A real treat. Love the crab dip! Great food and Service, lovely atmosphere. You won't be sorry, one of the best places to eat in town.

We stumbled upon this place during a road trip and decided to have lunch here. And we sure weren't disappointed. This restaurant opened in 1908 and feels very genuine. Even though it is quite casual, we felt a bit underdressed in flip flops and bare...More

Restaurant was recommended and we were not disappointed. Food is delish especially their home-made salad dressing which is available for purchase (which I'm still enjoying at home).

i'm rating this place as average solely because it was. I thought I would be getting a first class meal due to location and menu descriptions. My chicken Marsala was tender but lacked marsala wine flavor. A crab dip they served was uneventful while my...More

Even a mediocre restaurant would be good in Apalachicola. The town has such a good vibe, I don't think it's possible to not be enjoyable. But the Owl Cafe is anything but mediocre. They would be a cut above no matter where they were. The...More
