The service was good and very helpful for ideas of things to do in the area. The oysters were very good. The beer was seved in an 8 ounze galss and some of the ketgs were not tapped. It was a little anoying. I would go back for the oysters but not for beer or cocktails

Ate here with some friends after a Wooten's Air Boat tour. Nice family run restaurant with good quality food. Had burgers, shrimp and red snapper in our party, so all needs were met deliciously. The owner was very cordial, and one of his daughters waited on us. Also worth the stop to see some big game trophies on the walls.

We were happy to find the Oyster House Restaurant as we were looking forward to trying the local specialities. The Oyster House had wonderful local food and we feel there's nothing better than fresh.

We were hoping to find a local spot for lunch, a place with some atmosphere as well as good seafood. We got there just before the crowds on New Year's Eve day. Our server was a... More
