Best fried seafood ever. Light and not greasy. Reasonable price, reasonable portions. Wait staff super friendly, nice efficient. Fun decor. So glad we went here. Excellent way to end our vacation. All family members ordered different and we all said excellent. Don't miss this restaurant.

The oysters were shucked as they were ordered and very fresh. The service was immediate. Raw, steamed, and Oysters Rockefeller were our favorites. Local flavor and charm not to be missed.

The Hole in the Wall is almost that. It is a very small place, but is very well decorated with sea shells and a wall of hats behind the bar. The seating arrangement is a bit odd with three high tables permanently attached to wall and maybe a couple more regular tables for 4 and several bar stools. We had a party of 6 and shared a table with another couple. It was OK with us but it may have been overwhelming for them.

The menu is mainly seafood and oysters. A good selection of bottled beers is available. Soft drinks are by the can so no refills.

They know how to fry seafood. It is not greasy but very light and breaded just right. Our table had grouper, shrimp, chicken, and oysters combo baskets which comes with fries and a couple of hush puppies. A truly enjoyable meal.

You definitely need to visit this place if in Apalachicola.

I had given up on the poor quality of food on St.George Island. The reviews and the food on the island are poor. So far as I know and can discern from the crab claw shortage restaurants like Blue Parrot on SGI still use Cisco foods... Where else would they get Alaskan snow crab local. Ha.

So we explored Apalachicola restaurants and the Hole in the Wall was by far higher quality for both food and service. The prices were fair too. The only down side is the seating is primarily at the oyster bar. They have 4 large tables for dining in.

We had fried shrimp and grouper that was very well cooked, golden brown and yummy. My mom had the gumbo and it was spot on. And while I don't eat oysters I was very impressed with the fresh quality observed in all the food served.

Come in early or late to get a table without wait... Otherwise it is worth the wait. Be respectful of others and leave when you are done.
