Fine place to eat something

Nice services, lunch menu ok. We had gator basket and a gator burger. The first was better but nothing extraordinary. Nice service

Stopped in with a tour group and what a horrible experience. Since they had already collected our money for the lunch (including the tip) they treated our group like garbage. The waitress's were rude and could care less if we were satisfied or not. Some of the elderly guests in our group had asked for ice water, it was a... More

That style of lots of stuff on the walls is getting tired and old. I suppose it is fun for the kids to look at but all I kept thinking about was how clean was it really inside? Kind of junky and old and maybe the walls need to be refreshed? Food was good but nothing fabulous to rave about.... More

We drove to Everglades City as they are known for their good seafood and decided to try The Oyster House. I ordered and repeatedly, I was told that the item I wanted was not available. My husband thought it was safe with ordering a hamburger and his hamburger was one that came out of a plastic bag which you might... More

Stopped for lunch with a tour group. Didn't have our reservation, waited an hour to be seated, except for our waitress majority of staff was rude! Sadly, the food was cold; not worth the time or money.

The Oyster House Restaurant looked quaint and rustic. The menu looked interesting and the waiting staff seemed friendly. We had a rushed lunch on a tour despite food being ordered ahead but I would expect a small party would have a very different experience. The alligator appetiser was a tasty novelty the grouper salad excellent and the sweet potato fries... More

With limited options in the area, we ate here twice. Service, food and atmosphere are not bad, but not great.

We stopped for lunch on the way somewhere. We started with a fried alligator app, very tender and tasty. The fried shrimp was also excellent; the sweet potato fries were good; the hush puppy nothing special. They have many stuffed trophies, from fish to birds to a panther and a black bear (not to mention the bison head?!) The only... More

Although we waited some time for what turned out to be an excellent lunch that was down to the fact that the restaurant was very busy over the lunch period (good sign). We were in no hurray so we were able to enjoy the ambiance. Worth a visit if you are in the area

Returned to Everglades City only to find my favorite place closed- the desk clerk at our hotel recommended the Oyster House less than a mile away- it was like stepping back in time - while the bar is handled by bathe waitresses- everything is great- we opted for the broiled platter which was scrumptious after the oysters Rockefeller- this town...
