Picture 127 of 365

Food while we are on vacation is important! The Blue Parrot has been on St. George for a long long time and is a favorite. Good family atmosphere, a bit pricey.

Boss Oyster is tops in Apalachicola -- good food, pretty good prices. Bathroom is in a weird place, though.

Also in Apalachicola is the Apalachicola Grill. Open Tues to Sat from about 11:00 to 4:00 pm. Excellent fresh seafood at an excellent price. And Chez Funk is almost next door.

In Eastpoint is "That Place on 98" -- a must every trip. They were almost completely wiped out by Dennis. Most of the small oysterhouses on 98 are gone because of Dennis in 2005, as is the Grouper population. The area was hit by Category 5 flooding, but only Category 2 winds, but the flooding devestated the dunes on the barrier islands as well as many of the smaller businesses. The older houses suffered a lot of damage and there are people who still have not rebuilt or returned to the area. 2005 was hard on all of the Gulf coast.

Gone as well is Julia Mae's in Carrabelle. This restaurant was an institution. I remember going there as a kid and I really miss it.
