Restaurants on St. George Island
If you’re hoping to find your favorite seafood right on the island, never fear – plenty of favorite eateries are here! Blue Parrot Oceanfront Cafe is popular for surf and turf and for an unbeatable view of the Gulf of Mexico. Another excellent option is Paddy’s Raw Bar, which has earned its sterling reputation by offering locally sourced oysters, peel-and-eat shrimp and a diverse selection of beer. Other great choices for seafood include the Beach Pit or Black Marlin’s Bar & Grill.
Once you’ve sampled the best of St. George Island’s fare, consider an excursion to nearby Eastpoint to select a dining spot among a number of local restaurants, including the Red Pirate Family Grill and Oyster Bar and Family Coastal Restaurant.
Then, cross the John Gorrie Memorial Bridge to explore the charming streets of Apalachicola before selecting the perfect dinner spot. Up the Creek Raw Bar, The Owl Cafe and the Apalachicola Seafood Grill are all excellent options, and they’re but a few of the local restaurants at your disposal.
Seafood Markets and More
Travelers who prefer to cook their own seafood will enjoy shopping at the region’s excellent seafood markets. Doug’s Seafood and Dail’s Seafood are both conveniently situated right on SGI; our Eastpoint guests often head straight to Lynn’s Quality Oysters.
Finally, there’s the crown jewel of the Forgotten Coast’s seafood scene: the annual Florida Seafood Festival. The festival takes place over several days each November and features an array of events and – you guessed it – a whole lot of seafood.
