Sorry Kathy, I've never been there for Sunday Brunch. I checked their website and it doesn't give it..Your best bet is to give them a call.
Can I get fried oysters at about 2:00 PM this coming Sunday, 9/11?

You must mean the Sunday a Brunch. No lobster, but there is always sushi, crab clusters, and fish of the day. Other seafood on the brunch line varies.
