Wow. Would have gladly eaten another dozen oysters and had another beer, but even had to go inside to get and pay my bill. And I waited a long time. Tipped more than I should, because the prices were so great. But would have easily doubled my tip for SOME service. But can't deny that the oysters were awesome

Solid good prices, food is great but don't expect a variety! They have a cash discount that was awesome! Seating is iffy so get there early if you want to snag a table for dinner.

The food was great! We had a burger and a chicken sandwich, both with jerk seasoning, with onion rings. I would say the burger was better than the chicken. Server had very little personality and we had to ask for more drink. If the service had been better would of given the 5 stars. Definitely a hole in the wall... More

An oyster bar without oysters? Everyone could not have been nicer, but there's no reason to be there without the star of the show. So get there early or risk disappointment.

No expectations going in after reading the reviews. Casual? Beyond casual. Fancy? Not in the least. Eclectic and fun. Delicious oysters!! This coming from a guy from New Orleans. The baked version was the best. Cheese and garlic ... wow! Their grouper sandwich is very good. Recommended. Same with the chicken sandwich. And thei IPA on draft is excellent. The... More

The hamburgers are among the best in Tallahassee and the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The oysters and grouper are also very good. The venue is not fancy, but the food is amazing. Oh yes - got a 10% discount for paying cash.

This is my favorite place in Tallahassee for oysters. Fortunately my husband (who is not an oyster eater) loves their burgers. They also have delicious fries and their onion rings can be hit or miss. The interior of the restaurant is covered with a hodgepodge collection of memorabilia and just plain junk. It is more of a bar than restaurant.

The reviews are absolutely correct, one heck of a 10 oz. burger, or larger, cooked just right on a great bun. $9 plus 50 cents per topping. A dozen baked oysters w parmesan and garlic, $11.5O, out of this world. You order at the bar, pay or give them a cc and your all set. Food is delivered to your... More
