Great seafood with good variety. Oysters, shrimp, grouper, Flounder (my favorite). Wine and beer offerings, friendly waitresses and decent service. Great lunch specials and dinner specials. And for a seafood place they have AWESOME ribs on Thursday evenings and Prime Rib on Fridays!

The tired decor matched the food. Grouper sandwich came topped with a slice of old, bitter onion and wilted lettuce. Tarter sauce arrived when half the sandwich was gone. No butter for dinner roll. The coleslaw was good.

Our boat is in a nearby village and had heard many times that this was one of the better seafood restaurants near there. Had friends with us and decided to try it out. Unfortunately most of the food we got was breaded and fried. We were not made aware of that or asked how we would like it prepared. Just... More

My husband and I discovered why the parking lot is filled at lunch and dinner time. The food here is really good! We went late afternoon and beat the crowd. The blackened grouper was delicious!

As others have said, don't let the exterior put you off. The place is no frills: folding chairs and tables, dated decor. But the food is fresh and good. I had the shrimp, oysters and grouper dinner, husband had part of mine and big bowl of gumbo. Everything was excellent but a bit pricey. Definitely worth the stop

An unexpected gift to find this lovely family run restaurant. Having tried raw oysters across about 75% of the US, surprised to find Posey's has the best so far on our trip! Plump, juicy, fresh and extremely tasty! Memaw Posey, Papa Posey, their kids (expect for the one who catches all the food fresh for the restaurant) and the grandkids... More

By far, Posey's has the best grilled grouper in Wakulla County. Seasoned well and large portions. My husband loves the prime rib.

We love eating here and enjoy everything: oysters, shrimp, blue crab claws, crab cakes, cheese grits, slaw and more. We would come more often, but it is about 60 miles from where we stay on St. George Island each winter. The service is always excellent and food is always great!

My wife and I came this way for late lunch. If you select a place based on how the outside looks you will miss the opportunity for good food. Once inside we were seated promptly and noticed that there were still a number of folks at the counter as well as a group with a special function in the rear.... More
