We had a party of eight for bfast. Had the bfast in a cup, biscuits, pancakes, cheese grits and the fisherman's wife bowl. Everything was excellent, especially liked the pancakes. They were huge, thick and tasty. Highly recommend it as a bfast spot in Carrabelle.

We had a wonderful breakfast at this great little restaurant. We had eggs, fried potatoes, and pancakes. It was all hot, tasted great, and the service was excellent. Great history also!

The Fisherman Wife is a quaint and quiet place. Good for families and friends to have a dinner without the normal outside noise. Food good and service excellent.
