Great place to get oysters on the half shell

My husband and I went here because it was recommended by the hotel but even at that I still look up restaurants on Trip Advisor when we go somewhere we haven't been before. This one got good reviews and I was craving some oysters on the half shell. We also called and asked the price since the price... read more

2 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We've been here before other winters and brought a guest with us this time. What happened? The oysters have shrunk, had shells in the oyster Rockefeller and the bacon was not real, but very salty bacon bits. Loved our waitress though and she made us feel really at home. Onion rings were crispy but rather bland and the all dressed... More

Food was ok but restaurant very noisy. Seats in booths are not comfortable and I dislike plastic flatware. Service was good.

It is very local, very beachy, very "don't wear good clothes here" but it is PCB. We didn't go for the ambience, nor the decor (dollars hanging from the ceiling for no apparent reason) but for the local seafood. Our waitress was nothing but wonderful...friendly, good advise and direction, explained the deal and was always available....she gets stars. However, what... More

Excellent service, great food, and generous portions. Also one of the most reasonably priced in the area for the quality of the food. Would definitely go back.

We come here every winter. I love this place, fast service, fun place and great oysters at a very good price. If there's a problem its the lack of parking.

The restaurant is smaller than what looks outside. Not fond of the interior setting. Pros: Best baked oysters Good strawberry frozen daiquiris Cons: Overly priced Staff members left a lot to be desired

We live here, so We go to Dusty's at least once a month for the best food, service, and Old Fla local atmosphere ever! Always recommend Dusty's whenever tourists ask where they should go for local flavor, the best oysters cooked to order, or shrimp PO Boys, or catch of the day. It's usually crowded, but worth the wait. Come... More

Great overall experience. Raw oysters were good and reasonably priced. I had the fried grouper po-boy and my wife had the clam strip po-boy. Both were very good. Waitress was very good. Will go back for sure.
