Fun night, good food

Chargrilled oysters were good; cold beer, super fresh fish, shrimp, scallops and raw oysters were awesome. Seating available on outside porch overlooking the bay.

Birds like to hang outside. They weren't a bother to me, but could be to someone else. Steamed shrimp at the bar were huge and delicious.

My family enjoyed a great dinner at Boss Oyster last week. The server was very nice and on top of her duties. The best oyster offering ( they have 17) was the wood grilled with garlic butter an aprmesean. Fantastic. I would go back as often as possible if in the area.

The oysters and flounder basket were great. Definitely will go again! Sometimes the place that looks like a dive has the best food.

I was visited area and decided to check local seafood restaurant. Based on the rating and reviews my choice fall at the Boss Oyster. Well, huge disappointment.

There are five different toppings ranging from cheese topping to toppings with bacon and spinach. All of them taste great!! An the price of the oysters is really convenient. The other seafood is excellent too. However,... More

This was our fourth visit mainly for oysters for my oyster fix. I had a dozen on the half shell and they were wonderful and I also had the fried oyster basket which was loaded with plump delicious lightly fried oysters. Washed it all down with a cold brew.

Staff was slow to take orders. Seems like a theme in Apalach. Food was fantastic. The chargrilled oysters were awesome! We also had steamed shrimp and key lime pie. Both were delicious!
