What a surprise

We were staying on St. George Island and electricity was off for the day. We decided to head to Aoalachicola and had a blast! We found this bar and headed in for great drinks and fantastic Gumbo. We will definitely go again and will try the shrimp. The ladies next to us tried the shrimp and said... read more

The food and service was great! My husband loved the flounder and I the linguini with clam sauce. We will return if we pass by again.

Went there on a recommendation from motel clerk and were not disappointed. Locals all seemed to be enjoying their favorites. We had a hard time picking from the big menu. Oysters were high quality and good. Fish taco, good. Grilled shrimp also good. Unique atmosphere and very casual so good for talking while dining.

Oysters were a bit smaller, think that is just luck of the draw. Rest of lunch was very good. I'd go again.

The oysters are great and come in many variations. The conch grill cakes are divine and the shrimp marvelous. The sweet potato fries are the best around.

For the price, having to order your meal and seating yourself at a table was awkward. Since the servers bring the food out, why not go the extra step and have them take the order. We did enjoy the view on the porch but noticed the tables were too close together.

I got a cup of crab bisque and baked oysters and was wishing I got a bowl of bisque! The oysters were good, but the bisque was heavenly. It was my first time to ever have crab bisque and now my standards have been spoiled high!
