Loved this place! We had the truffle fries, crab cake and trout. Nice place to spend some time along the creek.

We were fortunate to join a group that deserves the restaurant for an evening. The food was excellent and the way staff exceptional.

We've been to this restaurant on several occasions and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent, and if you're lucky enough to get a table outside along the creek, it will be a very special experience.

The balcony looked so lovely, we stopped in for a drink while we were exploring Vail. Casual, friendly service. Menu looked decent as well.

Up the Creek is one of our favorites in Vail, and me and my brothers love their non-alcoholic cocktails. The truffle fries are delicious, and I love their New York strip steak. Their sorbet was a hit at our table as well their hot chocolate.

So sorry, but we didn't request any information on corkage fee. We enjoyed a glass of white wine from the restaurants wine list.
