After enjoying our visit here 2 years ago, we decided to eat here again on our trip to St. George Island. The service was good, but I am disappointed to say that my fried oysters resembled lava rocks and were not even hot, but just luke warm. My husband was very disappointed with his entree also. This is a very... More

Came in for brunch with the family while visiting SGI. Mimosa was awesome and the food was even better. The crab cakes benedict was perfect. Waffles are huge! Monte Cristo was just average. The restaurant is extremely nice. There is a little shop downstairs if you want to browse while waiting for a table. Dining is upstairs.

We ate here on our vacation to St. George Island and it is a must. I had the Grilled Swordfish and it was the best fish I have EVER had. We had a fairly large group and service was still good with our server Mateo. I also had the Navy Bean Soup appetizer which I really liked (and need to... More

We had an excellent dinner in a very romantic setting. The restaurant has indoor rooms, but I recommend the terrace upstairs. You have a view on the countryside. The servise is very attentive, the oysters amongst the best we had in this holiday. Fish was very good too, the price a little above the average. Forgiven!

We were expecting a much more casual experience when we chose a cafe, but we were delighted with our experience. The waitstaff was professional and friendly. The menu was varied, and the food delicious.

Food was okay, nothing outstanding. Desserts were better than dinner. Service was very poor. Our waiter wrote an order incorrectly, and acted as if he were bothered when corrected. He seemed put-upon when serving us and telling off the menu specialties. Food and service has gotten worse here. The Tap Room is better.

We had an amazing dinner at the Owl Cafe! We would definitely return. Great food and great service! It's pricey, but it's worth it. The lemon drop martini was yummy and the snapper was perfect !

Was a busy night. Service was good in spite of the crowd. The kitchen just did not deliver like the service did. Appetizer and main arrived both at same time. Appetizer had wrong dressing. The Jambalya was poor...no rice and the sauce was just bad. I think they probably can do better in the kitchen. But expensive for a very... More

Best restaurant in town for consistency, service and variety. Lunch specials are surprisingly great & fresh. Somewhat pricey.
