It's still about an 8 mile drive, but THE closest sit-down restaurant to Miccosukee is the Creekside Grill. The Creekside is one of those "sometimes OK but sometimes really good" places. It really depends on the people working the kitchen and your server.

They have a wide variety of menu items, including fresh seafood, steaks, chicken and such. There are usually a nice selection of fairly average desserts, and you can also enjoy wine or a cold beer with your meal.

Generally, meals are unhurried at Creekside, so don't go here for dinner wanting to leave in 35 minutes.

In the vicinity of the Creekside, there is also a small motel (The Seminole Inn), a convenience store (the Citgo Express), another smaller eatery (the ubiquitous Waffle House) and small "driving range, par 3" golfing facility.

If you visit Creekside on a night when the service is slow, you might have time to play the par 3 a few times if you can stay somewhere near par. ; )

Favorite Dish: Like I say, the food can be OK or very good. One particularly good night had some fresh catfish fillets available, and they were very tasty. I had mine fried, of course...adding a baked potato.

Dinner salads are, at best, very average. I'd go for cole slaw if offered.

There have also been visits that found very good southern fried chicken. I've had many friends tell me of excellent steaks at Creekside, but the one that I had (a NY strip) was pretty average. In retrospect, it was a bit overcooked.....

Anyway, this is not a highly recommended place from me. But if you find yourself in MIccosukee, and can't find your way to my house for some damn good food, you can take your chances over at Creekside.

It's reasonably priced, if nothing else. : )
