Driving Cape San Blas Road toward T.H. Stone Memorial St. Joseph Peninsula State Park, off to the right I spotted a big black banner hanging on a white and blue building. Sandwiched between a pair of white skull and crossbones, it read “Skully’s Low Country Boil.” Something told me it served really good food and hoped it would be open later in the afternoon. Especially since I was camping and it appeared restaurant options on Cape San Blas are limited.

Before heading out for a sunset horseback ride on the beach, Skully’s was my dinner destination and it was super, duper delicious! Especially since for $15, I got a low country boil plate.

Skully’s Low Country Boil is a no-frills seafood shack and everything, albeit the menu is limited, is served as takeout. Savor the yumminess at one of the picnic tables or take it back to your campsite or vacation rental. The low country boil was half a pound of plump, pink Gulf shrimp, red boiled potatoes, sausage, and corn on the cob. Mmm. Mmm. Did I mention how good it was???

I shared my picnic table with the resident cat named Obama. Yes. Obama. He’s a black and white kitty who loves the smell of boiled shrimp. I imagine he enjoys the taste, too, but I did not want to give into his bad habits so I didn’t feed him.

The gal running this no-frills place – she took my order, prepared it and served it – told me there used to be an orange cat named Trump. The cats were named by her son. Obama and Trump didn’t get along and fought a lot until one day, Trump ran away with a female cat down the road. True story.

Other than the low country boil served in three different sizes, the limited menu also has Southern style gumbo and fresh gulf shrimp. Nothing wrong with keeping it simple!

There was a chair set up for entertainment and imagine on the weekends and in the evenings, this is the place to go for good food, good people, and good music.

Skully’s Low Country Boil is a great place to eat while visiting Cape San Blas. Good price and good eats.
