Had the delicious crusted trout which they were able to accommodate for Gluten free, and the not too salty, but tastey etouffee. Attentive wait staff, with views of the creek and hummingbirds. Nice local wines too! Nice to visit a local spot away from the tourists in Sedona.

We enjoyed our anniversary at this local restaurant because it is a special place for us on a special occasion. There are windows along many of the tables that allow peaceful views of tree lined Oak Creek below. We especially enjoyed the ruby crusted trout dinner. mmmm goood. The staff are very friendly and attentive. The atmosphere is somehow quiet... More

I had a burger, asked for it pink and it wasn't. Also no seasoning at all on the meat. Pretty blah and not worth the price. My partner had the reuben and the meat was like it was dried it was so tough and chewy and not much of it. The service was great and the garlic fries were awesome,... More

We sat at the bar for drinks and an absolutely wonderful dinner. We had attempted to get reservations - they were booked, but we were happily welcomed at the bar. My husband had the rib-eye and I had the flat iron steak on a bed of delicious polenta! This is a must visit any time we will be in the... More

We made a reservation to have dinner at Up the Creek. When we got there we were seated in the far end of the restaurant. There were two large groups of diners at the other end of the room. There was also a crowd at the bar. It was very noisy and we could not even have a conversation because... More

Beautiful location and the food was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful in choosing our food. Located by Oak Creek, this setting is somewhat unique for Arizona. Creekside with lots of big beautifu trees. Indoor and outdoor sitting available.

This is a wonderful place, great food and a wonderful wine selection. The service is terrific and staff were very friendly. It's a little pricey but well worth it.

After traveling in a plane all morning to get to Arizona and then driving a couple of hours, we were starving. So glad we stopped. The food was excellent and the local brewed beer refreshing and good. We had a great view of the creek. Nothing fancy inside - just an old western building, though quaint, but the food was... More

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.
