This place was pretty basic as far as looks and frills. I was pretty uncertain when we drove up, but we liked it so much, we ended up making the 15 minute drive out from our hotel to go again during our 3 day trip to Orlando. The oysters were amazing. We had some of the other foods too and... More

Set in a building made to look like a ship, this spot is high on character and low on frills. The clientele is everyone and anyone-- all there for the delicious raw oysters, steamed seafood and bar. If you sit at the bar, have fun flinging your shells into the trough along the bar. Old school video games are fun... More

Although the oysters weren't as salty as I like, this is as authentic as it gets. It's like sitting ist a fish house and having the help shuck a bucket of oysters just for you, right where you pull up a stool. The crayfish were prepared well and tasty. Not fancy, wear your jeans and not your best ones either.... More

Great food service and great food! Only thing we can complain about was the lack of salt on the table, and turns out we didn't need it.

Let me start by saying. ..the simplicity of this place is part of the charm. ....We came in because of other trip advisor reviews and did they get it right. The outside is a cute little boat and once you step inside it's a no frills oyster haven. .....Kim our personal shucker is AMAZING...she is personable knowledgeable and fast. She... More

A coworker I was traveling with had been here before and raved about the oysters. The rave was everything I expected! Great oysters on the half shell shucked right in front of you. Yes, this is a dive and not very appealing to look at. However, this is one of those places you look past that and come for the... More

I usually do not write reviews but this is one I have to share. This was the best experience I have had at a restaurant EVER!!! Our family decided that we would only eat at places that were on Diners Dives and Drives. This is one of the places. We pulled up and no lie we sat in the parking... More

Great traditional oyster bar. The wait staff shucks them and you eat them by the dozen or by the bucket. Also great peel and eat shrimp. You peel. Wings are also available. Ice cold beer is served the way it should be... by the glass or pitcher. The staff is friendly, courteous and very pleasing.
