Everything is great - food, view ambience, etc. Oysters of course. You gotta try the Southern Fella, they're special. Oysyers, collards and bacon lead the way. Go.

It was fun to watch the birds and boats go by sitting on the viewing porch. It’s a casual place where you place your order at the counter and pick up your drinks
They did not have Apalachicoloa oysters so I tried the mussels which were good not epic. Hubby had the grouper basket which was good with ample fries and 2 yummy hush puppies Everyone was friendly

Perfect casual Florida meal, especially if you want oysters or shrimp. If you vegan, probably want to pass. We had Southern fella oysters (our fave), fish tacos (okay, like a little more spice in mine) and grilled shrimp. Good cold beers and a nice view of the water and horizon. We sat on the balcony looking out the window view. This is a semi serve location. They bring the drinks and you go place your order and they deliver the food when ready. Very friendly staff. I would definitely return.

We've visited before and like the porch and open deck with a great view of the river, literally at your feet. It's a typical Apalachicola seafood joint. Order at the counter, self serve soft drinks and find your own table. We've tried many things here but the thing that sets them apart are what they call steamer clams. They say they are harvested locally at Alligator Point and these folks are the only people we found who serve them. Yes, they have fresh oysters but those can be had anywhere. Ditto other fried food baskets for the timid taste buds. Craft beer selection is far better than average. We'll keep coming back for the clams and the view.

A waterside restaurant which is also pet friendly on the screened or open air porch that faces the water. Went here for dinner all three nights we were in town to have raw oysters. Local, fresh, and delicious. Moscow Oysters (raw with horseradish, sour cream, and caviar on top) were fabulous. Oysters from Cedar Key. The crab cake was not something I would recommend, but the raw oysters and the drinks were top notch! Friendly service each night - come in, grab a menu, sit down and figure out what you want to order, go back into the bar and place your order and they will bring the food and drink to your table. Wonderful views and friendly atmosphere!
