Great Shrimp

We stopped here on our way to Florida and found a fantastic restaurant. The shrimp was so fresh it must have been caught that morning. I also had the scallops, which were a bit over cooked, but not too bad.

My husband and I had the grilled chicken sandwich and our son had fried shrimp and fish. The food was great and the service was awesome too. Can't wait to go back!!!!

One of the best seafood restaurants in Dothan. If you are visiting the Circle City, this is a must stop. We went during lunch and had the seafood platter and couple of dozens of oysters. They give you more than enough food for the price. I will definitely return for another visit.

I asked several people where the best Seafood food was in Dothan and was told that there was none that was really good. I was told that Hunts was the oldest and had been here a long time. I tried it. I had Raw Oysters, fried Shrimp & Fried oysters. The Shrimp were prey good but that's about all. I... More

I can only rate the oyster bar itself in the back, not the dining-in restaurant, although it looked very nice from my view of it. On the two occasions I was working in Columbus, GA., I made the 106 mile journey to Hunts specifically for the oyster bar. The oysters on the half-sell are excellent. Both trips were well worth...

Have eaten here for 30 years, whenever in the city.....famous for good food and service. The fried shrimp were super fresh and large. The oysters on the half shell were perfect and were so very fresh.... cant find them like this just anywhere. Fried oysters were perfect. A wait for Valentines evening but was so worth the wait!

My wife and I tried this place based on the reviews and the location was close to our motel. Doubt we will ever try it again. I ordered fried oysters. If was as if they opened a can of "pieces of oysters" and fried them. Some of the pieces were smaller than a pea. There was not one whole oyster... More

This was the perfect place for two businessmen on the road. Hunt's has been around long enough and is quirky enough to have the look and feel of a local institution, but not one that is self-aware enough to be considered hip by either the establishment or patrons. From the moment we walked in through the wrong door in the... More

This restaurant was friendly with fantastic food at a fair price. They feature oysters and two guys were shucking them in the back section the entire time we were there. I also had the scallops which were very large and sweet. Friendly bartender and servers.

Hunts is a family owned establishment with dependable service and the food is always good. They have good specials before 6pm. Overall just a good place for seafood.
