Stopped in the Owl Cafe for dinner. Found it a bit pricey for our liking so we just ordered Raw Oysters. They were indeed incredible. The restaurant was very nice and we will be back when we close on our land to celebrate.

I dined here several years ago and gave the place 5 stars then, but this week’s return was very disappointing. The first problem was the menu: the ones posted on TripAdvisor and outside the restaurant were 20% cheaper than the ones we were handed when...More
