Atmosphere and view are really great and different to many other restaurants. Watching the sunset with House Specialties like the Crab Cake or the Gulf Shrimps is an unforgettable experience. Together with a nice drink - fantastic! You order at the counter, enjoy the view and after some minutes you get your lunch or dinner. Enjoy!

We sort of stumbled on this place and were delighted we did. I ordered the Mediterranean Oysters (baked) to share and they were great; the grilled conch cakes were good, too. Super Casual.

When in Apalachicola, eat oysters. And one of the best places to do just that is Up The Creek Raw Bar. Handy location looking out on the bay and great food and beverage. I chose the Seafood Gumbo - delicious - then dove into Mediterranean Oysters, with an olive, caper & garlic tapenade and parmesan cheese. Toss in a few... More

Had some of the BEST raw oysters I have ever had here. I LOVE raw oysters, and always thought the best that I had were in Wellfleet Cape Cod. These were just as good!! My wife and I had some super fresh grilled Mahi Mahi. The view from the deck looks over the bay, and the shrimp boats. ( Fresh... More

Nothing fancy, except the view of the river running into Apalachicola Bay, but the Southern Fella oysters (cooked lightly, with collard greens, butter, parmesan cheese, bread crumbs and crispy bacon) are not to be missed. Try to eat just one.

Mediocre at best. Food was rather bland. Stay away from Brussels sprouts and crab cakes. Fish tacos were decent but nothing to rave about.

I brought my friend here for lunch earlier this week based on my visit here last year. Menu was pretty much the same, prices have gone up some. The service was noticeably much worse than the last time I was here, so much so that I may question another visit. Management should take note that you are potentially losing customers... More
