The Raw Bar is something you just have to experience to really understand. When you go in, grab a drink from the coolers in the back (keep you caps because that is how they know how many drinks to put on your tab), put your name on the list, head back outside to enjoy the music and the company while you wait for your table. It's always a party at the Raw Bar and when leave you will have been sure to made a few new friends in addition to enjoying a great meal. Be sure to take bug spray. It can sometimes get buggy on Indian Pass.

They have a fairly large menu that includes salads, ribs, burgers, chicken, shrimp and fresh catch seafood. They also offer steamed king, blue, snow and Dungeness crab legs and claws. They serve local and craft beers on tap in addition to bottled beer, wine and speciality cocktails. Will and I ate at Krazy Fish in September and we had a few of their "real margaritas". They were super! Will ordered the shrimp and grits and I ordered a salad. The salad was good but....it was a salad. The shrimp and grits was fantastic!!
Krazy Fish Grill also has a kids menu with the standards...burgers, chicken fingers, popcorn shrimp and mac and cheese.
This is the place in Port St. Joe to go for artisan pizzas and salads. Joe Mama's isn't a big place and it fills up fast just about every night of the week during the summer season. The pizzas are cooked in a hardwood fired oven that was made in hills of Tuscany.

This is our family’s favorite place to eat in Apalach. The setting along the river is amazing and the food is just as good. If you love oysters, this is the place for you. They also have a full “non-oyster” menu too. This is the perfect place to end a day of exploring Apalach.
From their website: In the heart of downtown Apalachicola, the Owl Cafe offers a River City dining experience like no other.

Home of the “World’s Largest Fish Sandwich”…not sure if that is actually true but it is a really good sandwich. This is a great, casual spot to grab fish, chicken, shrimp and steaks. Located in the heart of historic Apalachicola.
I love the story behind old things that make them new again. They place has that kind of story. TJ grew up pumping gas at his father Tommy & grandfather Jimmy's filling station. For many years 53 Market Street was a full service station that our community would pull in for a fill up and would leave with a good laugh from the "witty" Tommy! After nearly 10 years of his Dad & Papa retiring and closing the doors on the station, TJ and Andrea have decided to open the doors on a new adventure at the station he grew up in, Pendleton's Raw Bar! Their menu includes the regular raw bar favorites plus salads, burgers, and sandwiches. There's a kids menu too.

This electric little beer garden is a true reflection of Old Florida...casual and friendly. Their own website says it best: If you like casual fun, good music, extreme sarcasm, and a good dose of BS'in, while chewin' on peanuts and sitting around an old wooden bar, then show your face, tell a story, and sing a song! Bring a friend!
The full musical line up calendar can be found on the website and Wednesdays from 6-9 pm are always Open Mic if you have the urge to perform while on vacation.
We have eaten at Killer Seafood several times and have always had great meals in a fun atmosphere. They have great fish tacos, seafood bowls (shrimp, oysters or scallops cooked in their famous simmerin' sauce) and friend seafood baskets. They are “cash only”….something we always forget. There is an ATM next door at the liquor store if you do too.
