A genuine taste of old Northwest Florida

We have visited here many times over the years. The food is excellent. My husband especially likes the raw oysters. It's our first stop in town even before we check into our room.

We have eaten here for years when in this area for vacation. I have never been disappointed. If you want just good, ole down-home fried seafood, this is the place. I enjoy the fried crab claws off the appetizer menu--plenty for a meal! All of the sandwiches are good, expecially the triggerfish. Our granddaughter loves the fried catfish! Great place... More

Food was good and reasonably priced! We had a dozen fresh oysters shucked in front of us.I had a nice fish entree suggested by the bar wait staff and my spouse had gumbo that was the die for.

We stopped in because our first choice was too busy and what a treat this was! The Louisianna oysters were fresh and delicious and my husband's shrimp were awesome. The gumbo was some of the best we have had in a long time. We will definitely put this place on our list to revisit next time we are FWB.

We are here our last night in town. We got there early because a storm ran us off the beach so I won't review the atmosphere. But the food was amazing! And our waitress was great. Husband had crab legs which were very fresh and sweet. Not spongy at all like some can be. I had steamed oysters which I... More

We stopped in while on vacation. The hotel was a block away, and went for a late lunch. The parking lot still was almost full, but we walked right in, and got a seat. It is an older building, but had all kinds of vintage pics of the area, to add to the atmosphere. I ordered a bowl of gumbo... More

We went in during an off time (2:00) and had the restaurant to ourselves. The service was friendly and the food was delicious - fresh and hot! We were on the patio on the water. Even though it was a hot day there was a cool breeze. We will definitely be back.

Sit at the bar to get more than the 12 oysters. Make the effort to make friends with the bartender as we had 18 on our third dozen oysters and man they were GOOD!!!
