We are here our first night on our visit. It was a nice night and we sat out on the balcony. I had oysters and crab cake. Everything was good but I really hate onions so I didn't enjoy the crab cake but my husband thought it was delicious. He had the special of the night with a fresh fish... More

Love this place. Have eaten at their sister restaurant many times but never walked up the stairs. I've been missing out. The beehive drink is fantastic. Had the grouper special and it was delicious! Have learned to get specials at restaurants and only problem is I may never get this again. Risotto was perfect. Only wish they had something tiny... More

Yes, I have visited many great restaurants in Apalachicola. Owl Cafe (up stairs) is a very nice restaurant, more upscale but you don't have to dress up for it. Great menu, my grouper was delish. Even the veg side and potatoes were awesome. The chocolate mous-ish dessert with caramel and chocolate sauce - are you even kidding me? If you... More

Had a great lunch at the Owl. We have never been disappointed here. Great service, fresh, tasty food well presented. Great setting. Even the iced tea was good. I had the chef salad, (special for the day) and my husband had Grandmas wrap. Too full for desserts, but they sounded fabulous. Don't miss this place for lunch, dinner or Sunday... More

We were visiting St George Island and decided to go into town for lunch. We had heard great reviews for The Owl Cafe and thought we would give it a try. It was quite busy and even at 1:40 we had a 20 minute wait before being seated. Our server was Maggie who was pleasant and promptly took our orders... More

The seafood for lunch is great. The prices reasonable for what you get. They have a full bar with many speciality drinks. The cafe is in a historic building on the second floor with windows on all four sides overlooking the historic town.

On Valentine's Day my husband took me to The Owl which is about an hour and forty-five minute drive from Panama City Beach. We asked for a window table and were delighted to be seated at a window overlooking a cast iron balcony and a "secret garden" below. Lacey, our server, was most attentive and answered our questions with recommendations... More

Gracious service in a gracious atmosphere. Here's a restaurant that got it right every step of the way, Perfectly prepared mixed drinks, thick crusted warm bread with delicious oil and parmesan, excellent soup, nice salad, and absolutely exceptional entrées. Dining companions had three-tail with crab, and crab cakes; I had the black grouper. All were beautifully prepared. Wait staff was... More
