“Fun,Fun,Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2014

Awesome place to eat. Casual attire. The crab claws are so very good. There is not a thing there that is not tasty. Wait staff is truly fun people. Be ready to share your table with others if your table is not full - great way to meet new people. We really liked this place.

“Tiny place with big taste”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014

We really enjoyed our lunch at Hole in the Wall. We were looking for a smaller lunch and this fit the bill perfectly. I had an interesting seafood casserole that came with a marinated salad - of which I ate every bite of :) My husband had the shrimp / oyster basket which he enjoyed as well. We lucked out and found the one and only open table inside with regular chair seats, which was a plus for me. Most seating here is found with bar stool style seats and with mobility issues that would be a bit difficult and uncomfortable.
A small outdoor seating area is found on the sidewalk out front. The location is great - downtown area on a corner. We agreed that we would make a return visit here if in the area again.

“The last stop was the best (by far)!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

This was our third night of raw oysters in Apalachicola and this one was the best by far. These are real Apalach oysters. We sat at the bar and the shucker set up the best dozen we've ever seen. Sweet and smooth. We joined them with tuna fish spread and boiled shrimp. It is an oyster bar and it sets the mark very high. Great conversation with the bar/wait staff.

“Eh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2014

I guess you need to just order oysters here. I I ordered the blue crab claws and found them mainly breading and greasy. My husband ordered the seafood casserole,thinking it would be, well, like a casserole. It looked and tasted like seafood flavored spam. Not impressed. With all the other fantastic places in Apalachicola, we won't be back.
