About Us

Dry Creek Grill is the latest creation of local residents John and Holly Smith. Before conceptualizing Dry Creek Grill, Holly and John Smith ran and still run another restaurant in the Willow Glen area of San Jose. They felt that San Jose needed a quality steak, burger, and barbecue place that also offered a unique type of upscale ambiance with a laid back and comfortable feel.

Thus came along Dry Creek Grill. Prime steaks, super slow cooked barbecue, burgers that use meat ground in house, hand mixed cocktails, wine and beer that creates an experience like no other. Here you can have the best of both worlds, the fun, lip-smacking barbecue food combined with an upscale ambiance that doesn't require snobby, irksome ties, impersonally spaced out chairs and hushed conversations.

The bar is lively, without being loud. The crowd is casual but fashionable all the same. We bring in local talent to play live music from time to time. Dry Creek Grill is truly a perfect balance of a great, fun night our of town, mixed with just enough restraint and composure. We welcome you to experience it for yourself.
