One of the many things Salt Creek Grille – Princeton prides themselves on is being a scratch-based kitchen. As the months change from winter to spring to summer each year, Executive Chef Wally Weaver is tasked with ensuring Salt Creek Grille’s ever-changing menu is sourced with the freshest of local ingredients. Below are a few summer favorites worth a visit!
Start off your night with a Blueberry Mojito while super sweet blueberries are still in season! Made with Tillie Gold rum, homemade blueberry-mint syrup, fresh lemon, and mint, this is the perfect summer staple to quench your thirst. The blueberry-mint syrup is made special by Executive Chef Weaver with fresh blueberries and mint leaves before being combined with homemade simple syrup. The cool and refreshing combination gives the drink its signature flavor.
Caesar Over Mesquite Salad
For a unique take on an old classic, try Salt Creek Grille’s Caesar over Mesquite Salad, an appetite icebreaker that features mesquite-grilled romaine as a base, topped with freshly shaved asiago and house-made caesar dressing, served with focaccia croutons. Add grilled-to-order sliced steak, Jidori chicken breast, sustainable salmon, or perfectly prepared shrimp to satisfy your summer cravings further!

For a hearty meal, the Creek Burger is a delectable choice, made with ground short rib, chuck and brisket, house spread of caramelized onion and bacon jam, topped with arugula and aged white cheddar cheese. It’s all served on a brioche bun, and your mouth will water just reading the menu. Truffle asiago fries make for the perfect side—sure to leave you full and satisfied.
Wow your tastebuds with Steak Frites, a mesquite-grilled flat iron steak exquisitely paired with grilled tomatoes and béarnaise for added flavor. Also served with a side of crowd-favorite asiago garlic fries, this dish is a great fit for an upscale version of classic steak on the grill.
