Got a good view of the ocean from inside or outside seating areas. Good daily specials on food and drinks. The price and size of the oysters was enjoyable. The pitcher of there speciality drink the Hammerhead was very tasty. With a purchase of a pitcher of there specialty drinks you get a free tshirt. Friendly staff and bartender.

The food was excellent. Customer service was great. Will go again. The one thing I would suggest is remove customer when getting too loud at the bar.

We are here because they had a special on grouper. My husband really wanted it since we were at the beach... He ordered the grouper special for $10 and I ordered the bbq sandwich, both with potato salad. He said the grouper was really good, but it was a very small portion. It was about the size of a large... More

Enjoyed a crab cake sandwich which was really good. The other guys got oysters which ended up smelling pretty bad (apparently worse than normal). The waitress noticed, asked about them then took them back and took it off of the bill. Really top-notch service

I had the catch of the day grilled, expecting it to be a little crispy it turned out rather soggy. Don't come here if you want to talk to your fellow diners, you have to shout to be heard above the loud piped music.

We loved Dirty Don's. The Service was great. Prices = Great. Food = Great! Get the oyster sampler! The shrimp & grits burrito and blackened grouper tacos were also good! Drinks and drink prices very reasonable!

It's been good before, and it was again. A steamed oyster platter for $8 (Sat &.Sun, 2-4) can't be beat--you get at least 20-25.Wife had she crab soup (so-so) and a crab cake sandwich (very good). Service was incredibly attentive for a bar/lounge eatery. Two drafts--bill was $31

Thank rich and linda s
