You will not be disappointed eating here. The Portions are large & the prices are low compared to some other places near by. Excellent. Eating where you overlook the water is always relaxing

Looking for fresh oysters, we drove over from Carrabelle to this place which was well recommended by townspeople. They were right! We arrived at opening time (11:00 a.m.) and it was already getting busy. We ordered and didn't wait long for our 4-dozen oysters, sandwiches and a kids meal. The salmon and bacon sandwich was really good, as was the... More

Raw oysters, fresh and large. One dozen was not enough, had to have another dozen. Grayton Pale Ale on tap was excellent. Good service and fair prices. I'll be back again the next time I'm in the area.

We all enjoyed our evening eating on the bay. Great family atmosphere for dinner. Could eat inside or out on partial screened deck. The food and service was good all 3 nights we ate there. Pretty good variety of food. We all had oysters, burgers, grilled grouper, crab cakes, fish tacos, pasta, fried shrimp, black bean and corn soup, black... More

We went early on a Saturday evening, hoping to arrive before the crowd. They had plenty of business, but we still managed to grab a table. We both had the grilled Mahdi dinner. I preceded mine with a bowl of their excellent gumbo; my wife added a small plate from the salad bar. This was perhaps the best grilled Mahdi... More

This is a fun place to go with family or friends. Nice high-ceiling room, and outside seating overlooking the river. The main dishes are good but not inspired. They have some very very good sides - tuna dip, sautéed brussels sprouts, homemade potato chips. They also have a vegetarian burger - something more local restaurants should carry. I think you'll...

Food here was great! My husband loved the different oyster selections and I had a great shrimp basket. We also really enjoyed the beer selections. Nice, casual atmosphere with nice views!
