Once again we were not disappointed! The crab dip was amazing. The housemade salad dressings are awesome (try the creamy horseradish). We had the grouper special and the red snapper special. The snapper was terrific - an entire snapper quick fried with a teriyaki sauce. And a great chocolate mouse dessert to end the meal.

We had a lovely meal at the Owl Cafe. Our server, Sham, was friendly, quick and efficient. My husband wanted a virgin daiquiri, which they didn't have, but Sham got the bartender to make a fruity drink as a substitute. Tables were nicely set with white tablecloths. Attractive decor. Portions were large. It's quite a popular place, so make reservations... More

We enjoyed dining at The Owl Cafe. It has good reviews and I can see why. We were able to dine outside upstairs and even bring our little dog along with us on the trip. We had the fried shrimp. The shrimp were large and perfectly cooked. Service was great. Apalachicola is a nice small town that has a lot... More

Service was great. Food was.... just okay. Nothing we would have to experience twice; not outstanding. Very pricey. On the plus side, dogs are allowed outside on upstairs dining deck; if we did return, we would bring our fur baby.

From start to finish, out experience was AMAZING! To begin with, our server was knowledge about the menu and energetic without being annoying. He was attentive for the entire meal. We started with the prosciutto appetizer as well as a special soup they had for the evening, the gazpacho. Both were flavorful and delicious. Next were the bread and salads.... More

Do not let the exterior throw you off- upstairs is the best restaurant in town, with enough wine selections to satisfy most palates. The staff is very friendly, and they also have a balcony overlooking Old Town for the months leading up to June.

Nice view on the second floor. Perfect place to watch a renovation of an old building next door. The food was better than expected and service impeccable.

The food, service, atmosphere and price cannot be beat. We were impressed with our din in experience. If you visit Apalachicola you just have to stop in here for a meal. It does not stop there, the owners invest in the community including supporting literacy through the summer reading programs for all ages at the county libraries.

Good variety. The table had the grouper sandwich, the linguini and the fried shrimp. All lunches were abundant and delicious. Service was excellent. The chocolate mousse cake was shared and was delicious.

My husband and I had dinner at the Owl Cafe. We chose the restaurant based on all the great reviews. The service was outstanding. Unfortunately, we found the food to be just average. I had the black grouper entree with fresh vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. The potatoes resembled a scoop of ice cream and were barely warm. The mixed... More
