We had a reservation at Up the Creek on a busy night and as soon as we entered, our server offered us a choice of two tables. One was centrally located and had a fine view of the creek, but was reserved for regular patrons in just over an hour. Another table was at the far end of the dining... More

This is a hstoric restaurant and bar now renamed. The wonderful views of Oak Creek remain but the food and ambience are better. In fact this was the best of the three restaurants we ate at in the Sedona/Verde Valley area, and the least expensive.

This is a restaurant we had been intending to visit for quite awhile. It is small, and has a rustic look dining room with adjoining full bar. The focal point of the dining space is a window that stretches across the room and down the hall, which overlooks Oak Creek. There are hummingbird feeders just beyond the windows, and they... More

Up the Creek wine tasting room is literally Up the creek from Oak Creek river! They had a number of different Arizona wines to taste, most all of them local, and especially DA Ranch wines which happens to be an estate only wine company that grow their grapes right behind this restaurant and wine tasting room.! The food was awesome.... 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.
