Not worth the trip

We had the fish and chips that came with one hush puppy and ordered the cole slaw on the side. Our meal was served promptly and hot but it lacked taste. The cole slaw was... read more

We didn't actually stay to eat because it was so incredibly overpriced. We went off season so they should know enough to not gouge, but they didn't. Some prices were higher than the ritzy restuarants on Marco Island!

We visited the West Entrance to the Everglades National Park. While waiting the staff at the Mangrove Boat trip office suggested the Oyster House. Eight of us dropped in and the food was excellent. The fried and sauteed alligator were very good, the alligator tacos were fantastic. The staff was friendly and the service was fast.

We visited in July and this restaurant seemed to be the only one open. It looks great from the outside and if you are into taxidermy you will enjoy the abundance of animals hanging from the wall. I like to see the positives in most places, but this restaurant wasn't very good. The Mexican waitress that served us was lovely,... More

Terrible food and outrageous prices are what you'll find at this place. Our food was fried in month old oil and my wife's Grouper was broiled to a rubbery consistency?

The service and the food was good. It was just a bit overpriced but I would go back again! I would recommend for groups of all sizes.

We ate there a few times during our stay. The food was good. Not fabulous, but good. I had fried shrimp a couple of times and it was okay. My husband really enjoyed the grouper. The servers were extremely nice. It was a really unique place and we did enjoy it. I'd go there again.

My wife and I stopped by the Oyster House on our way back to Marco Island after exploring the everglades. We were very pleased with our lunch, great food and cold beer.
