Had a nice chat with the kitchen mgr and he gave us a rundown on the history of the place. There seafood is shipped in from the gulf daily, can't get much fresher. We... read more

We went by for a quick meal before on our way home from Cathedral Caverns. We had raw oysters and the oyster sampler. The sampler has several types of cooked oysters on half shell. Very good!

I have eaten the Guntersville location before and it was a good experience, but my husband and I went yesterday (6/6/15) and the food was definitely not good! I had the charbroiled oysters, which were rubbery (I wish I had sent them back) and my husband had the ribeye, which was almost cooked perfectly, but underseasoned. The service was very... More

Do no expect reasonable prices and excellent food as advertised. It is not true. Close to a major hotel, Hampton Inn, but not worth visiting.

First of all you are not on the Gulf, but do not let that stop you. A good variety of dishes. This chain has a good rep especially for their oysters. I much prefer their other dishes. Had blackened Redfish with shrimp good combination. Their seafood augratin is a great dish. Staff friendly, really try to do a great job.

The best thing on menu is the chilled shrimp appetizer. The fish is not thrilling. It all tastes the same and just not very good. The staff is always great though. If you like oysters this is a good place. I can't vote on them as I don't eat them but others seem to like them here.

We had dinner after reading the reviews here and we're disappointed. We felt the food was average. Service was slow and the place was NOT busy.
