Enjoyed our dinner last night, but wish we'd had time to wait for the "porch." It's air conditioned and looks out over the shrimp boats and calm water. The crab cakes were good and the Cajun shrimp appetizers delicious. Seems to be a favorite with locals - reasonably priced for this town at high season.

If you like your seafood fried, this is the place for you! The service was good and the restaurant featured scenic views, but the food was just average. The crab cakes were battered and fried into oblivion and the shrimp was not a vast improvement. Given the quality and quantity of the food, you do not get good value for your dollar. There are an abundance of restaurants in Apalachicola that feature great views and fresher, more original dishes, I would not encourage you to start here.

Papa Joe's does oysters right. The shrimp and the oyster loafs are great. The fish sandwiches are also good and the beer is cold. Great view of the busy waterway.
