Casual Culture & Fine Dining

Inn on the Creek's restaurant & bar is called Alexander's Distillery. (Named after the distillery located on the grounds from 1861-65, which washed away in a flood. You may view our historic marker, located between the restaurant & manor). Patrons enjoy 1st, 2nd, & 3rd floor seating with verandas overlooking the creek on each level. Its warm aubergine & copper walls contrast the amazing art representation from local galleries. The stunning view of Salado Creek as well as the grounds of the neighboring estate provide the perfect spot to enjoy your favorite beverage. Patrons choose from a variety of entree selections.

Full Southern-Style Breakfast

Each guest room reservation includes attending our single seating for breakfast (at 9am) on the 1st floor of our on-site restaurant.

With prior notice, guests are invited to add-on breakfast delivery to their room for a nominal $20 fee.

Breakfasts are usually different each morning of your stay with us, and feature fresh fruit, coffee or hot tea, and orange juice. An Inn on the Creek morning meal is an excellent start to the day!
