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

This place is known for the fire grilled oysters. I went for a dozen and could barely finish them, they were big boys. I also had the fried green tomatoes with remoulade, perfectly done. Will be back here. I was amazed to get a table at the window for a party of one, at a six top. Granted I arrived... More

It has a nice fish camp feeling and some great seafood on the menu. It was fun to mix our own seafood cocktail sauce using the ingredients provided on the table (and help from the wait staff). We really enjoyed our meal and and hope to return some day when we get back to Mobile.
