We ate here twice; once for lunch and then for dinner on our last night of vacation at St George Island. We really loved it. Our servers both times were great! At the lunch visit, we ordered a cup of crab dip with pita chips and it was so great, we ordered it again when we came back for dinner.... More

Great place to dine and it is obvious why the Owl is rated #1 in the area. The menu has much to offer for all but there are also nightly specials. Kudo's to the owner of this establshment, managers, chef's, wait staff and all others working here. Fabulous food and great service. We were vacationers at St. George and after... More

The Owl Café in Apalachicola is now one of our favorites! I had the chicken marsala while my husband had the snapper and they were both great. Poppy seed dressing on my salad was also delicious. Our waitress was great. It was a very good dining experience and one that we will do again when we return to Apalachicola! Don't... More

Well trained waitstaff. All staff (Busser & Bartender) assisted in refilling water and clearing empty plates. A true team atmosphere. Not the "not my section" attitude that is rampant all over the coast. Food was speedy and served nice and hot. All food was tasty and as ordered. We went to the new Oyster City Brewing Company the next day... More

Lovely change of pace from fried "vacation" food. Everything was fresh and homemade, including dressings and bread. The best meal I've had in Apalachicola to date!

My family and I went here for lunch and it was just fabulous! The customer service we received was outstanding (on top of refills which is a must for me)! My mother and I shared their shrimp tacos, came with two tacos and we choose fries, and we ordered a second serving of fries, and we were both impressed! The... More

My family (wife and two small children under 8) stopped here for lunch. We were immediately seated and our waitress was quick to introduce herself, take our drink orders, and provide some crayons for the kids to color the table cover (paper cover over a table cloth). Our appetizer, the crab dip, was superb. The lunch portions were just right... More
