They almost doubled their prices this year. Of course the location is the best in town but the food needs to improve and the decor could use an update.

Up the Creek in Vail village has the most delicious food in Vail. We ski a week each December in Vail and have tried all the up scale restaurants at least once. Consistently Up the Creek provides the tastiest food at a fair price. I am especially addicted to their lamb rack.

Knowledgeable staff. Great service. Great food. Fun atmosphere. As memorable as the Vail ski hill. Reservations required. Ask if they have the prix fixe for $35.

Great salads and sandwiches right on the banks of Gore Creek--great way to spend time in Vail Village.

We just got back from a quick weekend trip to Vail. "Vail" and "budget" are not two words normally used in the same sentance, but that was our goal. We skipped Up-The-Creek for dinner and went back for a much more reasonably priced lunch on our second day. We had tortilla soup and fish tacos. Both were excellent. The tortilla soup was hand-poured by our server over chicken and tortilla chips and made a nice presentation at our table. It was citrusy to the point of being tart, but had great flavor and was unique for tortilla soup. The fish tacos were perfectly cooked and had great blackening flavor.

Up the Creek's location and view are probably the best in Vail...overlooking a mountain stream. That, combined with tasty food, make this place a no-brainer for a casual lunch. Two thumbs up!
