Tamara's is a great place but lunch and dinner. It offers fresh, authentic food, has a great wine list and has the friendliest people working there. A funky atmosphere adds to the mood of this restaurant. If you go for lunch you have to try the crab cake quesadilla and black bean soup - homemade everyday.

Spent New Years in Panama City Beach, on the way home we stopped at Tamara's. Nice place, good lunch menu and it set us up for the ride home.

Tamara's is our go-to spot on our month long vacation at SGI each year. The daily creative specials surprise and delight. Love the Tabasco Flounder with Chorizo Mac, the Grouper Cheeks, Softshell Crab Sandwich is crisp and tasty, and if we look to the menu, the Sizzlin' Snapper and Tuna Filet are among the faves! Just to name a few... More

A sunny day in January, travelling with the dog, and Tamara's has two tables outside so we stopped for lunch. One of the best seafood chowders that I have tasted, served in a sourdough bread bowl and the fresh snapper was grilled and seasoned to perfection, served with grilled asparagus and saffron rice. Definitely worth a visit. The servers were... More

Stopped in Apalachicola for lunch because it it looked a nice place and chose to have lunch at Tamara's. Glad we stopped and chose Tamara's as lunch was really good. My shrimp quesidilla was stuffed full of jumbo shrimp/onion/tomato and had the right 'kick' to it. My wife's blackened chicken sandwich was also very good. Wrapped it all up with... More

Had a chicken quesadilla that was ample along with chips and salsa. Husband had fresh grilled Mahi over fresh spinach and veggies with a light citrus dressing. He was a fan! Noticed the burger on the table next to us. It looked fresh and delicious. Service was good and there were numerous and varied daily specials to choose from.

My husband loved the seafood pasta that he ordered but my crab cake sandwich didn't have much flavor. Our server was nice but wasn't that quick with drink refills. Overall, it was okay and we would probably go back but I would definitely try something different.

Nice, quiet atmosphere and GREAT food. Don't miss this one! Everything we tried was absolutely wonderful. A little pricy for the area, but well worth it!
