We find the food and atmosphere at Up the Creek to be consistently good. Eat out on the porch and enjoy the view of the bay. Order at the counter and your server will deliver your meal to you. Great oysters here!!

Used to be great but now the menu has changed and food not as good and the prices have greatly increased. Ok for the tourists but not for this local! Still has the most fantastic views

We stopped in for a late lunch after a day of traveling. We both opted just for the crab and lobster bisque. It was absolutely delicious. Best we ever had. I highly recommend. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I do love this place, and it's not just the food. The food IS good, but admittedly it isn't why I return every time I am in the area. 1. The Apalachicola River view open (or glassed in for inclement weather) dining porch. 2. That...More

Definitely call before you go...or enjoy the walk to another restaurant if they are closed. It actually depends on the crowd.
