Great seafood

I really enjoyed the Cioppino stew, definitely homemade; lobster, whitefish, crab, mussels, baby clams and just the right amount of veggies.

I really am not sure why we waited. Maybe it was our visit to the Troff years ago when it was more bar then raw bar. Anyway, the boys are men now so we went for a late lunch. The special was a dozen oysters raw or steamed for 6.95 and the were tasty gems according to the guys. Our... More

Back at the Troff for a bucket of raw oysters this Thursday. They were salty and sweet. They were mixed sized and very tasty. The staff is great and the folks around the bar were very nice. The place is a pleasure to visit and one of the nicer oyster bars in the South.

Newly renovated, full bar or an ice cold draft beer and the oysters are always great! The menu has the regular items also so the non-seafood people will be happy too.

This is certainly not our first visit, but if you want good oysters, good shrimp or any good seafood at a reasonable price, this is your place. Oysters, at the most are usually $7.99 per doz and on Mondays and Saturdays they are $6.99 and they run weekly coupons in the Daily Commercials for same. We lucked in last night... More

Raw Oysters by the bucket, shucked right under your nose, is what makes this joint special. Loud music, sports on the TV, and a packed bar only adds to the fun. When you're finished with your meal, bartenders scrape the shells into a trough that runs the entire length of the circular bar. Cool!

Well we weren't sure where to go for a late lunch. Looking in Tavares, we saw the Oyster Troff. This is not a fancy place just a down home look and feel. I had the oysters, two of each oyster and were done three different ways. Outstanding. The wife and I shared a combo plate. Steamed clams, shrimp, crab legs,... More

We've been to several oyster bars in our travels; some have good raw oysters, but most have either a very limited non-oyster menu, or the "other" food is just barely okay - until we found The Oyster Troff in Eustis. Certainly not a romantic place with soft ambience; rather it's more of a large "bar joint" - quite noisy and... More

We liked the food. It was our first time eating Oysters and the staff was very friendly and helped us in ordering and eating them. We have not been back do to the smell though. We almost did not eat here but the reviews were very good so we did and had a nice meal. We might go back well... More
