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.

We stopped for lunch before a wine tour and to accommodate the number in our party (nine) were fortunate to be seated downstairs by ourselves. Wonderful view of the creek and we were even able to turn the radio to the ASU game. The staff was very pleasant and able to answer all our questions about the menu. We had... More

Emto, Perhaps you'll be our last review as the original owners of Up the Creek Grill, as there are new owners as of 12-1-14. None the less, we are so pleased that you are happy with our freshly prepared dishes....desserts and all! Unfortunately, I've put a lot of effort into many of the recipes and guard them with pride.

Sherrrrry, So glad you had a chance to try our unique Shrimp Cocktail. This dish took some time to dial in. It's inspired by our friends to the south. Using all fresh ingredients, this cocktail is not just for dipping, but consuming the whole batch as it's loaded with chunks of avocado, cucumber, fresh cilantro and many fine spices. We... More

My wife, myself and three friends decided to do dinner at Up The Creek after four hours on the Verde Valley Train out of Clarkdale, AZ (that's another review).

Great food, friendly and attentive people, a classy rustic ambiance, with a beautiful view of Oak Creek.

Everything from the dressings to the desserts are in-house and fresh made! Owner Dawn Foss promises a unique and rustic environment, while enjoying a memorable lunch or dinner.

Amber, It may sound strange, but it is not every restaurant owner's desire to be the best or have the best food, etc. Most restaurants in Sedona service the tourists and therefore don't need to put a lot into the quality of their dishes as most customers are one-time visitors. We on the other-hand, do want to be one of... More

I always read the bad reviews after I've liked a place. We received a recommendation from the volunteer Ranger out at Palatki Ruins. We had good food at a local joint. It' only has a few tables and we did wait for a table. This was not a problem and the food and the view were worth the short drive!
