We stopped here for lunch, and it was a great choice! Very friendly service and the food was nice. Fun to watch the folks come with their dogs to the creek and play in the open space by the tables.

Choosing a restaurant in Vail is not easy, but I am so glad we chose Up the Creek when we only had one night to enjoy a great dinner in Vail. We went fairly early (6:15pm) and because it was off season and a rainy night we were almost the only ones there. However the restaurant filled as the night... More

We visit Vail every year and had never been to this restaurant. It was a nice day so decided to stop in for lunch and enjoy the patio seating along Gore Creek. There is also tables inside but we did not go thru so not sure of # of tables. We were seated promptly, and waitress appeared with water shortly... More

Great outdoor setting by Gore creek. Food was good and ambiance on a sunny day can't be beat. They push you a little on the menu but otherwise service is good.

We had an unusual and enjoyable waterfront dining experience here. The owner/operator (Peter) was on site for our visit and he made sure we were well taken care of. We highly recommend the truffle fries with parmesan fondue. The BLT was really good - made with bacon that had been cured in-house. Wheat bread was fabulous. It was a little... More

This informal restaurant is worth a try. Above Page Springs on Page Springs Road, you can see the creek from inside or sit on a porch that overlooks it--if you want the little porch, which we like, go early. The menu is all home made and very interesting. Some things we love and some not as much--but we don't agree... More

My wife and I stopped by this restaurant for lunch. The location of the restaurant is among the best in Vail -- right beside Gore Creek. It was a nice sunny day and we enjoyed our meal on the veranda. Service was good. Food very tasty above average. I had a delicious BLT sandwich, chips and beer. My wife enjoyed... More

We stopped here on our first night in Vail for an appetizer and drink, thinking we'd move on to another restaurant for dinner. We were pleasantly surprised. We ordered from the starter menu - mussels in cream broth with chorizo and crab cake - both were delicious , among the best we've ever had, and very filling - we never... More

I love this place in the Vail Village. Don't miss this sitting outside riverside is so relaxing. The menu had great choices. I dined here a couple of times. I had the Clam Chowder, was wonderful. Salads are also very good. Also I had the Turkey and Brie sandwich with pears on sourdough bread. So good. The chicken Tortilla soup... More
