We had a great experience with Creative Outdoor Kitchen Company for building a beautiful Custom Outdoor Kitchen Cabinet, bar, and Grill. Julien and his team were exceptional not only for the quality of their product and excellent job but also for their honesty. Julien was very patient, helpful, and respectful when my husband and I asked him for some changes in our design. I would highly recommend this company, especially Julien for his professional, skillful, responsive, and reliable work.

Not only convenient and affordable, super nice, dependable and on time. Doesn’t get any better than that! Super nice guys and great to work with - would highly recommend them for any outdoor bar and BBQ area.
— Deana H, Sacramento
These guys are awesome! They quoted me the best price per linear foot and they delivered the island in less than a week! I called them on Saturday, they provided the final CAD drawing on Sunday and they installed it on Wednesday. I highly recommend them. Give Julien a call if your are thinking of putting in a grill!’
— Jeff Z, El Dorado Hills
Julien was wonderful throughout the whole process. We emailed each other back and forth about 35 times between a week or so. Julien would reply right away, even late late at night. I changed around my ideas multiple times, and he was patient with me and provided great changes and ideas when I asked him. I would definitely recommend this company to others who are looking for an outdoor kitchen. Custom Mak Grills 1star general bbq smoker, Edgestar beverage fridge, and stainless access cabinet. Thanks Julien, keep up the great customer service!
— Mike S, Shingle Springs
I can not say enough good things about our experience. When I contacted Julien he was able to come out the next day to look at our yard and help me come up with some ideas. The other companies I contacted didn’t return my phone calls or were a few weeks out. Julien sent me the 3D design that night and I was able to go over it with my husband and make any chances. Julien was very professional and got back to us immediately with every change order and was very reasonable. Within a week they had our kitchen built and installed. We were very impressed with the way installed our kitchen they took their time and pay attention to every detail and made sure we were happy. I would highly recommend creative outdoor kitchen to everyone we could not be happier with our kitchen thank you so much Julien you guys are awesome!!
— Stephanie G, Placerville
We contacted several contractors for our outdoor kitchen, but knew immediately that we would go with Creative Outdoor Kitchens. From the outset both Julien and Eric were professional and courteous. They did an excellent job guiding us through the design process. Change requests were responded to immediately, and their attention to detail was exceptional. In the end they designed and installed a cabinet that met our needs perfectly. If you are looking for a contractor to build your outdoor kitchen, you would be hard pressed to find anyone better than Julien and Eric.
— Kevin D, Fair Oaks
We used this company for a remodeling project. They made the entire process painless. Extremely easy to communicate with. Erik was very patient with the frequent changes we made. He is a perfectionist and it shows through in the quality of his work. The job was completed on time and under budget! I would highly recommend working with them.
— Denise V, Folsom
Thank you Julien and Erik for the wonderful job. I highly recommend Creative Outdoor Kitchens if you are looking to build an outdoor space. The process from design to build went smooth. Julien and Erik did a great job communicating each phase of the project, showed up on the scheduled date and on-time. They take exception pride in their workmanship and build a quality product. The partnership with Diablo Grills was great because we could work together on the design specifications. They also did a great job cleaning up after the install which was nice for the subs. I will post pictures once the final project is complete.
— Brandon K, Roseville
My wife and I have been talking about a backyard bbque and fireplace for past several years. Creative Outdoor Kitchen was our 2nd company to give us some ideas and bid. This process was so easy. Julien came out on a Sunday, help by asking question, showing other designs. Then marked out the design on the concrete with blue tape, took measurements and gave us some ideas. Next day, we had 3D drawings and he helped modify until we had it to our liking. Very professional, by far the best price and well connected helping complete the bbque. We went on vacation, came back it our units were done. Install process went great. We could not be happier. I have already recommended to several friends, and will continue to do so. Solid company, great customer service and they helped with design option until we got exactly what we wanted.
— Daryl G, Rancho Cordova
Working with Julian and his team was awesome. They were quick to reply to my inquiry and we had an outdoor kitchen within a week. These gentleman are pros and respectful the whole way through. We are very pleased and can’t wait to start using our outdoor kitchen.
— Amy W, Loomis
Amazing job and even better service. Highly recommend Julien and his crew. They arrived on time and by far the most affordable without feeling cheap. Had one small issue and they came out the next day and fixed it. Great attitudes and very friendly. Recommend to everyone and will definitely use them again.
— Pete T, North Highlands
These guys were great to work with. I priced out building my outdoor set-up myself and with all the steel studs, nuts/bolts, concrete-board, etc. I’d need, they beat my price by 30% and were still able to make some well earned cash for themselves. They worked with me on design, provide great cad-mock-ups, didn’t blink twice at change requests as we were improving the design and built it to spec. (and I mean to the millimeter which I needed because I’d ordered some of my own stainless drawers and such to self install). When it came to the install day, they were pros. Shimmed it nicely and had taken the extra steps of building in bases for the fridge so when the shimmed it the fridge stayed level. These guys rocked it!
— Andy K, Gold River

— Sandra D, El Dorado Hills
Called these guys up and showed up on time in a rainy day. Very professional and not pushy at all.
They listened to our ideas and added some of their own. The final design looks awesome. Thank Julien and Erik. You did an awesome job.
— Reza M, Lincoln
Spent couple months trying to design and choose the right materials for the outdoor kitchen. Came upon Creative Outdoor Kitchens through yelp. Sent Julien an email with all of the outdoor components I had already purchased for the outdoor kitchen. He drew up a design and sent it back over email, very fast process. Also gave me pricing over email. Once I saw the design I stopped researching for other outdoor kitchen materials. He made a trip out to my house and drew out the design on the ground, did some final mods in the field. Then we agreed to the pricing and set a date for install. They showed up on install day and had everything in place with couple hours. Very pleased with the whole process from start to finish. Julien was very professional and the work shows. Would highly recommend Creative Outdoor Kitchens to anyone looking to build an outdoor kitchen.
— Manny B, Roseville
Awesome customer service, rapid and constant communication. We were very happy with the finished product and it ended up costing way less than any other estimate that we got. Highly recommend.
— Jeff W, Folsom
So impressed with this company!! Julien came out and spent hours helping us create the perfect outdoor bar and grill units for our space. He was professional, knowledgeable and priced very reasonably!! We are so happy with our finished product!! Thank you Julien and your team!!
— Julie I, Folsom
Great Job!
Great Price!
Great Quality!
Professional gentlemen with excellent communication.
Emails & text messages regarding project always responded in timely manner. Start to finish job went smoothly.
— Rob K, EDH
Outstanding customer service, design flexibility, creativity and extremely credible! I’m so happy with Julien and the whole team from start to finish! Thanks for making my dream outdoor kitchen come true!
— Charlie T, Wilton
Julien was great to work with considering all the design changes I threw at him. He was patient and responsive when working on the final design of the BBQ. The BBQ arrived early, and they were very informative on the little details for when I have the finishers onsite to complete the rest of the project. I would highly recommend this team!!!
— Meg L, Roseville
I couldn’t have asked for a better experience from start to finish. Julien and Erik are very good at what they do and super easy to work with. Even gave me the tips I needed to install my own components. Communication and customer service was great. The prices are very competitive. I considered building my own island but it didn’t make sense with the prices they offer. Thanks again!
— Steve T, Sacramento
Creative Outdoor Kitchens - Best customer service I’ve seen in a long while. Let’s start from the first meet. Julian was on time and prepared to help my wife and I design our outdoor kitchen. He knew the products we were going to install and the measurements. He helped us get what we needed and wanted. Julian then made a plan (CAD drawing) and sent it to us for our approval. When deliver was set up. Again Creative Outdoor Kitchen was on time and polite. When the structure was delivered you can definitely tell the fine level of expertise used to build the structure. Also when leveling, the “good enough” attitude was not good enough for this company. They made sure that this outdoor kitchen was spot on level.
These guys must have had great parents, because not only did they surpass my expectations with the service level, but both young men were extremely polite and well mannered.
— Jon A, Roseville
Highly recommend Creative Outdoor Kitchens! Julien is very professional, timely, and an absolute pleasure to deal with! Julien came out and looked at our backyard and listened to our outdoor kitchen ideas. He had some great suggestions for us and made some really good points that we did not think of. He very promptly sent us an email with a computer design and layout which was exactly what we envisioned. The bid was also very reasonable and fair. Julien was very patient with me when I changed my mind several times on a few of the dimensions and details and he immediately emailed me updated drawings with my changes. When Julien and his crew did the installation it turned out exactly like it was drawn up and the workmanship is top notch and very sturdy. They also left the job site very neat and tidy. Great Company!!!
— Lyndi D, Folsom
Creative Outdoor Kitchens is awesome! Really helpful as Julien takes the time to listen to your needs and even made suggestions which of course were better ideas than what we could think think of.

We’re not even finished yet and we’ve been getting compliments from contractors on how sturdy and professionally done the framing is.

Do all your shopping around first than call Creative! You won’t regret it!
— John D, Lincoln
Julien did a great job with improving my outdoor kitchen conceptual design, fabricating and installing in record time and even suggesting/pointing to important details about finishing work.

I would highly recommend your company and would hire again for project like this.
— Zeljko M, Folsom
‘These guys are great! I have worked with them on several outdoor kitchen projects and each time they exceed my expectations. The quality of the workmanship is excellent and no matter what crazy design I come up with they are able to put it down on paper and then build the structure just as I envision it. Their pricing is affordable and fair. The product is easy to finish, durable and looks fantastic. I would recommend these guys for any outdoor living area you have in mind. Be creative these guys can bring your ideas to life.
— Casey C, Roseville
Great from start to finish. Julien and Erik are professional, courteous, and responsive. Their design ideas are great and the end product is outstanding. They were very patient while I went through a couple rounds of design tweaks and were quick to give helpful tips and produce revised 3D renderings, which really helped me visualize the final product in my backyard. If you are looking for an outdoor barbecue island for a fair price, you’d be silly not to consider Creative Outdoor Kitchens!
— Sean M, Roseville
From start to finish, this BBQ Island and Firepit turned out outstanding. The design process began with Julien and no detail was left unnoticed. Through the revision process, Julien was able to design an amazing island to absolutely meet our entertaining needs. Not only did he design the island, he was very knowledgeable in suggesting all the appropriate components to make Island complete.
On the day of delivery, Erik and Julien Completed the install without a hitch. Erik’s attention to detail did not go unnoticed. We are still working on the finishing touches, but it turned out amazing. These guys are a class a operation, and they will exceed your needs when it comes to building you an amazing island.
— Todd C, Rocklin
Excellent customer sevice and communication from the start. The measuring and installation was detailed and meticulous. They provided a beautiful plan/diagram prior to fabrication. They provided all the advice necessary to arrange the purchase of the BBQ equipment and surface materials. I highly recommend them if you want to build a backyard kitchen.
— Robert C, El Dorado Hills
Julien and Erik are pros. They walk you through the process, help save on overhead by instructing on being your own general, and provide good referrals for subs. They’re very responsive and the quality of their work is top notch.
— Robert B, El Dorado Hills
Julien created our BBQ island for us and it turned out beautifully. We weren’t sure exactly what size we wanted to go with that would work for our space, so he came out and taped the concrete while we made adjustments so we could see exactly what we were working with along with sending us a couple different design ideas as well. He was so professional and pleasant to work with. He was also very responsive to email and phone calls. I highly recommend Creative Outdoor Kitchens.
— Charlene V, El Dorado Hills
Wow! Erik and Julien do a great job. I wish all contractors we’ve worked with were like them. We did a major back yard makeover, including a new outdoor kitchen. The kitchen had to be redesigned 3 times as we changed major elements in the back yard. Julien was absolutely great about it, and in the end gave us exactly what we wanted. Not only that, but the time from the final design to build was literally just a few days, and at a very reasonable price. They recommended a great resource for the appliances (Diablo Grills in Roseville), and installed everything in just a few hours! My landscape designer was so impressed he asked for their name so he can work with them again. I give these guys my HIGHEST recommendation! Stay tuned for pictures as soon as all our finish work is completed....
— Tamara B, Fair Oaks
I explored every option and did months of research before deciding on going with a steel frame custom island. Design, service, and overall cost were the drivers in my decision.
From our very first email communication, I was completely satisfied with their customer service. Great designs which I had modified several times, and a totally fair quote to do the job made going with Creative Kitchen Designs a no-brainer.
On installation day, I was even more impressed with the level of professionalism the guys exhibited and the craftsmanship and I HIGHLY recommend them.
— Harv G, Sacramento
Very knowledgeable staff and a great experience installing our new outdoor kitchen! Highly recommend!
— Donna B, Sacramento
Working with Creative Outdoor Kitchens on my BBQ island was the best decision I made! From day one, Julien was so helpful. He came out to the house multiple times to take measurements and make sure the dimensions of my island fit the backyard perfectly. The cost is exremely competitive compared to other companies, and their estimate was straightforward and included everything I requested from the beginning.
The island was installed perfectly. Julien and his crew were professional throughout, and the quality of the island is outstanding! I couldn’t be happier with the island. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a great outdoor kitchen for their backyard!!
