Yowza! I thought I'd had oysters before. Not like at Deal's. Passing through Perry after paddling north Florida rivers, I stopped for dinner at Deals' because despite it unprepossessing exterior, there were cars parked everywhere all around it. Stepped inside - like a big diner. Sat at the counter behind which two guys were shucking oysters. Dude slaps an oyster... More

Fresh seafood, but not much options in delivery. Pretty much bland fried seafood. Nice folks though! Overpriced.

Everyone at the table ate something different. Typical southern seafood restaurant. The atmosphere was genuine but could be cleaner.

This one is worth stopping for. A bit out of the way but great food, kind people and true southern atmosphere.

I went to this place because of the good reviews on here. The fried oysters were soggy and essentially tasteless, not sweet like the good ones I've had. Coleslaw decent, hush puppy squiggles did not have much taste.

Nothing fancy but friendly service. Fried seafood - fresh coleslaw. Not the best but certainly good. Oysters amazingly good. A little pricey we thought given small scallops and hush puppies not the best. But it is clean and decent food. Great entertainment also - lol - pogo stick one person band. 👍

Very friendly people and delicious food. The freshest seafood, the swamp cabbage side is a must! I stop in for a meal on every trip through the area.

Best thing going in Perry Fla. Generous portions of "old Florida seafood." Friendly staff and atmosphere. A must stop.

Friendly, personal service. You are greeted when you enter and again when you leave. Food is good. Ask the owner to play the broomstick and know that hushpuppies taste great with a little quava jelly. Oysters served fresh on the half shell.
