Loud juke box. Draft beer. Oysters any way you want. Generally crowded summer or winter. I favor the fish & chips, others rave about the hamburgers.

LOVED this restaurant! The food was so good. I had the Rockefeller oysters and they were awesome! Also the beer is really cheap and they have happy hours on the oysters! We go multiple times when we come to the beach every year. Good atmosphere. You won't pay that much and you'll have a great time!

Went to Dusty's on the recommendation of friends that indicated that it was very different. It is more of a dingy old fashioned bar that is extremely noisy and crowded. The drinks are cheap and the wait is very long. We were told the wait would be 20 minutes for a table of 4 but after 45 minutes and watching... More

I found Dusty's on Trip Advisor. I was looking for good oysters on the half shell. Dusty's fit that description. I arrived about 6:15 pm to find people lined up outside the door. I thought, "this is good; this is bad." I found it backed up inside. Making my way to the check-in desk, I needed seat for one; the... More

This restaurant doesn't live up to the hype. The oysters were good not great, had shells in several out of a dozen. The fried mushrooms are frozen, typical bar food. Very loud, not a place for children at all.

If oysters are you thing and you are in the PCB area then head to Dusty's for reasonably priced and very fresh oysters. You can sit at the bar and be entertained by the shuckers. The decor is interesting...hundreds (thousands?) of dollar bills are glued to ever imaginable surface including the ceiling. Very fun and good!

The food was great, Amber was a very good server and took care of us during a very busy night. The experience was ruined by the vulgar music on the jukebox that was allowed to be played on the restaurant speaker system. The management should control what is available on the playlist and not allow the vulgarity to ruin what... More

We ate here twice, all food and service were amazing. The oyster's were awesome and so was the shrimp, we could have eaten here every day. It is by far the best place we have found in pcb for seafood. Can't wait to come back on our next trip
