A recent lunch here was marred by painfully slow and inattentive service. While the food was good the slow service dimmed the quality of the experience. We were not alone in our despair. The table next to us waited 10 minutes after seating before anyone...More

We had outstanding service... Our waitress was awesome and a lot of fun. The environment was great. Clean. However, the jambalaya and pastas were bland. Two of us had the local fish on special and they said it was very good. Four out of six...More

We love this small and quaint town and always have lunch at the Owl Café. This year's visit was just as nice....I had their port and gator sausage over a grit cake while my wife had their shrimp. Service was good and food was fabulous.

I have never been disappointed with a meal at the Owl Cafe. The brunch on Sunday is especially delightful. One of my favorite choices is the Crab cake Benedict. Eggs are poached exactly right, crab cake is full of meat and the Hollandaise is spot-on....More

We were a party of 8 and everyone had a great meal...fried oysters, goat-cheese appetizer, meatballs over penne, chicken wrap, everything. The "special sauce" was very interesting and added a delicious flavor to the oyster po boy. We also really liked the local crafted beers.
