The bar maid was very friendly and made us custom cocktails which I thought was above and beyond. We tried to order a couple of items from the tapas menu only to find they were out or didn't make the item anymore. That was discouraging. And the food service was very slow on that day. Went back another day and... More

A group of us arrived at 6:00pm for both food and drinks. There were no customers at the tables, just three apparent locals sitting at the end of the bar talking to the bartender. We walked right past the bartender but she failed to even acknowledge us. No "welcome, have a seat and someone will be with you shortly" or... More

The tapas here are very good sizes. High top tables and good variety of things to chose from. The desserts were crazy good too.

So a friend promised me a mojito I would love, and I'm the kind of person that will give the drink back if it's no good or made with that funky sour mix or premix stuff. Well when I ordered my drink the bartender Megan went outside and picked fresh mint, and she washed it! Then she proceeds to make... More

Apparently there was another room in the restaurant where a large crowd was having Easter Sunday brunch. A hypoglycemic person in our entourage had to beg for soup as we waited for over an hour for our meal. The food was so so. Seems there was only one person in the kitchen and they had not planned ahead.

Had lunch during the Apalach Art Walk (they are not normally open for lunch) and it was delicious. I had the sliders, the portion was great and the meat was seasoned perfectly. The fries were excellent. Came back later that night for the entertainment, a three-piece Southern rock band and the place was hopping with the locals celebrating a successful... More

My wife and I dined here one night during our stay in Apalachicola. We both had pasta dishes. Mine was okay, but my wife's was bland to the point of being tasteless. But what impressed us the least was the service. Our waitress obviously didn't want to be there, and barely made eye contact with either of us when she... More

We had wine, beers, the paella was excellent! The appetizers were very tasty and all food was well prepared. The server was friendly and had good suggestions. There was live music and we danced- what a great evening!

Every time I make my way to Apalachicola, I must have at least one night at my favorite tapas bar. The food is amazing and he service is always excellent. The offer live music which only adds to the relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommended.
