It's hard to go wrong with oysters from the Apalachicola Bay which means "fresh" and delicious! Add cold beer, friendly atmosphere, a river view and your dog (welcomed w/a water bowl no less), and you have a very pleasant late afternoon. I'm sure they offer other things that are probably quite nice... but this is oyster country and for oyster people it doesn't get a whold lot better than this.

SO SO SO SO SO SOOOOOOO GOOD!!!!!!!!! I ate there twice in one week after friends introduced it to us. We loved it! I would recomcnd it to anybody that wants a good lunch or dinner. The Peel-n-Eat shrimp was PERFECT, and so juicy. This is the best place in Apalachicola for sure! And be sure to get an order of sweet potato fries. If your in A-town you must go here

Pet friendly!!! Closes at 9. Just what you would expect for casual dining on the river. Good view not over priced. Food is ok but best served with beer which is why it tasted so salty.

The food ordering system is a little quirky. Most all food is fried, ugh. The salad bar was less than inviting. The saving grace were the oysters on the half shell, they were the least expensive than anywhere else. Go here for a drink and oysters then go elsewher to eat.

Sissy, one of staff is wonderful and makes you feel great. The entire staff was friendly and always checked to make sure you had what you needed. The food was good for the most part, but the snow crab was rubbery and over cooked.
