This evening, at the Owl Cafe Tap Room, my wife and I celebrated her birthday, with the most wonderful meal we've had in years! Think about this, confit de canard sur frits..... congeled duck fat over french fries..... my friends, you must taste this to believe it!! So delicious! Not to diminish the crab dip, the delicious fresh oysters, and... More

The only resturant we have found in the area with white table cloths, real plates, reasonable prices, and great food. They were closed last week so we had visited their partner the Tap Room which was good so we decided to try the Owl. We ordered pastas which were about $14 each and came with homemade bread and huge side... More

This is the upstairs restaurant for the Tap Room at the Owl Café. See my review on that and you will know about this. If in Apalachicola, don't miss it. This is the kind of place that fancy ladies on yachts go for their mixed green salad and friend oysters and their husbands zone out on a good, cool tall... More

The Owl Cafe never disappoints in food or service. Our last lunch their was interesting twist on local seafood served by a very capable waiter with a nice view of the river.

We ate in the Owl Bar as the restaurant was closed for renovations. It's the more laid back side apparently. They serve 13 Mile Oysters. I don't know why they are special but OMG they are delicious. We ordered them baked with a light layer of parmesan. I fully expect to go back and try them raw. Skip the crab... More

November may be off season, but we were there on a warm Saturday in November and the service and food was very good. The oyster po' boy with horseradish sauce was cooked just right and the beer from the new brewery washed it down easily. The prices were what I would expect ($54 for the 3 of us including 2... More

This restaurant is worth a visit. I spent a long weekend in Apalachicola and enjoyed two excellent meals at the Owl Cafe. The food is very good, fresh, skillfully prepared and presented. The service was friendly and efficient.

All the food was well prepared and tasty, but management needs to go back to school. We had reservations for 6:30 and were seated at 7. Others who came in after us were directed to the Tap Room, where we thought they were waiting and having a drink. Unfortunately, the kitchen continued to serve food to that room and could... More
