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

We visit Up the Creek every time we come to Apalachicola, about once a year or so. It is a little quirky, for some, because you order at the counter and are given a table number for them to bring your food. But, you're able to sit where you like, inside or out, covered or not; for us, in this... More

Apalachicola is such a great spot and this restaurant was really good. Reasonable prices, fantastic view of the river with outdoor seating. The seafood was fresh, delicious and well-priced. Recommend it highly!

On Wednesday, November 12, 2014 my wife and I ate lunch in Apalachicola, Florida at the Up the Creek Raw Bar. We were greeted promptly and warmly as we entered the restaurant, which is located on the second floor overlooking the Apalachicola Bay. The restaurant's entrance is up a long flight of stairs, however there is an elevator located on... More

The peel and eat shrimp and the raw oysters were delicious! Definitely recommend getting some food and sitting out on the patio bar to watch the river.
