“Cute place, some food good, some "eh"”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Great cajun omelet for breakfast, they'll even grill a dozen oysters to put in for an extra $1. Service is very slow. Coffee served in paper cups (YUCK!). The service is very, very slow. But, if you're on vacation, or just there to relax, it's okay. Grits were lukewarm every morning, and when we asked for 'hot grits' with breakfast.... they were lukewarm. Owner is very pleasant. Great memorabilia all around, so the wait for food becomes more tolerable.

“Great Breakfast joint, friendly service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2012

They had staple southern breakfast options, and it is located 30 seconds from the beach, which is nice so you can go for a walk after your meal....

“2 Owls lived up to its reputation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2012

Like many before us, we thought the place was called "2 Owls." We'd asked in town for a good place to eat dinner, and that's what we heard. 2 Als at the Beach looks and feels like an "Old Florida" kind of place. It has an old-time diner style with non-matching tables and chairs. The owner and wait staff could not be more welcoming and friendly and the food was very good. My husband enjoyed the grouper special and I had a very nice, very big hamburger.

“Funky place for breakfasts”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2012

We only had breakfasts at 2 Als, as part of our "bed and breakfast" rate at the Old Carrabelle Hotel, so we can't speak for other meals. 2 Als is a funky, homey, no-pretensions joint that serves good breakfasts of the kind you'd expect - eggs and meats and taters and grits served a bunch of ways. Friendly staff. Just wish they'd serve on real plates, with real cups and glassware, but no place in Carrabelle did.
