Franklin County’s diverse dining establishments offer visitors everything from casual beachfront restaurants and river-front oyster bars to upscale cafes featuring continental cuisine, coastal specialties, six-course chef’s tasting menus and seasonal wine dinners.
Local fare served in more than 30 area restaurants features wholesome and nutritious seafood from the pristine Apalachicola Bay, Alligator Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico, including oysters, clams, shrimp and blue crabs.
More than 186 species of fish are found in the Apalachicola Bay estuarine system alone; flounder, redfish, red snapper, mahi-mahi, grouper, cobia, amberjack, Spanish mackerel and wahoo are a sampling of fresh-caught fish frequently found on local menus.
In addition to serving seafood fresh from local markets, many Franklin county chefs also patronize local and regional dairies, beekeepers, produce and livestock farmers to provide the freshest in cheeses, honey, coffee, organic produce and meats for their patrons.
