Duck Creek & Monkey Island

grand lake o’ the cherokees

Monkey Island & Duck Creek

Two distinctly different locations serving hand-crafted cocktails made from carefully selected liquors, seasonally fresh produce and herbs.

Enjoy hand-battered specialties and house-made dishes featuring signature sauces, made fresh and based on family & heritage recipes from Chef Brandon and the Stanphill family.

Our drink menu is a labor of love and updated frequently throughout the year.  The locals love our infused crafted drink specials. Grand Lakers pop in often just to see what is coming up next.

On Monkey Island, there are several unique dining area options including an outside super deck, two unique inside bars, a covered patio we call “the Porch”, two dining rooms with different vibes, and a billiard room that includes vintage pinball, and a classic shuffle board. Everyone is sure to find their favorite spot!

On Monkey Island, music is the pulse of the entire venue. During dinner hours, you’ll usually hear an array of bartender favorite songs. Later in the night, expect to be entertained by eclectic live music performers, DJs playing to the crowd, and local customer playlists. Karaoke is a favorite pastime at the Swine where patrons can gain their fame on the Blind Swine stage! 

Blind Swine on Duck Creek is open (Spring 2021).  Take the boat over to enjoy a unique rockin’ dockin’ on the water experience, Blind Swine style. One of the best locations on the lake for breakfast!

Great atmosphere and service. Nice venue with every imaginable adult beverage. This is a place the “locals” in this resort community love to hang out.”

“Funky Decor & a Relaxed Vibe.”

Really cool, eclectic bar with great cocktails, good food, and a cool atmosphere. Highly recommend the “whisky pig” cocktail. Outdoor seating, funky decor, and relaxed vibe. Great for pre-dinner drinks, late night cocktails, or a relaxed dinner. We will be back.. ”
