Seafood (catfish, fish & chips, coconut shrimp) was cooked perfectly, including the sides as well. It was a very crowded place in the late afternoon, just before the "early bird" specials expired.

Disappointing. The atmosphere had senior smeared all over it. I am a senior in 2015 not 1970. As a salt-aholic I was amazed that I had found almost everything on the menu over the top salty. That was a first. That being said, the service was 5 *, cheerful & attentive.

We met some friends from out of town and everyone left happy. The waitress was very attentive, the kitchen was fast and the meals were great! My wife had the crab stuff flounder and loved the hollandaise sauce as well as the rest of her meal. Two of us had hogfish, and although many other review talk of this being... More

Love raw oysters, however, have had some digestive issues so apprehensive to order. I ordered the coconut tilapia. Not so good...no taste & watery. Service was Grand as always. Next time I will order fish not fried.

We had a nice dinner here and enjoyed it very much. I had a lobster specail that was very reasonably priced. My husband had fried oysters and liked them. We went a little early and were seated right away. It did get busy later. Our server was friendly and helpful. Liked the house margaritas!

We have been fans of the Oyster Bar for many years. Nothing seems to change and that is good. On November 25, 2014 we reserved for a table of 12. This was a get together for long time friends. We arrived on time and the hostess was delighted to see us and took us immediately to our table. Our server... More

the only thing about this restaurant that was not "very good" is the crowds during the winter when the "snowbirds" have all arrived
