Drinks, appetizer and dinner were great and reasonably priced. Mateo is an awesome waiter! Late night reservation was taken with no problems. Simple, but nice and relaxing atmosphere. Cool elevator ride to the top. ;)

Friends were visiting while we were staying in the area for a month. Food was excellent. Beef tenderloin superb. Blue crap dip appetizer great. Their complimentary bread with dip excellent. Our server Daniel could not do enough for us. He totally enhanced our experience. We will be back.

We stopped in for lunch on a sunny day and ate outside upstairs. I had a fish taco special which was great, my wife enjoyed her sandwich. The waiter was there when we needed him even though no one else was outside with us. Came back with a friend a few days later for brunch. Since it was chilly we... More

While staying for 2 nights at Apalachicola, I wanted to find a restaurant that had a varied and affordable menu. The Owl Café delivered on both. I'm not a seafood lover and this little town is known for its oyster and seafood. The B&B where I stayed had local menus for the guests to review and recommended the Owl Café... More

Visited Apalachicola recently and happened to on the day of the Oyster Fest. After an afternoon visiting the booths we got reservations for the Owl early. The restaurant is located on the second floor of a gift shop and opens in the evenings at 5:30 p.m. We had an early reservation and were seated immediately at a table near a... More

Had an anniversary dinner here and it was outstanding. Our server, Mateo, was exceptional and our meals were prepared perfectly. Definitely worth checking out, a real treat.

I have heard great things about this restaurant, but this was our first visit. I won't be our last. I had linguini with mushrooms and spinach in a garlic olive oil with parmesan cheese. I added shrimp to my dish which is an option on the menu. It was fabulous. My husband had the grouper sandwich, and he loved it.... More

Oysters (I love them) are a major reason to visit Apalachicola, so my wife and I were there for a fourth time. This was our first time at the Owl, though. "If the oysters aren't big, we don't serve them," said the hostess. Ours were gigantic and delicious. A wonderful start to an excellent dining experience.
