Up the Creek
We love the cozy, rustic atmosphere of this restaurant, which is located above Oak Creek. (If you’re lucky, you’ll snag a table by one of the windows.) The eclectic menu offers everything from bar food (the Cowboy Caviar is a favorite) and burgers, to Louisiana Étouffée and Flat Iron Steak. The Grilled Polenta Cake with fresh spinach, tomato, mushrooms, Kalamata olives, capers and parmesan is a great vegetarian option. We also love the inspired Lavender Chicken served with savory bread pudding, pomegranate beurre rouge and the daily vegetable. Dessert is all about the Buttermilk Pie. Open Wednesday through Sunday, 11 a.m. until close, for lunch and dinner. MC, Visa, AmEx, Disc • 1975 N. Page Springs Road (928-634-9954) (Moderate to Very Expensive)
