First time in Apalachicola and looking for a place for lunch. I am grateful that we found the Owl. The restaurant has a simple elegance about it. The staff were efficient and friendly. The food was exceptional. One of the best lunches I have had in a long time. I will be back.

Our family has traveled to Apalachicola, FL and nearby St. George Island for years. We enjoy the lifestyle, the area and the people of Apalachicola. One constant over all of these years has been the Owl Cafe. When we are planning to visit the area, thoughts of once again going to this fabulous restaurant is exciting. We have been going... More

A lot of stairs but there is an elevator. Loved the food and service! Everyone is pleasant and polite. The restaurant is nicely decorated and exceptionally clean. We go for Sunday Brunch every time we are in Apalachicola. It is always wonderful.

Were seated outside and the hostess took our drink order of two glasses of water. 15 mins later we caught the attention of a waitress since we still didn't have the water. She told us she didn't know we were there, no apology she left and brought back the water and menus. They had no oysters on the half shell... More

We found the Owl cafe when we stayed a night in Apalachicola and loved the place. The food was excellent - some of the best we have tasted in the USA and the service was friendly and welcoming.

We found the food to be just average, but the service and the restaurant were outstanding. I would go back, I think we just made the wrong menu choices.

Sunday brunch at the Owl Cafe has been a family favorite for years. Pleasant setting, courteous, helpful wait staff, excellent menu. Apalachicola oysters on the half shell are a delicacy any time of day. Crab cakes Benedict are perfectly prepared and presented. The restaurant was packed not quite to capacity when we arrived, though, and there was a long delay... More

As visitors to the area we were looking for a place with a bit of class where we could eat,drink and watch the football. We found it at The Owl. They have a fine selection of ales, local and others, which suited us as we really enjoy sampling local craft beers. The food menu was quite big - we chose... More
