Amazing food and people

We had a tasting in the restaurant for our reception and then had them cater our reception. The food is outstanding. 5 stars are given b/c that's the max. Would give more if I could. I now like caprese salad b/c of them!

I had the fresh tomato soup with grilled cheese special and my partner had a beef enchilida. Soup was quiter good, but the grilled chees was served on dry bread - no butter for the grilled side or anything - on white bread. Enchilida was quite good and generous. There are numerous restaurants in town and I don't think they'd... More

There were mixed reviews so we were a little hesitant. We were pleasantly surprised. If you are looking for an all you can eat get stuffed kind of place then no this probably isn't the place for you. If you are looking for fresh flavorful food then look no further. Definitely save room for desert.

The small town of Apalachicola Florida on Florida's Forgotten Coast is a true jewel for travelers. Tamara's is located right on the corner of downtown and is a must eat place for those that love fresh fish. Located in an old store that use to be the A & P grocery and then a 5 and 10 many years ago... More

This was our first trip to Tamara's, prompted by a $10 Restaurant.com coupon. It was a good experience, comfortable seating, good service and good food. my wife had the pork sliders and was surprised to find they were more 'sandwich' sized, loaded with pulled pork and coleslaw. I had the grilled mahi sandwich, which was on the thin side but... More

After a few days of oyster omlette's, oysters on the half shell, oyster po boys... I was more than ready to eat anything that wasn't seafood. That is very hard to find in Apalachicola. We stumbled across Tamara's and they have their menu outside. While mostly seafood I was excited to see a Frenched Pork chop on their specials. The... More

Terrific flounder tacos, wonderful if you are a single traveler and want to sit at the bar and listen to the local entertainment.

...but we would have been okay with a slightly smaller portion and a little more attention to flavor. The scallop papillote special was attractive, and the scallops were juicy, but it needed a bit of oomph. The oyster stew was rich and delicious, and the fried oysters had just the right dusting of cracker meal.

This place, while maybe they could use some improvements in their service, was an overall pleasant and satisfying dining experience for my husband and I. The special, a crayfish and mahi mahi pasta, was so good!! Our server seemed a little lacking in knowledge of the menu (for example, when we asked about beers, she commented that she didn't drink...

My wife and I visited Apalachicola a couple of times during our visit to St. Joseph Peninsula State Park. We ate lunch there and were pleased with the variety of offerings. The wait staff was attentive and the meal prince was reasonable. We'll definitely be back.
