Description: Along an historic highway towards Wine Country you'll step back into how the west once was. There's nothing else like it as you dine in one of the most unique restaurants in Arizona! You'll be impressed with the rustic and authentic cowboy eatery. Enjoy fine steaks & seafood in the lush tree tops & large creek-side setting while watching the wildlife below. Eagles call this home, while the beavers build and the otters frolic. Find herons, wood ducks, turtles and others scouting out where they too find some of the best food in these here parts. Fine dining in a historic, but casual atmosphere. Join us for one of the best culinary experiences around. Freshly prepared and made to order Angus, Dry-Aged & organic grass-fed meats, homemade soups and desserts. Want the best; then come out West and see what all the locals are talking about. Full bar & fine local and international wines.

This was a great little find. Our friends, who live in the area, invited us to join them in trying the restaurant, their first time as well. The atmosphere was warm and comfy and our table overlooked the creek. I ordered the Steamed Mussels (black-n-blue) which were wonderful!!! We live in California and I've never had mussels that were this... More

We started with a friendly greeting and prompt seating with information on the specials. Perfect pace with respect for our relaxed attitude. Waitress left us with a smile with attentive service.

Locals recommended this historic building restaurant 15 minutes from Sedona. Sited on a lovely creek we enjoyed an excellent trout dish from their local menu. Great water views, friendly staff, and great food.

My husband and I got Up the Creeks name from Trip Advisor and loved our experience there. Food was so good and staff very friendly. The staff even offered information on surrounding areas that was very useful. We had a great lunch and came back another day for a dinner.

If you are headed to Sedona you should stop at this restaurant for dinner. We were a group of 8, 4 adults and 4 children, who headed here after a horseback ride.

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
