“Simple, rustic, terrific view, terrific service, terrific food”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

Doesn't necessarily have the aesthetic appeal when you see the outside. However, it is a nice change from the busy-ness and crowded atmosphere of other seafood restaurants in the panhandle. If you sit outside, the view is absolutely incredible....Apalachicola Bay...we had a terrific breeze. Service was wonderful. Very laid back atmosphere. Be prepared when you order shrimp that it is the full body...you need to remove the head (which is easily done)...just providing that due to many people never having it served in that fashion. I would highly recommend for couples or families. A great experience.

“Generous portions, good food”
Reviewed June 30, 2013

The parmesan oysters were great, the shrimp basket was superb with a light unique and very flavorful batter on extra large plentiful shrimp. The hamburger was excellent. The alligator burgers were ok, it was hard to taste the alligator with the mix-ins. There sweet potato fries were wonderful.

“Fresh Seafood, Beautiful View”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

I've visited Apalachicola (more specifically St. George Island) for 13 years. This was my first visit to Up the Creek Raw Bar. Far better than the other restaurant we frequented . Went for lunch... I had the Crab Cakes (which were very good) and my husband the Conch Cakes (which he thought were better than my Crab Cakes). He also had a clam appetizer. All were above average. Ate on the deck overlooking the marsh. The deck is dog friendly, although there were no 4 legged friends dining during our visit. I'll definitely go again.
