“They really know how to cook shrimp at this restaurant.”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

I had the steamed shrimp with heads on and Old Bay seasoning. The shrimp was moist, not dry at all. Another person in our party said it was the best shrimp we had all week. I also a taste of the gator and white bean soup. A little spicy but good. My husband had steamed clams and raw oysters.

“Back again for more!”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

We visited Apalach again in January and had to go back to Up the Creek...twice! The steamed shrimp are the best in town. Everything I've had there is great. The chef is very creative so you have interesting, very good menu options each time you go.

“Best steamed shrimp in the world.”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

This is my second trip to Up the Creek and they hit the mark on all points. Great food, the shrimp and the oysters were the best I've had. The beer was cold and the service was fast. The place was clean, the people were friendly, and the price is right. What more could you want from a place?
