“Grilled Oyster Tacos”
Reviewed November 30, 2012

Although we are locals, it has been a long time since we have eaten at the Boss. We stopped in for an early lunch and ordered the grilled oyster tacos. They were fantastic! we liked them so much that we tried to duplicate the dish at home. Ours we not nearly as tasty.

When you are in Apalachicola stop in and try them out.

“Great atmosphere”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

Great atmosphere and oysters at Boss Oysters! Papa Joe's has great oysters too (and better horseradish) but a little to quiet.

“Good seafood in a casual setting”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

This place has a large menu so there is something to tempt even young members of your party. It wasn't our favorite place in Apalachicola, but it was still tasty and affordable.

“Disapointed”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We really are not crazy about oysters and found little to be excited about at this place. We had lunch there one time and that was enough.

“It's all good”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

Boss is associated with The River Inn and it works for everyone. Oysters are served every
whichway and the customer has every choice.You are there to eat oysters,make a choice.
Maybe you can save 1 or 2 dollars elsewhere but you certainly won't get the selection .
PS The fresh shrimp was excellent.
