Handled a BIG group of us and several other big groups from our convention very efficiently. Staff were very patient and friendly. Food was very average.

We stop in here on our annual Florida trip. The staff is always friendly, neat decor, fun tidbits on the wall to look at, overlooking water where you may see a gator or two. Food is great and authentic.

We had an awesome time our waiter was Sommer. Who made our visit even better. The grilled oysters are the best I've ever eaten.

We stop at this location from time to time and as long as we beat the crowd it is a family pleaser every time. My wife who is not a seafood fan is always glad with here selection when we are done. The cheese grits are good and our waitress was very friendly. We will be back.

Service at this place was great. Several states were visiting for dinner as part of our national meeting. We had a great time and I must say the food was pretty good as well. The my could have had more a limitless more favor but it's worth visiting.

Packed solid on a Tuesday, way packed, and I made the mistake of sitting at the bar. The bartender was named Rosa, maybe she had an off night because was terribly rude and snarky. Rosa killed my good time feeling, that's why I am so grumpy right now. I went out of my way to visit this place, there are... More

We have eaten at the different OOH locations in the area for years including the one here in Spanish Fort. The quality and service are usually very good, but the must have been having a bad day. We got the fried flounder as always, but it had a strong fishy taste this time. We ate it but weren't impressed.

We ate at the Oyster House with our four children. It was delicious! There was no wait for a table when we got there but there is a little playground underneath the restaurant for the kids to play on if you do have to wait. I ordered fried shrimp and it was some of the best I've ever had. My... More

Some restaurants simply puzzle me. This place advertises that it has been in business since 1983. The parking lot was packed on a Tuesday night so it seemed like a safe bet. We were told there was a half hour wait but 5 minuted later the hostess came to show us our table. Since this is an oyster house I... More

I went here for one thing -- oysters on the half shell, and I was not disappointed. They were incredible. Fresh, slightly salty, just what I was looking for. A great quick lunch on a trip to the Gulf Coast. The server was very efficient and professional.
