This little place is right on Oak Creek and very picturesque. It is old, rustic, and quite a nice surprise off the beaten path. It is near a lot of wineries, and looks like an old cowboy type place. The food is great! We had lunch there with friends who eat there all the time and swear by the place.... More

My husband and I just recently traveled to Sedona for one of the most memorable vacations we've ever had! That was, in part due, to the wonderful dining experience we had at Up the Creek. The food was fabulous and our waitress, Heather, was a delight! Being from Louisiana, I am sometime disappointed in the food as we travel. This... More

Went there the other night and the owner, Greg, recommended the smoked salmon appetizer he had just made. It was great!!! It tasted almost like pork, but of course it was salmon, with a very interesting tartar sauce on the side. I could eat it for a week and not get tired of it. We each had the prime rib,... More

Mark, Thank you for sharing about our smoked salmon. People are discovering this great appetizer and food. Even the Canadians who present themselves as supreme judges, state that our smoked salmon is some of the best they've ever had. We always use Fresh fish and of late, I've been using fresh Scottish Salmon and an Apple wood. I am very... More

Mamaa 1, I wish you could tell it all on the mountain high, because that is what many have said, both travelers and locals, that we are the best restaurant in the whole Sedona area.

Looking for a Happy Surprise? Take the scenic road to Page Springs, AZ, go to what is called a bar & grill -- and find yourself in an extraordinary restaurant. The site overlooks a bucolic stream, and the interior hints of its cowboy past, so the sublime nature of the food may take you by surprise. It took us back... More

It was the first time my parents have ever both been satisfied. My dad, sister, and her husband all ordered burgers that were fabulous. My mom and I got the wild mushroom creamed brucshetta and the soup special. We also got the shrimp cocktail. For dessert, we had the buttermilk pie, creme brulee, and the better than brad pit pie....

Thank goodness we took the advise from trip advisor and went here for dinner. It was a beautiful drive past the winery's and fish hatchery but you can easily pass this up looking around.
