“Delicious. Clean. Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

The most ethereal raw oysters and rich crab lobster bisque for me. A jumbo shrimp basket for my husband. All of the highest quality. All you could ask for at a great price.

“Great oysters”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Located overlooking the marshes and water it was a nice location to enjoy lunch, which of course was mainly seafood of a very good quality as far as we were concerned.

Awesome grilled blackened chicken sandwich! And Awesome fries! The burgers are also good. They have a salad bar so you Can dress up your sandwiches however you would like. Great staff and great view of the bay. You can sit outside or inside. The building is very unique and cool.

“Yum!Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

Casual dining, pet friendly, GREAT oysters, wonderful water views--couldn't be better!! We plan to make this an annual stop on our way to Key West, especially after this year. We were late in arriving at our hotel, after a long day of driving in the rain. The hotel person recommended Up the Creek, and called to check if they were still serving. They stayed open for us, and we had THE BEST oysters!! We went back the next day, and were not disappointed then, either. It's a little hard to find, but well worth it!!

“Great Food - Family and pet Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We visited Up the Creek this past week and liked it so much we ate there the very next night! Some notes on what we ate and what we loved and why:
1) Alligator burger - delicious - really it was my first time eating alligator and it was so good I am now considering asking for recipe and a way to get my hands on ground alligator meat year round.
2) Raw Oysters - ah my dad and mom ordered these and LOVED them and my dad has had oysters many places and say they were the best he has had.
3) Regular hamburger -my 9 year old say it was the best he has had and he is picky.
4) Salmon sandwich w/ bacon and avocado - yum - perfectly cooked.
5) Grouper sandwich - grilled - it was perfectly cooked - great seasoning.
6) Alligator chili - great but a bit on spicy side.
7) Crab cakes - fresh and perfect texture and seasoning.

Service was great / friendly. They were busy the first night we went so service was a bit slow... but the next night we arrived early (5:30ish) and had no problem.

The patio is great as is covered and has great view. We sat there since we had our pet w/ us.

Highly recommend and plan to go again!
