It's on the frontage road and looks kinda messy but once you walk in, the ambiance is sooo cute! Dark paneling, fishing decor and lamps decorate the bar area - which is where you want to be. Find a spot, order some beers and ORDER OYSTERS! They are chucked fast and brought to your table with horseradish and sauce. The... More

The seafood was not fresh and fried food was overly breaded. I would not go back or recommend. Red Lobster- a chain would be a better choice.

This is a place that we always take friends and family that lives out of town. They have fresh seafood and oysters and their beer is always cold. What more could you ask for

They have been around for many years. They are known for their fresh oysters, cold beer and LOCAL seafood. Our group particularly enjoyed the fried dill pickles and oysters rocker fellow.

We went here for lunch while staying in Destin. A local had recommended when another place was closed. What a great place for oysters! Absolutely the best. We had very good service. Can't wait to go back! If you like oysters, this is the place to go.

Had a seafood platter and gumbo soup both were very good. Laid back atmosphere, very friendly and timely service by the staff.

The VP of my company wanted to eat here so that's what we did. I ordered the dozen raw to start the night off. It was good; exactly what I expected from raw oysters. Then I ordered a grouper sandwich. Wow, these guys can certainly mess up a fish sandwich. It, (assuming it was grouper....questionable), came in a cheap hamburger... More
