We had the blue crab cakes for lunch with a pitcher of Bud Lite for lunch and it was excellent . They serve fried green tomatoes and fries as sides. This is a very good lunch destination when in Apalachicola.

Laid back local seafood place. Dog friendly, sit on the back covered porch and watch the marsh and its inhabitants. Don't miss the place. Great seafood.
