I had both raw and fried oysters and they were both great! Others in my party had shrimp and they were pleased as well. I would definitely go back.

I like to try Crab Cakes from different restaurants. Theirs were disappointing due to way too much bread crumbs and not much crab. The entrees we ordered were great and tasty. Low Country Boil was very good. Blackened Redfish over Cajun Rice with a creamy...More

We visited twice last summer. Service was extremely slow both visits even though the place was near empty on our final weeknight visit. The food was mediocre at best. Everyone did enjoy the crab legs though.

Predictably good. We eat there often. Great outdoor area if the weather is cooperative. They know how to do southern fried seafood. Oysters and shrimp are delicious. Cheese grits a nice accompaniment!

We went a bit wayward on our way home, but found this gem! We frequented Wintzell's in Orange Beach (now closed) and ecstatic to find in Guntersville. Happy hour (3-6pm) is worth the trek!! We had half-price oysters in the half shell, draft Yuengling beers,...More

We're local but go when we have a special occasion, prices are steep (what seafood isn't these days?) but fair for the amount of food you receive. We usually order the lunch or dinner J.O. Platter which is a seafood platter loaded down with a...More

It was fine. Not the greatest. I️ had the fish tacos and they were ok but not fabulous. The gumbo was good. Oysters were average.
