“It's a bar...with bar food.”
Reviewed November 22, 2012

We always want to try new places so based on recent reviews, we decided to have dinner at the Up the Creek Pub. Several reviewers commented on how good the pulled pork sandwich was, so armed with this info, that's what I ordered. Perhaps during busy season, this is a good sandwich, however, mine on that cold November evening was dry and "crunchy". In all fairness the sauce was good and I used plenty to make my dry sandwich edible. My husband's $15.99 fried shrimp was un-memorable. No views to be had as this was cold November Service was friendly and fast. Wine was cheap and agin, to be fair, this is more of a beer place. Perhaps this is more of a formica table lunch place but I feel like I wasted a dinner there.

“who needs a paddle?”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

I hesitate to write this because, do we really want a lot of people discovering this place? It's out of the way and not fancy. The view is fabulous. There are two big reasons why I really like it: 1. Happy Hour is from 4 to 7. On the Creek, an hour is 180 minutes; island time! Half price drinks. Gotta love that. Cheap drinks are not the norm on the island. And the margaritas are great. 2. You can bring your dog to dinner with you. I love a place that welcomes dogs. You can just sit there on the deck with Fido sharing a burger but not the margarita. He has to buy his own.

Off the beaten path, a great place to relax and enjoy the beauty of Broad Creek. Food is excellent. Staff is the best.

“Excellent food and deck”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Loved the buffalo shrimp! Our chicken wrap was also really good. Service was exceptional. It was relaxing to look out over the marsh and watch the birds and the marina activity. It was also fun to listen to the excited (muffled) screams of the zipliners in the distance. We definitely plan to return to Up the Creek next year.

“Hidden lil gem! Do this after sip-lining!”
Reviewed September 7, 2012

We discovered this after doing the ZipLine Hilton Head and really enjoyed the comaraderie with the staff and patrons. Although we didn't eat, we heard people mention that the food was delicious! Get the "dip" and the "shrimp". This is a quaint place with a great water view.
