This town close to beach, all is casual dress. But the food and servers are the best. Very unique menu here. Order the Grouper Throat, you will not be disappointed.

We were greeted right away and seated. Ordered a margarita and it was awful. After ordering dinner it took approximately 45 minutes to get our meal and it was not busy. Husband's fried grouper throat was terribly overcooked but the chorizo Mac and cheese accompaniment was really good. My crab stuffed grouper was cooked nicely but the crab was overpowered... More

We had a garlic shrimp appetizer and the pecan crusted grouper. The shrimp was fresh and so delicious. The portion size was very generous. The grouper, while good, didn't quite meet expectations. The crust was a bit soggy and the jalapeno creama didn't bring enough heat for our taste. Service was excellent and the restaurant was clean.

Tamara's has a reasonably priced menu, good service, nice ambience and very fresh food. We only had lunch but it was very very fresh and nice salads. No frills, just good food and service when traveling through Appalachicola on the gulf coast.

Stopped in because the coffee shop next door was closed. Waitresses needed to decide who was taking orders and who was telling/listening what they did last night, Coffee was crap then the creamers were spoiled. We skipped the food and left.

My husband and I were very disappointed by our lunch entrees at this little cafe. I had Thai chicken (which was breaded) over rice with an extremely salty sauce. My husband had fish tacos, which he reported, were not very good (and he is a huge lover of fish tacos) and his side was also salty. Service was average, a... More

Went here with my family of five. Gluten free was not a problem so we were off to a good start! The fish tacos were the best I've ever had. Wow!!! Everyone else enjoyed their food as well. Great food and great service. I definitely recommend this place. We'll be going back for sure when we visit SGI next year!!!

I had the pancakes and they were amazing! The service was good and the food that other people had also looked very tasty. I would visit again if I was ever in the area again!

We asked a waitress at another restaurant for a recommendation, and she raved about Tamara. We stopped in for dinner, and the food was great. The black bean soup is one of the best I have ever had. If we had a week here, we would never be bored with the menu. Good service, too!
