There aren't many restaurants in Everglades City but fortunately the Oyster House is a good one. My wife and I have been here 4 times in the past 3 years and have always enjoyed it. I have always had the fried 'gator. This time, at the suggestion of Sadie, both my wife and I tried the sautéed 'gator and it... More

Picked this place purely by chance, no complaints. My wife tried frog legs fort the first time- she liked them! Place has a LOT of old time history/pictures on the wall. We ate early Sat afternoon so the place wasn't busy. The people who did come in seemed to know exactly what they wanted- wasn't too much menu looking. The... More

Cooked the fish we caught and it was excellent. Everything else was ordinary. Vegetables overcooked and very limited.

The food was OK but one of the seafood items tasted a little off. I found out just how off it was about 4 hours later when I was sick to my stomach for several hours. We travel all over the world and eat seafood in many countries but for some reason I only get bad seafood in the U.S.A.... More

Back of the house: clam chowder and hush puppies have a funny taste. Grouper is never cooked thoroughly. Front of the house: great service.

I was afraid going during the off season that the food would be old and not fresh or have lots of choices! Well I was wrong! Full menu! Super fresh food and a very A commendation waitress! The food was super hot super fresh and wonderfully prepared!

Visited this restaurant during the low season. It's one of the few that's open at this time of year. The Florida lobster was very good. We also had a piece of "no bake, no egg" Key Lime Pie which was yummy. The decor is what you'd expect from a touristy seafood restaurant.

My husband and I decided to go to the bar side of the restaurant. There were mostly locals on that side, very friendly people. We had drinks and appetizers. The crab cakes were very good and the raw oysters were very fresh. They make good drinks. Next time we come back to Everglades city we will come here to eat... More

After spending 2 hours at the Smallwood Store, we were hungry and in the mood for some local food. We were the first ones there that day. I had a sampler platter with shrimp, clams, fish, oysters, hush puppy and fries. It was all battered and fried as I expected but I could taste the freshness of the food, even... More
