Sit at the bar and watch as they place your oysters on the grill and then magically turn them into a flaming tower of gulf Coast deliciousness. It is a great place to sit with friends and enjoy a dozen or two.

This place was amazing. I HATE oysters, but I tried theirs grilled. These were the best things ever. I also ordered their surf and turf and this was the best filet I have ever eaten. So tender, cooked to perfection and the crab cake excellent....More

Both locations were fantastic. The raw oysters as well as the New Orleans style grilled were great. Service at both was attentive and relaxed. Highly recommend if you want fresh, flavorful, great prepared oysters and seafood.

We had read that this was a good restaurant. When you arrive and there's a 45 minute wait, you know that's true! Luckily, we were able to get seats at the bar. The gumbo was delicious - very "clean" tasting. The steak was tender. The...More

Response from Kevin F | Property representative |
Absolutely, we are open normal hours on Easter Sunday, in fact we normally open the doors a little before 11 just to get folks in and seated if there's a line outside.
Are there views of the water at either location?

You can see the water from the right spot in either location, however in both locaations we are a couple blocks off of the Gulf, so the view of the water isn't the best.
