There were 11 of us who went there for dinner. The food was good but not outstanding. Some of us had stone crabs and they were really good but a bit pricey for what you got. Rest of the group ordered various seafood dishes. The biggest problem was the slow service and although there were 11 of us it took... More

We went for snow crabs, but given the market price of 39 for dinner, settled for grouper, mine on salad and my husband's with baked potato. Both truly delicious, fresh, tender, perfectly seasoned, yum!

Nothing over the top amazing but we enjoyed our dinner there. A bit expensive for seafood but good prices on other food. Good service, short staffed on day we went (Easter) but server was excellent.

Our family group took the national park mangroves boat tours but because the boats only hold 6 people we split into two groups. We all met up after the tours at the Oyster House for lunch because it's a short walk from the visitor center. But the food was expensive and not especially great. Mostly baskets of fried food which... More

The Oyster House is all show and no substance. Typically places like this have a great history, interesting decor, and amazing food, BUT the Oyster House fails once you past the facade. It is right on the main strip going into Chokoloskee so you are like a moth drawn to the light. You can not help but stop and try... More

We ordered the veggie burger and seafood baskets for three of us. The seafood was fresh and well cooked and generous servings. The room was fun for all of us with stuffed animals and lots of other items on the walls. Waitresses were great very friendly and helpful. Only downside was the side dishes - salad and vegetables which were... More

Ate here a couple of years ago so returned for dinner this visit. Atmosphere includes lots of stuffed animal heads on the walls. Service was poor with a server who hardly spoke English, and had to return to a manager several times for information about the menu and dishes. Wife had stone crabs and I ordered fish. Fish was undercooked... More

Backwoods decor. Had to wait a while for a table. Wait staff did quite well in getting us seated. Good food.

We got rained out of a boat ride and stopped here to eat in lieu of boating. The walls contain lots of knick knacks and taxidermy. The food was good and the drinks were potent. It was a comfy restaurant and I would recommend you stop and check it out.
