We ate at Up the Creek Raw Bar on our first night at Cape San Blas. The food was simple and very good. I had the Southern Fella oysters. That is baked oysters topped with collards, bacon and cheese. I guess it's the southern take on Oysters Rockefeller. My brother-in-law ordered the jumbo steamed shrimp and I definitely want those... More

Up the Creek has been one of our favorites when visiting St George. Celebrating a birthday with delicious food and a beautiful view from the porch. Seafood bisque, oysters and shrimp, everything was good!

We found this place a few years ago when they really seemed like they were up the creek. With so many businesses that come and go, we are really happy they survived. This is a great place to enjoy.

Food was wonderful. Prices were reasonable. Best oysters I've had in the area. Great view and laud back atmosphere. (Including Indian Pass, which has become overpriced and overrated)

We were only in Apalachicola for one day so we could eat at only one restaurant. We walked around the small town and looked at everyone's menus. We wanted something very local, which means Oysters/seafood and decided on Up the Creek. Perfect atmosphere, dining right on the water. Best oysters I have ever had. I wasn't sure which ones to...

We went with our cousins and ate here! We ordered 2 dozen cooked oysters. My cousins ordered the Southern fellas ( a takeoff of Oysters Rockefeller) and we ordered the Mediterranean. INCREDIBLE! Our waiter recommended the Conch cake! Just as Incredible as the Mediterranean oysters! Go eat here!

Not a lot of choices on the menu. View was great. Had a Gator Empanada and left to go eat a full meal somewhere else. The Empanada was good though. OK but a bit pricey considering what is available.
