Daughter and I had lunch on lovely outside patio. The river was running high and the day was beautiful! Kid ordered tortilla soup with avocado and it was delicious with lots of chicken and veggies! I had burger with side salad and it was also very good! Wait staff was great, too! Will be back for sure!

Long-time Vail location. Outside tables right on Gore Creek. Good soups and sandwiches. I had the BLT - big sandwich, 3 tomato slices on each 1/2. Others had the burger, the buffalo pastrami, and the turkey w/brie. All well presented. Friendly, capable staff.

Every year, I go to Vail for a conference. Every year, we eat at Up the Creek. Every year, the food is absolutely superb! You must try their trout - absolutely heavenly!

Took a while to find it but table by the creek was worth the search. Really enjoyed the grilled turkey sandwich with truffle fries. Fish tacos were excellent. Lovely setting, plus excellent service.

We highly recommend this restaurant. It is located in the heart of Vail Village on the river. I ordered the elk tenderloin which was exquisite! Perfectly cooked and served with a lovely berry sauce. My husband had the beef short rib also served with a creative and delicious sauce. The salads were fresh, crisp and lightly dressed- perfect! Our waitress was friendly and efficient. All in all a very pleasant experience. We would definitely go back.
