Great place for a meal. Sevice and food was above expectation. Extensive wine and craft beer list. The decor and cleanliness were emmediately apparent. A good choice for lunch or dinner.

Fresh oysters, but somehow "citrus, ginger" topping equates to runny tomato, basil salsa. They ran out of several menu items before and after our order, so I assume this topping bate and switch was part of the deal. House made green garlic ranch was very bland. A bottle off the Piggly Wiggly shelf would have had a better chance at... More

In 5 years of vacationing on the forgotten coast and eating plenty of mediocre to worse meals, I am now ashamed to admit that this was our first visit to Owl Cafe in Apalachicola! We were greeting warmly and seated on time for our 7:00 reservation. The restaurant was full of diners! Dress is comfortable and the walls are decorated... More

Our first meal on a mother/daughter weekend and it set the bar incredibly high for everything that followed. Luckily, in a foodie town like Apalachicola, there's lots of great options, but The Owl stands out in the crowd. We started with the homemade bruschetta topped with fresh chopped tomatoes, olive oil, and feta. Thankfully, there was an even number of... More

The crab dip was a strange consistency and tasted like something from Taco Bell. Don't order.....The chef was getting a little too ambitious.....

My husband and I went into Apalachicola for a lunch date while staying on St. George Island. We drove around town, trying to decide where to have lunch, and since I dined at the wonderful Tamara's a couple of days earlier, we decided on The Owl Cafe. I will be raving about this meal for a long time. With a... More

Where can you have exquisite and creative brunch dishes in such as small town? This restaurant is the one. My favorite is the crab cakes benedict. Eggs benedict with good hollandaise sauce is good enough by itself but over a crab cake, even better. The cost is remarkably low for such good food choices. The dinner and lunch here are... More
