We decided not to eat in our hotel restaurant but to look for a restaurant at the water front. Up the creek is the place to go. They serve fish, straight and simple. Well cooked. And oysters, in many varieties. Try to get a table...More

A cup of seafood gumbo is $6.99!!! It is about 1/2 cup of food. The broth looks like muddy water. The fried shrimp was $16.99 for 10. It came with hush puppies and a generous Serving of French fries.

This place is great for on-the-water dining. 180 degree view of the Apalachicola River and local wildlife. The food is pretty good. Excellent fried grouper and conch fritters. Fries are disappointing. Pina Colada is very disappointing. Friendly staff and quick service. Thank you! Will definitely...More

We had a party of 8 ( 4 adults and 4 children ) we all enjoyed our food except the appetizers of crab cakes. It was 7.99 for one cake and ended up being very fishy. That was the only thing we didn't like. The...More

Definitely call before you go...or enjoy the walk to another restaurant if they are closed. It actually depends on the crowd.
