Nestled along the banks of Turner’s Creek is the Deen family’s brand-new restaurant, Paula Deen’s Creek House. With a nod to the coast from the beautiful blue hues and found driftwood hanging on the walls, guests can expect delicious Southern and seafood classics, along with the Deen Brothers’ signature barbecue!
With great outdoor seating and lots of cozy booths, this family-friendly eatery is open and ready for guests looking for great food, great service, and a great time! The grand opening was on Memorial Day, and some favorite dishes are already standing out, including the chargrilled oysters, the Deen Brothers’ BBQ Pulled Pork Tacos, and peel-and-eat shrimp (pro tip: dip the delicious house bread in the leftover juices). Of course, the menu has options for everyone: salads, sandwiches, seafood, and barbecue. Lighter options, like Brooke’s Savannah Salmon, Seared Ahi Tuna, and the Strawberry Chicken Salad have been popular, along with more traditional dishes, like Soft-Shell Crab Gumbo, and fried seafood.
This restaurant has truly been a labor of love down to every last detail. In fact, Jamie hand-made the American flag made of pallets that you’ll find in the restaurant and picked up the large driftwood piece hanging in the restaurant after Hurricane Matthew. Even the salad dressings are homemade! It’s all in the little touches. They created a restaurant that they would not only be proud to own, but also thrilled to visit as a customer. It’s a place for date night or dinner with the family. There’s great draft beer, baseball on the TV’s, an awesome bar, and plenty of space for the kids to play.
After you get your fill of good food and drinks, check out the store, located at the front of the restaurant. You can bring home some seasonings, sauces, or kitchenware to recreate some of the yummy dishes found on the menu.
