Had lunch at the Owl Cafe with my wife and two year old on a Saturday afternoon in April. The wait staff were pretty friendly but sat us in a corner of the restaurant where there were no other customers... I assume because of our two year old. The waitress was friendly, the food was very good, and their beer & wine selection was outstanding. Obviously we tried the oysters which were great but our son had the pasta bolognese... which ended up being out of this world. My wife is Italian (we've been to Italy numerous times) and she said it was the best tomato sauce she had ever had in a restaurant. Bottom line, try the Owl and you won't be disappointed... just don't expect a good view if you bring a toddler.

We enjoyed lunch at the Owl Cafe. The location is convenient and has some beautiful views. Food as very good and fresh. Service was good, the hostess noticed our server had not yet greeted us so she took the initiative to get our drinks. I wish they had more shaded seating in the balcony as we would have enjoyed sitting outside.

Wrap was packed full of grilled chicken, FRESH vegetables, goat cheese, HUGE...delicious, and a teriffic value for $10, which included a side salad. Attentive, friendly servers. Cheerful atmosphere. Only my second visit, but future trips to Apalachicola will be planned around dining here.

We were in Apalachicola for the day and decided to try the Owl Cafe because of the reviews And I'm glad we did. We decided to order the crab dip appetizer and then split the fish tacos that was a daily special. The crab dip was good but a little one dimensional for us. Oh, but the fish tacos were amazing. The wonderful mix of flavors from the slaw and the lightly breaded fish made for the best fish tacos I have ever eaten! The plate came with two tacos and since the waiter knew we were splitting it he brought out extra lemon and tartar sauce for my friend. All of the waiters were super friendly and polite which made our experience even better!

Three of us couples celebrated our 30th anniversaries together at The Owl. The service was gracious and food, especially the seafood, was excellent. Save room for desserts, they were wonderful, too!
