With Appalachicola Bay to one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other, it’s not surprising that fresh, local-caught seafood is the feature of restaurants on St. George Island. Locals tout that the best oysters in the world come from Appalachicola, and you’ll have plenty of opportunity to taste-test—they’re served steamed, grilled, baked, in chowder, and on the half shell. You’ll also find burger, pizza and ice cream shops for casual good times!
