Great location. Ambiance was to be desired. Food was average. Prices were more than expected for average food.

Oysters were superb, all of them,raw, baked, and fried. Service was friendly and excellent. the visit to Papa Joe's was definitely a highlight to the Apalachicola area. I'll absolutely visit again!

“Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

My husband, daughter, son-in-law and I ate here in early November and really enjoyed it. The oysters baked with different toppings were served hot and delicious. The fried shrimp were fried perfectly and the basket was a generous serving. Food was hot and fresh and beer was cold -- what more can you ask? The service was prompt and friendly. Don't eat here for a fine dining experience, eat here for good fresh seafood and a great view.

“Delicious but overpriced”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012 via mobile

Oysters were outstanding. Crab quesadillas very good. Oyster stew a bit thin. Oysters very fairly priced. Appetizers and beer way overpriced. Atmosphere a bit too cafeteria. For this price, either fine fining or a dump with character worthy of Popeye. Aaa argh.

Nothing fancy ,but good oysters.
If you don't like highschool cafeteria style seating and chairs ,move to the bar.
Great oysters at great prices .go again in a heartbeat.
