We had the oysters and enjoyed them a lot. Nice view of the bay and friendly staff. We will come here first next time in town.

We chose this raw bar over several others in the area due to reviews as most of the oyster bars have a similar menu. The system they have set up, wait in line to order, then hover over tables until someone is done is poorly organized and if you are with 4 or more people (we had a party of... More

Good bisque, cold beer, but didn't enjoy the smoked tuna. Menu looked good, but the starlings were too much to bare on the deck. Moved on.

Really enjoyed our Sunday lunch on the screened-in porch overlooking the river. My daughter and I split the fried shrimp basket with sweet potato fries--very tasty. The yellowfin tuna dip was excellent and the portion generous. Order inside at the counter. Very laid back atmosphere...we love looking at the marsh, river and boats from another time. Didn't try the oysters... More

We detoured to this place on a recent road trip and it was worth the drive. The restaurant has a laid back, old Florida feel. Lovely view from our outdoor seats. Delicious fresh oysters - we ate a dozen steamed and dozen raw - all good. Wish we lived closer - I could get used to that!

We have been to "Up the Creek" a dozen+ times the last few years, and always loved the creative menu. While the views are the best in Apalachicola, and the service was good, the oysters were a little below our expectations this visit. I'm hoping for some of that creativity on our next visit, it's still a great little place!

This spot was a bit hard to find at first, but this is now our go-to restaurant in Apalachicola. Don't let the outside of the restaurant fool you. The restaurant is clean and casual, and the menu has some nice upscale twists. The oysters and shrimp baskets are particularly good. Also, we have had the specials, such as the grilled... More

My wife and I stopped here for lunch. We wanted to sample the seafood, so she ordered the crab cakes and I ordered the fish tacos. On a whim I also ordered some peel and eat shrimp. To us, on that day, our opinion was..."skip the tacos and the crab cakes". Both were very average. But the shrimp were by... More
