Wonderful food and great service.

We always try to visit Owl Cafe when we do our annual beach trek to St. George Island. The food is always good, and the seafood eaters are particularly pleased with menu choices. Service is excellent. Can't do any better in Apalachicola.

The first thing is, almost ALL other restaurants in Apalachicola close at 9 PM throughout the week; THIS ONE stays open until 10 PM & seats you until 10 PM. The only reason this is as important as the great food & service they offer is because if you try to eat almost anywhere else in Apalachicola by 8:50 PM... More

I reserved a table two weeks in advance at this renown restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. We were promised a window table which was appreciated after travelling two days to reach Appalachicola. When we checked in with Jackie who assigns tables, she directed us to a small table in the back of the restaurant next to a large and rather... More

Everyone enjoyed their seafood dinners. We agreed to sample each others meals, but my daughter loved her salmon so much she wouldn't share! The visit to the Owl would have been better if we didn't spend as much on the meal. The roof top seating was fun to have dinner on, but avoid the sunset time as the mosquitoes were... More

This was our first time trying the Owl Cafe. We went for lunch and had to wait for about 30 mins to be seated. Which was fine, bc we browsed the gift shop downstairs while waiting. My husband loves sea food and I am allergic to seafood so we always have to go somewhere that has a good choice for... More

Came here with my husband's family for dinner. Had been to the tap room the day before and really enjoyed it so was excited to try the more formal dinner side. Started with a dirty martini which was not the best. Apparently they don't have a bartender on staff. The wait staff makes the drinks for their own table. Got... More

Our family had lunch here and everyone really enjoyed it. The food was very good, and we loved that they served beer from the Oyster City Brewery across the street. The service was pretty slow, which was the only downside here. We did have a group of 13 however. I'd definitely recommend this to everyone as it was one of... More

I had never visited the Owl Cafe in many years of visiting the area and good review we gave it a try. First off I was surprised that the dining area is on the second floor and as such has no historic charm like the exterior and first floor. The dining area was could of been in any Holiday Inn...

Great food and very good service. We both had the flounder with pancetta and it was excellent. I recommend trying the creamy horseradish dressing for you sald.

I was not as impressed as other reviews. Our wait for food was long. Food was ok but nothing special really. Atmosphere was set up as a home with different rooms for dining. Seemed more like a place for ladies to have lunch than for families, although there were several families there. Tables were very close together. Our guys would... More
