My friends think this is the best Keylime pie in Apalachicola. That's pretty high praise, because many restaurants serve good Keylime pie here. I like their menu, I like the ambiance. I have had girl friend lunches here that are great, and I had a lovely Valentines dinner here as well. I like the service and the servers.

I had the grilled romaine salad and the crab stuffed Mahi Mahi; my wife had the pear calibrese salad and the pork chop. But she didn't want the crawfish sauce for the pork chop as she doesn't like seafood. The waitress said she would talk to the chef about other options; the owner/chef then came to the table, sat down,... More

Stopped here for a quick lunch. The service was fantastic. The beef short rib special was excellent.

After spending two weeks along the Forgotten Coast, indulging in raw oysters and fried seafood, what a treat to eat at Tamara's. Flavorful, well-prepared food that took advantage of locally sourced seafood, but took it in another direction. My husband had the blackened grouper with black beans and rice, and I had the paella ( with shrimp, scallops, chicken, sausage,... More

We met the bartender Christian who was authentic and poured a real drink. The owner then greeted us and casually offered us support with our canoe and kayaks to his local accommodation. All was offered to us as a donation in kind to our journey across the US without his knowledge. The people and hospitality at this location is real... More

It's my pleasure to write a review for Tamara's Restaurant. I work in Apalachicola and dine there every week. Their daily specials never disappoint and Chef Cat's creations always have a twist that makes the dishes exceptional. My taste buds water at the thought of trying specials at Tamara's. Their wine selections are top notch and hands down, have had... More

My husband had the short ribs, black beans and rice and his meal was absolutely fantastic - best black beans we have ever tried and of course the short ribs were perfection! I had grilled fish tacos - which were awesome! I highly recommend this place as the prices are very reasonable for the quality you get!
