Rustic, simple, lots of children

Good food, good service. Building is rustic, but very comfortable....eat while overlooking the water. I liked everything, just too many little kids. That's my problem, not theirs....I will go back.

This is a very casual spot overlooking the water. Oysters were super fresh and delicious. We had plain raw oysters and Mediterranean raw oysters. Both were great. We shared the grilled conch cakes. They were tasty and chewy. This is a fun, relaxing spot.

This place is great, right on the river. The view was amazing. You order at counter, but food and drink is delivered to your seat. Food was very good, fried shrimp were large and succulent. the crab cakes were almost all crab.

This restaurant is located on the water with beautiful views. It is nothing fancy. You order from the counter, fill your own drinks, and then have a seat to wait for your food to be delivered. I ordered steamed oysters, which had a little too much butter for my taste, but were okay. The crab and lobster bisque was delicious!... More

We ate here while visiting St. George Island. The food was good but not the best that I have had, but then again I didn't have raw oysters which is what they are known for. My wife and I split the grilled Mahi Mahi which was tasty. I also ordered the Yellowfin Tuna dip which was different than what I... More

Nice view of the bay, everyone was happy with their food, except somehow one order didn't make it. It was not on the bill either. One wait staff person was not friendly or helpful, but the others were. You order at a counter, which was very difficult for a group of 10. I would advise making a list of what... More

Delicious! We were a family of four adults with a five and three year old. All were very happy with the menu choices and drinks available. The seafood was fresh and well prepared. The kids menu had good choices. There was outdoor and indoor seating. We sat outside and the evening view was beautiful. Relaxed enough in the early evening... More

Best seafood that I have had in years. Amazing service, great views, and great prices. I'm glad I got there before the crowds of families.

Good toppings for oysters. Fish dip was a little salty for me. Friendly wait staff. Here you order from a counter and then they bring it out to you. Indoor and outdoor seating.

I have been to Up the Creek several times and I don't understand how some travelers rave about it. It is overpriced for what they offer in my opinion. Their fresh oysters are delicious but they charge $2 more per dozen than other places in town. I have crab cakes and fried green tomatoes and were very disappointed. The crab... More
