My first dinner at Owens's was in 1981 and over the intervening years I've had perhaps two dozen dinners at Owens's. The most recent was three weeks ago when my husband and I were here for a late autumn, off-season beach break. I'm very happy to say that Owens's is not only what it's always been, it's still as good as it's always been. The preliminaries were the customary spreadable cheese and basket of crackers and melbas and then the justly-famous hush puppies with fresh butter. Our entrees were the fried oysters and glazed salmon. My husband was happy with his salmon and I was in oyster heaven with the excellent--perfect, really--fried oysters. The service was equally good--prompt, knowledgeable, and attentive without being intrusive. We had the 10-layer cake for dessert because I wanted to try this regional specialty and knew this would be a good specimen. It was quite good, but a little sweeter than either of us prefer--not the restaurant's fault, just our preference. The coffee (and coffee service) was excellent. In all, another in a long succession of good evenings at Owens's.
