This restaurant has an excellent location sitting on the river in the village of Vail. We heard about the great game meat they offered and thought we should give it a try and pair it with some excellent Carte Blanc Vineyards wine. We were blown away by the fantastic service and the unbelievable choices that the menu offered. Two of us decided to order the 3 rarest choices the menu offered and split them; Elk, Buffalo and Antelope. Each dish that we split was a portion for two and although overwhelmed by the portion size we happily conquered all three. Out of the hundreds of restaurants we have been to in the past year Up the Creek was in the top 5.
Each course was outstanding from appetizer to salad to dessert. Each game meat was prepared excellent, moist and cooked to perfection.
If you only have one choice for your main dish I would rate the buffalo first, then elk then antelope but they were all great!
We will definitely be back! Highly recommended!
