Quite frankly I am shocked this place has been around so long! Desserts are their claim to fame! What a joke - you might just pick up better fare at your local grocery store - One person raves about the pies, another the cakes and you hear

Not sure what the scoop is here.The buzz is this place is known for their cakes, pies and heavenly treats! Come on people get a grip here! The desserts are the pits! The pies are undercooked and the cakes are drenched in fat! This place is

Can honestly say I've seen it all! I definitely must be a glutton for punishment! After visiting Bishop Art's we ran across this place off McKinney and thought ok maybe this place is better than the dump in the neighborhood! Still laughing

So after reading alot of the reviews I still decided to go to Cretia's. It was a Friday night I had dinner with friends, and ended up staying for the live music and Dj. For starters we had the cheese board which was extremly well

This place obviously makes their money through alcohol. They sure push it. Their food was mediocre and their pie was a little raw. Both food and pie needed to stay in the oven a little longer. But everyone here is for the booze. This

Pros: tons of alcohol

Cons: tons of drunks

This place offers a great environment to go have a few drinks, and also offers some interesting food. People don't primarily go for the food, they go for the laid back environment and the exquisite beauty of their surroundings. To read

I'm not sure who's idea it was to do Easter Brunch at Cretia's. But that was a major mistake. The service was extremely slow. The staff seemed to be running around with their heads cut off. We were offered bottomless mimosas. Well no

Probally the worst expeience of my life! I was told they had good food, good music and we would have a great time! Wrong on all counts!! The place lacked in ambience - the music was a throw back band from who the hell knows! The only people dancing were drunk and out of their freaking minds! Pathetic group of drunks! You felt like you were some dumb ass honky tonk and any minute Jethro was going come in wheeling old granny in! Definitely not my scene! PLEASE! This place is filled with dumb idiotic punks constantly trying to get your number! C'mon dudes not everyone is out to get laid. Give me a break. I will never step foot in this place again. BTW the food sucked, the cake was gross and the service here was the worst I've had in a long time. Nothing here to see the whole place was a waste of this writers time!!

If you're looking for a place to impress your date - This definitely isn't the place bud. The service here is laughable the staff seem like a bunch of walking zombies.
Where the hell does anyone find these people?
You would fare better at the local Wal-Mart at least there you know for sure you're scraping the bottom of the barrel. If you're out to get drunk and food is the last thing on your mind then by all means patronize this hell hole you'll definitely find you'll score here. The place is noisy, the staff leaves nothing to be desired, Management?!! You know this place is lacking direction the minute you walk in.
Uptown has a festering sore on its back and it is this poor excuse of restaraunt called Cretia's make it GO AWAY!!

I had a dinner date on a Saturday night. It seemed like everyone there would rather be somewhere else. The food was bland and tasteless and our waiter only came once. After dinner we decided to stay and have a drink....Big mistake one

Giving this establishment 1 star is WAY too kind but unfortunately it is the lowest rating possible. From the terrible service, manager who did NOT care, depressing ambiance, and cold food which kept me up all night with an upset stomach,

I live in the neighborhood so when Cretia's moved to its new location I checked it out a couple times with friends. It was alright but I hadn't been back because the new spot seemed more like a club than restaurant or bar. Never the less,

I always heard how awesome this place was....maybe before it moved to the new location??? I'll just say I was not impressed with the staff nor several of the overtly drunk patrons roaming around the place.

My experience at Cretia's left me no desire to return. This so called restaurant has a dark, seedy uncomfortable feeling. Like everyone who works there would rather be somewhere else. This attracts a seedy crowd. The service was poor, the food was undesirable and atmosphere was that of a pick up bar. No matter how good they say the cake is, it doesn't make up for everything else that goes wrong. They just need to get new management.

What I LOVE about this bar is that you can go with a big group and there is something for everyone! If you want to dance there is always the darker room with the dance floor and DJ. If you want the normal bar scene there is a large front room and also a great balcony. Many nights they have live music as well as the DJ. I would always suggest this place to people who have crowds who may want a mixed scene all in one place!

I took a date here and regreted it. The service was slow and impersonal. The food arrived "very" late and was cold! When we spoke to a manager, he seemed to be preoccupied with something else. He assured us the owner would call us. NEVER DID! And there was no attempt to comp our food or anything! So we basically god bad service, cold food and overpaid for it!

Pros: I was able to write a novel while I waited for my food!

Cons: No saving grace

Love the food and the location is great. The bar atmosphere at night is tons of fun, and the relaxed atmosphere by day is a great place to have some coffee and some sweets. If you're looking for a family place, I would avoid this location. It suits the younger crowd very well.

Cretia's is now at 4900 McKinney not the 4400 blk. People rave about this dump and I have yet to figure this out! The place is not an upscale sit down restaurant. Maybe this is where I went wrong. I was looking for a nice place to relax with the wife after a long hectic week. I was told we had to check out the new place on McKinney and there we go! WRONG MOVE! the minute we were seated should have been clue #one. The place is noisy, the staff seemed preoccupied or just not in the mood to serve. We were both very upset by the time we got out. Thank you Cretia's for ruining the weekend! We vowed never to go back! I don't care if this was a fluke but this FLUKE just put a very bad taste in my mouth!!! This is a BAR! The staff of this place are all throwbacks from IHOP! The Manager LOL - I don't know where they found this character! I'm sorry but no repeat visit from us! CRETIA'S ON MCKINNEY is not a business I want in my neighborhood. BAD FOR THE AREA!!!! You look at the 5 stars given surely they are in with the owner of this dump.
