First visit ever with 2 cousins on a girls trip. What a nice surprise to walk in and be greeted so nicely and look around and see white tablecloths! Very pleasant experience and wonderful food!

I recommend reservations- even for lunch. Service is great! On our visit, the Crab Dip with homemade chips were wonderful. I had the fried gulf shrimp which were huge, very lightly breaded, and seasoned to perfection. My daughter had the Linguini with Chicken, my husband the Shrimp Tacos, and a friend had the burger. We all had salads with homemade... More

Hostess named Jackie was extremely rude. I have been a Owl customer for many years and never treated this bad, After checking with many locals, she has a history of treating customers in a rude manner, as well as servers employed there, I had noticed a high turnover of servers. Time to move on to a better restaurant with better... More

We go to The Owl every year for brunch and always love it. Really pretty place with friendly and attentive staff. My go-to choice is always the shrimp and grits but I have to say that this time it was very blah. It was good but nothing special. Usually it's amazing and I had raved about it to our guests...

The Owl Cafe offered an eclectic menu, including a few entrees, sandwiches, and salads. The oyster po boy, and the grouper sandwich were good, the jambalaya less so, but the homemade salad dressings were excellent.

I'm telling you this right now, if you are in the Apalach area you need to eat at The Owl. It was recommended to us by a couple on St George Island and I'm so glad they did. This place is amazing! I called a week out and got reservations simply because their website recommended it. Downtown Apalachacola can be... More

Came here for lunch with friends. Busy place, but I never felt rushed and the service was very good. Food was great. We all had a bite of an excellent chocolate dessert-can't remember the name, but there was only one of its kind on the menu. Only complaint was my husband's lukewarm coffee, which the waitress fixed immediately. Would definitely... More

Went for a day trip into town from St George's Island. Had lunch at the Owl Cafe at the recommendation of friends. Was not disappointed. Relaxed but refined atmosphere the restaurant appears to be in an historic building. I had vegetarian black bean soup and oyster salad. Very tasty and fresh. My wife had a shrimp taco and daughter had... More

The upstairs is very good, but a little pricey. We like to vacation in Saint George Island and always go over to Apolachicola for some meals. The Owl Tap Room (below the restaurant) has an amazing draught beer selection and the food is great. Go between 4-6 and they have happy hour. Get the crab dip. The fried tortillas with... More
