We had two beautiful dinners here. Be sure to make reservations, as I personally believe this is the nicest restaurant in Apalachicola. We had fabulous Apalachicola raw oysters, entree salads with fried oysters on one and crab cakes on the other, seafood jambalaya, and penne pasta with chicken. (No, not all at once!) Anyway, professional and friendly service, and prices not too dear, rounded out two very notable dinners.

Please see my title. This is a very nice restaurant. It is a little pricey, but worth it. The wine menu was wonderful. The fish was exceptionally fresh. If you want oysters prepared 20 different ways, this is not the right place for your taste. If you want a very good fish restaurant with a great wine menu and decent service, then this is the right restaurant for you. I will return here on my next visit.

Started off good, seated right away, server was on top if it. Then went down hill. Ordered wine, didn't get it till we got our food, then we didn't see him until we were done. Food was ok, salad was Luke warm, green garlic ranch was pretty good. That's about it.

Very nice place for dinner. Great food, service and atmosphere. After dinner walk across the road and see the shrimp boats and beautiful Appalachicola bay. Nice linen table cloth tables but great place for kids too will do almost anything half portion for kids and they give the kids crayons to color on the paper table runners over the linen table cloths. Love it visit everytime we are in the area.

Well worth the price, and the service and views of the river make it even better. I even have their Tshirt!
