We went for Happy Hour (which lasted until 7pm) and had a couple of dozen raw oysters and the smoked tuna dip. The oysters were great, especially with their house-brand hot sauce. We also enjoyed the tuna dip which was flavorful and well presented. Besides the food, the service was excellent!! We'll be back to explore some of the other... More

We tried this place as our new stop for the vacation. Both meals came with salads which were the highlight for my meal. My wife had fried oysters and sweet potato fries, those cost $1 more ( I think there were 12 fries). She liked her oysters. I ordered "half and half", shrimp and fish along with an order of... More

My wife and I went there to eat oysters. Went during happy hour and it was fantastic. We sat at the bar and watched the guy shuck our oysters as we waited to get them. They were fresh and great tastings. Comes with some great horseradish and sauces. Been there twice so far, but going back again. Drinks are half... More

After a long day on the road, we really wanted some good seafood. At first they told us there would be a 30 minute wait. Then 5 minutes later they were ready to seat us. I was looking forward to the fried green tomatoes - just so so. They had too much breading - but they give you a lot.... More

We ate there in early December. It was off-season, but they still had a full menu and service. I had the gumbo, and fresh oysters on the half shell. Both were delicious, but the portion on the gumbo was a bit skimpy. My wife had the bacon wrapped shrimp and they were great as well. Highly recommend.

Oh my goodness. My wife and I were so disappointed when we got too full too fast. We had the jumbo shrimp. It was delicious. The server was friendly and knowledgeable. It took awhile for our order to be prepared, but it was worth it.

Our server was very friendly and took good care of us. The food was not worth the visit. The fried oysters seemed to have been sitting under a heat lamp for too long.

Went here Tuesday during happy hour around 4:30 pm . We had oysters on half shell and they were so fresh! Seems though that most of them were quite small . We paid $7.50 per dozen ( happy hour ). I had the salmon salad with honey mustard dressing and this was delicious . My husband had the fish tacos... More
