Sunday brunch: Eggs Benedict over Crab Cakes and Grits. Verdict: Eggs were over poached, sauce tasted like it was from a package. Crab cakes were good, grits were great, Bloody Mary the best part. Family oriented, a little loud. Service was very good. Might return, might not.

It had been several years since our last dining experience at the Owl Cafe (our last one not being such a great experience), but we gave it another try this year---and we are so glad we did--all 6 of us had a delicious dinner and a great experience overall. The food was fresh and well-prepared and the service this year... More

Do not overlook the Owl Cafe. Locals told us to go to this restaurant and said it was consistently the best in town. My husband and I have been to many a fine restaurant over the years, but the Owl Cafe had fantastic service, and incredible food and presentation. The wine list is large and very reasonable. We both ordered... More

Great place for a casual lunch. The Apalachicola oyster PoBoy was outstanding and the shrimp pasta was delicious. The wait staff was friendly and the prices were fair.

Nice room, great ambiance, and one of the larger restaurants in Apalachacola. But the food is marginal, and service was very slow despite the place being empty. Fried shrimp was bland, burger Unremarkable

Lunched here on our first day in the area - upstairs on the porch. Not only was the weather perfect, but the food too. Shrimp/crab salad on very fresh greens was outstanding. Lots of fresh meat and no mayo detected, but a light toss of sour cream and dill. Perfect! Fried oysters on fresh greens - again wonderfully prepared and... More

We always love the Owl and Saturday night dinner was no exception. We were with another couple; the husband had today's catch, it looked awesome, 2 orders of the special which was fish with a large scallop-pretty delectable and my husband had their fried oysters, which are served with a horseradish dressing. The Green Garlic dressing for the salad is... More

We had a wonderful lunch and I ordered a dish with shrimp and scallops with pasta. They do not offer this dish on the dinner menu but if you are here for lunch, order this and you should really enjoy it.
