We would appreciate recommendations where to go not fancy but where the locals enjoy the best quality and deal on oysters and regional food. Also any suggestions on stops along the way between Gainesville and Apalachicola. Thank you !

    I love the Owl Cafe in Apalach. +1 for Boss Oyster, too.

        Try Indian Pass Raw Bar and Triple Tails Tiki Bar - both in Gulf County before Port St Joe along 30A.

          Just made the trip along US HWY 98 to Pensacola. Had a great meal at the local restaurant that featured one all you can eat item per day located in Panacea. All things fried and generous portions. Only place I have seen cukes and onions for over ten years.

          Fish choices were snapper, grouper, and mullet. With my grey hair, I got the senior mixed platter. Beautiful shrimp, oysters, scallops, huge slab of mullet, crab cake, proper hush puppies. All fried. For a few dollars more, you can have it broiled or grilled.

          With two sides and sweet tea, total cost was in the eleven dollar range.

          Happy eating.

            In Apalach, definitely go to Boss Oyster...right on the water and great fresh seafood. Also, Up the Creek Raw Bar has a nice deck overlooking the water and great food.
