We will return next Jan and Feb. I know where the Owl Cafe is located. Is there something special there that you recommend?

I've not been there the end of June but if you like to beach it, I think it would be great.

We just got back from Cape San Blas Sunday and ate at the Owl Cafe for the first time....REALLY enjoyed the fried oysters!!

Sunset Coastal Grill in Port St. Joe is another great choice for food...

in Apalachicola you can't go wrong!

We go to the Cape 4-5 times a year and have for years. Happy to answer any questions for anyone considering a trip!

Wendy, we have not been to the Owl Cafe, we will have to try it this winter, but agree on the Sunset Coastal Grill in Port St Joe, it is very good.

When we were there last Jan-Feb, Port St Joe was building a new hospital, do you happen to know if it's opened yet?

Well here it is 2012 and we're getting ready to leave the Cape after wonderful winter weather this year! I wanted to add some restaurants to my original rant list.

Hole in the Wall - Apalachicola - great oysters and buttermilk pie!

Verandas - Apalachicola (upscale)

And as was stated above, The Owl ( upscale) Apalachicola and Sunset Coastal Grill, Port St Joe

I want to remove my recommendation of Dockside. The view is great but the food not up to par.

I can REALLY recommend where we stay on Cape San Blas. It is: http://www.vrbo.com/234823 We have stayed there the past 3 winters and you are literally on the sand, yards from the water. You can sit on your front porch and eat breakfast/lunch/dinner at the rail watching the waves..Your front porch steps lead you directly into the sand and then the water. It has the best views of any beach house we have ever had....you can see water from every room in the house except one bathroom and one small bedroom (it has 4 bedrooms and 3 baths) We dearly love it there. If you have any more questions, just ask...

The closest airport would be Panama City. If you decide on going there, post back and I can give directions from the airport....I will have to tell you the hot tub broke while we were there this year and I think they are taking it out. If you like peace and quite and total blackness at night (can see the stars really great!) you will love it. The closest large grocery store is in Port St Joe but the Trading Post and Scallop Cove have limited products. The Trading Post has wonderful pizza for only 10.00! They are both very close to this rental.

There is a bike trail that runs the length of the Peninsula down to the State Park which is at the end, and Scallop Cove has bike rentals. One part of the peninsula permits horseback riding on the beach and you can kayak on the bay side.
