Been here several times. On my most recent visit, I was a little disappointed. Got oysters on the half shell, then my meal didn't come out until 30 minutes after I finished my oysters, and it was lukewarm. I'm not sure if the food runner for the evening forgot to bring it out, the waitress didn't check on it when... More

We stopped in here on out way to mobile to try the man v food seafood platter, the service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious. we would definitely recommend the alligator bites with the spicy Cajun dip - not chewy at all and very moreish!! The restaurant also had a great view of the river

We had our son's wedding rehearsal dinner here and had a private room. A buffet was served per our request, and you can pick 3 or 4 entrees. Their shrimp au gratin is to die for!. I never had cheese grits before, and was pleasantly surprised by how good it was. Every item that we picked on the buffet was... More

I've been eating here since the 1990's, when they were in their first location. I think they have given up a lot of quality over the years. It seems now more like a destination restaurant rather than a place to go for really great food. I ate here a year ago and thought it wasn't very good, and now that... More

Food was amazing and the service was bit slow but not an issue. We ordered raw and cooked oysters both were perfect. Gumbo was delicious and Salad bar was great too..

Clerks at gift shop (USS Alabama) suggested both Felix's and the Oyster House. We sadly opted for the Oyster House. My fish was extremely thin and overcooked. My shrimp was undercooked; thus, I had to return it for additional time in the kitchen. The next day we decided to try Felix's and we were NOT disappointed in anyway! Wish we... More

We ate there today at lunch. First let me say the service was slow. The salad bar was good. 3 of us ordered the steamed shrimp/oyster lunch plate ($15). 4 shriveled up, gritty oysters and about 6 overcooked shrimp - clearly overpriced for inferior food. I went back to salad bar after my meal as I was still hungry! Now... More

My husband and I ate here on a Friday afternoon, we were seated right away. It was decorated nicely inside and out. It is on stilts so you have to climb stairs but there is also an elevator. They have a little open area play area under the restaurant so the kids won't get to bored if you have bit... More
