Good food, as always

We try to make the Original Oyster House a stop every visit to the area. The food is always good. This trip the Oysters were the best I've eaten. The wait staff is great!

What a great place to eat seafood, ginormous portions, you will not go away hungry. The prices are good. The atmosphere is wonderful, the staff are awesome. Great place for couples and families alike. If you get there with a large group be prepared to wait up to 45 minutes for a seat.

I will start by saying that I am not a huge seafood fan, but all of my family loves it. We went for an early dinner, and I am very glad we did as the wait list gets full very quickly! We all got different meals from grouper, oysters, tilapia, and the shrimper's delight with fried cheese sticks and fried... More

We have eaten here in the past and it was very good however, I was disappointed this time. I ordered the shrimp stuffed with crab. The crab had so much breading I couldn't taste the crab. The shrimp was tasty, baked potato fine but the cole slaw had too much pepper for my taste. My husband ordered a fried platter... More

My husband and I had lunch at this restaurant Thursday, 5/14. He had raw and fried oysters and I had grilled and fried shrimp. Both of us thoroughly enjoyed the meal and would recommend this restaurant for excellent seafood. I saw others who had ordered fried flounder and they said it was fabulous. I wish I'd ventured from shrimp and... More

Our entire golfing group stopped for a late lunch. Great service for our large group. No stop at an oyster house is complete without oysters. The fire grilled oysters in the half shell were delicious. I also had a gulf shrimp combo and it was very good also. Good place to eat if you like seafood and rustic oyster house... More
