Its hard to rate 3 out of 5 but we just felt there was an opportunity missed to really showcase the area and their unique product. American River is a sleepy village but the industrial nature of the area wasn't that tourist friendly. To offer...More

If you are into Oysters then go and enjoy the fresh sea food. They come straight out of the bay, so really fresh. The cost is good for fresh oysters.

We had 6 oysters, a small amount of Whiting and a mini bottle of local wine. For a modest lunch we had to pay $90. The whiting was nice but was dwarfed by a tonne of shredded cabbage. When buying seafood from the source you...More

First, if you're eating in, they hand you tray of oysters, a tired piece of lemon, no crackers or sauce, and no offer either. At $21.00 a dozen, and no better than the Coffin Bays at $18.50 in Kingscote, it's a bit of a ripoff...More
