Awesome Crab Cakes

This was recommended by a clothing shop owner. I had the Twin Peaks salad (chicken salad / tuna salad) while my wife had the crab cake salad. Both were great but the crab cake was huge & phenomenal. I liked that the chicken & tuna salad were seasoned differently & had 2 different tastes. The... read more

We liked it so much we ate there 2 nights in a row. The second night we had a very rude waitress. Its a shame as a server can really change the dynamics of your dining experience. I hope for the establishments sake she doesn't deter others from going back.

Tamara's black bean soup was great and the grouper cheeks were pretty good. The fried oysters were yummy! The waitress was friendly and kind. The paella was a disappointment. Very little flavor, just a big plate of rice with a little seafood on top. The steak was good after being sent back to the kitchen for being over cooked. My... More

While the food was good, I could not say it was excellent. The ambiance was fine, the welcome warm, but the service was terrible. We were a large party of 13, we did have reservations. Once our waitress had our order, seems we were forgotten. Some of our drinks never arrived, some orders were mixed up, we could not even... More

You can't miss with the warm and friendly service in this cozy downtown Apalachicola restaurant. The decor and menu is different that most anything you'll excperience on the gulf coast...almost a vacation from your vacation. The menu features a nice blend of choices - seafood if you want or meat and chicken, plus what looked like some good vegetarian selections.... More

Tamara's has a great location along the busy business district of Apalachicola. Atmosphere is refined, calm, even a bit elegant. The food has a South American flare that makes it different. That said, the food was not extraordinary and a tad under seasoned for my taste. We might go back but there are better options nearby. We want to try... More
