I love raw oysters and these are the biggest and best. This is a friendly, casual little place to enjoy a good meal with friends. The view from the patio is stunning. You place your order at a counter, they give you a number and your meal is delivered to your table. Works well. I look forward to a return visit.

We had a few different things here on 2 visits and they were all so good. I highly recommend the crab and lobster bisque and the crab cakes!

I'm sure in the high season this place is packed. The outdoor seating has the best view of boat traffic up and down the creek. On our late February visit it had a decent crowd of diners and a handful of patrons with drinks and oysters on the outdoor patio, (which is pet friendly.) The ordering procedure is a bit tricky but the staff walks you through it and are very accommodating.

My husband rated his fried shrimp basket as excellent and said the shrimp were unusually large. Same for my peel & eat shrimp. Definitely jumbo sized. We shared a dozen steamed clams. Also good.

It's a flight up to the dining room but there is an elevator for those who prefer a ride.

We enjoyed our dining experience! The staff and food were of the highest quality. Beautiful setting, cozy atmosphere. Very casual.
We enjoyed the seafood gumbo! So rich and chock full of yummy goodies, a perfect blend! We loved the fish spread . It was FISH ! Not a bunch of fillers ...... Super delish! To top it all off homemade key lime pie, they have a wonderful recipe! Very authentic . If you Florida, you will love this wonderful restaurant!

Up The Creek continues to please me year after year. No doubt, they have the best oysters in town. If you don't like oysters, go somewhere else. Oh, we do have a veggie friend that enjoys their beans and rice.
