This storefront corner cafe looks and acts like it has been here for 100 years...and may it be here for another 100. It is an outstanding old time eatery whose modest appearance belies true quality food. Bragging rights include a claim to the world's largest fish sandwich and signs everywhere warning patrons that there will be "no pissy attitudes" tolerated. Ain't no reason to get pissy around here if you enjoy good quick and friendly service and terrific fried seafood. I confess to being a frying fool when it comes to seafood and the basket of oysters, fish, shrimp and scallops were as good as any this fool has found. Feather-light crispy batter, plump succulent local oysters and shrimp cooked to perfection (that is..not overdone). I can't speak for the rest of the menu, but why go past a proven favourite. And here is the real kicker!!! My waitress appeared with a heaped plateful and the admission..."I owe you a piece of fish which is being cooked right now. One fell off the plate when I made a sharp turn in the kitchen." Now THAT is service. Old fashioned quality service, just like the food.

We dined here for a late lunch, but were super hungry so ate like it was dinner. I had grilled shrimp that were excellent. The crab cakes were good, but didn't have the big chunks of crab meat in them. Fried oysters were excellent and the coconut shrimp was delicious. The server seemed a little rushed/irritated, not sure what the problem was. But we received our food in good time. Was a little expensive, but the prices ranged depending on the sides. I would go again but not before I try some other restaurants in the area.

The food at the Grill is top notch. Oysters and grouper cannot be better anywhere. Help yourself to some top notch bottled microbrews in the cooler and it's all a great deal. Sometimes the wait can be a little long especially for large tables so put your name on the list and wander around the streets of Apalachicola. Check in occasionally because sometimes the time estimate is longer than reality and you will be passed over if not there when your name is called.

We had lunch at the Apalachicola Seafood Grill today, and it was outstanding! The food was well prepared, and very tasty. I had the cheeseburger, and my spouse had the crab cake sandwich. The service was above reproach, and the prices very reasonable.

This is a good place to eat, the service was polite and friendly and the place has a casual atmosphere. The food was presented nicely and we had fried oysters which are known to be very good. Also a nice fried fish salad platter which was fresh and also decently priced. There is a small bar which serves cocktails, I had a pomegranate margarita--very tasty. It was a far drive from NJ, but the place is down to earth and a refreshing change and we enjoyed the visit.
