July 3- upon arriving I was told by frustrated waiting customers to get on the "list lady's" list. After finding & being greeted by the stressed & agitated list lady, She told me that the kitchen was backed up an hour and a half & the wait list would be an hour. I opted to remain on her list as...

Coming back from dog Island, Florida, on June 27 2015, we stopped at up the creek raw bar! This bar exceeded our expectations! Excellent food, friendly people , a beautiful view and just a great time. My 11-year-old son had sushi and he said it was the best he's had. My husband had the southern fellas oysters, and said they... More

Popular place and I can see why! Came with a group of about 8 people and everyone raved about the food quality and value. Raw oysters were larger than other places in the area. Parmesan baked oysters were tasty. The calamari was the best I have had in awhile (the breading had great flavor!). Also ordered the conch-cakes to try... More

The yellow-fin tuna dip alone would be enough to earn this place five stars but everything else is on a par. A great selection of not your usual ice-cold beer,friendly staff and superb oysters,natch. Everything about this restaurant works. Highly recommended.

Loved the atmosphere of this restaurant and the food. We had the blackened shrimp, raw oysters and steamed shrimp and everything was great. It is located on the bay and you can sit inside or out. The only thing I didn't like was that you had to go to the counter to place your order but everything else was great.

Good oysters with a great view of the creek. Must sit on the porch! Mignonette and southern fella were our favorite oysters. Great frog legs too.

I really like this place! Great oysters, nice views and good service! You can sit inside in AC or outside (and bring your dog) on the deck looking out at the water. I love the oysters but there are so many other delicious items on the menu. You go up to the front desk and order but after that everything... More

Hit a couple places in Apalachicola on our first visit and this was a good find. Wife and I split several different things to try as much as possible. Triggerfish sandwich was good as were the fried shrimp. My raw oysters were not on ice which is kinda traditional, but on a plastic tray. They were good, but the outside... More
