Ever feel like you've died and gone ti Heaven? That's how the hubby and I felt eating Wood Smoked Boss Oysters! If you love oysters cooked, they are done just to "set," and taste absolutely incredible!!

My family and I usually end up here when in Apalachicola, but I was especially grateful for their atmosphere while visiting with my five month old. Also OYSTER TACOS. SO GOOD.

My husband is on a mission to eat baked oysters all over town. Several interesting choices here, all were very good. I also ordered a salad, it was huge and very good.

Great oysters, expect average food at mid prices. Restaurant layout is confusing, rest room out on street

Average food but really pretty views. Oysters were good and beer was cold. Kids had fun watching fishermen coming in with their catch after the morning charters.

I have eaten mountains of oysters in my life time, but this was the first time I was served unclean oysters. The dirt and sand were caked on so it was difficult to shuck without getting grit in the oyster. The oysters were good and...More

We also make a point of eating at Boss Oyster when vacationing on St. George Island. The oysters and other seafood are always excellent, and the beer always cold! Boss Oyster sits right on the river and offers indoor and outdoor covered seating along with...More

Yes there is outside dining. I think there is handicap access, but I'm not 100% sure. I do not remember seeing any dogs. I suggest that you call them at (850) 653-9364.
