A friend in Sedona gave us the wonderful tip about UP THE CREEK as we were doing some wine tasting in the Page Springs Road area this afternoon. We had the special ~ chicken sandwich topped with a delicious barbecue sauce and freshly roasted Hatch Chili and sliced tomato. Dawn Koss (co-owner with her husband) waited on us. Easy to... More

We will continue to be one of the best restaurants in the Verde Valley~ I don't know why you continue to come back if you don't like our restaurant (by your 2 reviews of us) creating reviews filled with lies & telling people to go to Grasshopper.

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 rustic, charming restaurant was a surprise to us because from the outside it looks so unassuming! We were greeted by a very gracious hostess and waitress. The... More

Thank you for dining with us. So you know, all our steaks are Certified Black Angus. Our Prime Rib special, every Saturday night is Harris Ranch Angus, grass fed all natural beef. The same goes for our burgers. Our filet mignon has been getting a lot of attention, as many have commented how it is one of the best they've... More

We were staying in Sedona, & after a long drive down a dark and winding road we came to this amazing restaurant on the side of the road. We went in & found this charming restaurant overlooking Paige Springs Creek. We started with what has to be the best appetizer we have ever had-Wild Mushroom creamed Bruschetta! Unfortunately, the owner... More

Hello, Well, you hit on many of the most popular items on our menu. The mushroom bruschetta that I created has been a long-time favorite. The buttermilk pie along with our other three house made desserts have a strong following. We are bringing in fresh seafood every week and customers are really enjoying the wonderful dishes like, fresh jumbo scallops,... More

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.
