We tried this eatery based on the recommendation of two townsfolk we met in the downtown. Most of the patrons were locals - always a good sign. between four of us we ordered lots of raw oysters, calamari, peel and eat shrimp and I was lucky enough to try the seafood gumbo (special of the day). Everything was delicious. The... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Apalachicola! We have been coming here for many years and recommend it to all as their diverse menu can please anyone's palate. The views alone are worth a visit, but once you order the "Southern Fella" oysters, you'll be hooked for life.

I have eaten at this restaurant 4 times in the past 3 years and it is amazingly consistent-both food and service. It is extremely family-friendly (yes, toddlers too) and the seating on the bay is exceptional. The prices are very reasonable; and the raw oysters are the best. This wonderful place is on our annual "to do" list.

Our favorite place to sit at the bar and enjoy oysters while looking over the bay. You can even bring your dog! Great service and low key atmosphere.

We were walking around the area's shops and wanted some oysters and although this place is a little off the beaten path it was worth it. Big, delicious oysters and a great view. We will come back and spend more time for sure.

Perfect Chill spot to try some local Seafood and enjoy the scenery too. They do Oysters here and have some Tap Brews too. Great prices, not fancy but very relaxing place, very decent prices too. Don't expect fine dinning here, but a great way to exp. the local flavors.

Food was good, waitresses attentive. We arrived well before dinner and hung out watching a game. While there we had their oysters on the half shell with cheese, butter and garnish, peppered fries, mussels, crab cake, blackened grouper, key lime pie and snicker brownie. Also wine and beer, lots of it, lol.

We enjoyed delicious grilled mahi at Up the Creek. The atmosphere is very casual with local decor and great views out to the fishing boat access to Apalachicola Bay.
