We stopped here for lunch and drinks with a motorcycle group of 15. My husband and I had the fish and chips. We enjoyed it because it was not greasy and not over breaded. The service was excellent but we thought it was a little pricey.

We had bar food and a few drinks here. The best fish and chips we ever had. This is only a small town so choice is limited but you will not be disappointed here.

Where is Robert Irvine? Oyster House in the outskirts of Everglades City is in need of an intervention. Perhaps the divine kind. What awesome real estate to waste on the fare that came to the table. Dont make our same mistake. Now with nothing notable to eat in Everglades City and all the eateries now either closed or run down-... More

Stayed at the River Wilderness condos, where we had a kitchen, but there are no supermarkets in town, so we went out for lunch. The Oyster House has a nice handicap ramp up to the main entrance and when you enter the front porch, you see what this well decorated place is about. Old whisky barrels line the porch, with...

Today's visit was very pleasant and enjoyable. My favorite is the seafood platter with Key Lime Pie. The waitress Kelly and the owner Mr Miller made this experience one I will forever cherish.

We've eaten at the Oyster House twice in the last month and enjoyed it very much. The grouper salad and sandwich are great. My husband had the fried shrimp and sweet potato fries, which he liked, but would have liked a dip for the fries. The scallops were excellent, as were the frog legs and gator bites. It's family owned,... More

Out with a business group. We had a friend sampler including hush puppy, frog legs and gator. Full bar with beer, wine, cocktails and frozen drinks. My Bay scallops were huge (still smaller than sea). They were perfect and juicy. Large portions. My co-worker had clam strips, also nice size. And grouper tropical salad... Wow! Key lime pie was delicious.... More

Prime rib available on weekends. Make a reservation and pick up a free bottle of wine coupon from your hotel before you go. Kitchen can get backed up, it took an hour from order to delivery. Not for those on a tight schedule. Uneven service. We ordered baked potatoes. Prime rib came with both mashed and baked. Some in our... More
