My wife and I met the rest of her family here for a dinner while all of us were vacationing on St. George Island. In spite of the large number of folks in our party, about 12, we were seated promptly with our reservations and served very quickly. I ordered a special of the night, snapper and scallops broiled because... More

One of my favorite restaurants of all time. After over 15 visits in the last 7 years the service is top notch and the food is easily comparable to "big city" 5 star restaurant. It is a must go if you are within 45 minutes of it on vacation!

My husband and I had our anniversary dinner at Owl cafe and enjoyed it very much, service was good, food was very good. Steak melted in my mouth. Hubby got snapper and scallop special and it was delicious. They even let me pay for my dessert in advance, go walk around town and then come back and pick it up... More

The food and service is wonderful. Very pleasant atmosphere, we ate here twice in a week, we loved it so much. I had the grouper sandwich both times, fantastic! Everyone in our party of 5 loved this place. Don't miss this gem!

The Owl cafe came highly recommended, but after a long drive we were not up to a full meal. We had stopped in at their Tap Room-around the corner-- for a couple craft draft beers that afternnon and noticed they had a really different and interesting menu. So we decided to return for dinner. A reasonably priced bottle of Pinot... More

We were only in town one day and picked Owl Cafe for dinner. Started with Apalachicola oysters which were off-season, but delicious anyway (could have been a hair more iced down though) then moved to the special - an Amberjack with a delicious tomato, onion, caper topping. Never had Amerjack before, but I'm always up for an adventure. Was really... More

My wife and I are doing a beach town trip through Florida and we have had a lot of good seafood. When we arrived in Apalachicola, the Owl Cafe was highly recommended. Since we had fried oysters for lunch (the signature mollusk of the region), we opted for something else for dinner. I had amberjack and my wife had a... More
