Up the Creek is always awesome! We had our first set of oysters here the minute we hit Franklin County. The Bloody Mary’s were spicy and salty. The deck overlooking Scipio Creek is so relaxing!

Definitely call before you go...or enjoy the walk to another restaurant if they are closed. It actually depends on the crowd.
