I always go here because you can get seafood by the pound without the fries, slaw, ect I do miss Scotty-O. He has been a fixture since we started going there in the 1990's

What happened last week was awful! Our experience was at Dusty's was the worst dining experience in our 24 years of marriage! I will never return nor... More

Dusty's was suggested to us by someone we met at the city pier. We were told it was a local fave and there would be a wait. We waited about 20 minutes and it was worth the wait. A fun atmosphere dollar bills hanging from the ceiling, on walls... unusual & fun vibe. Our waitress was really nice & fun... More

I love this place. Outstanding wings, fabulous raw oysters and cheap beer. Sit at the shucker bar if you get a chance. You can't beat this place for attmosphere, price and food quality.

On the way back to the Atlantic coast from Pensacola Beach, we drove US 98 and stopped in for lunch at Dusty's. By the appearance of the parking lot, I really expected some really great seafood but maybe my hometown restaurants have us spoiled. We both ordered fried shrimp, which was fresh seafood but really overly breaded so we had... More

This place looked busy and was hopping with locals. The oysters were big. but not especially tasty. When my wife was served just eleven oysters on her tray, one of the managers looked put out when we brought it to his attention. He did give her one more, but not a great place for oysters.

This restaurant was recommended to us by a couple that comes to the area often. They had warned us that there would be a wait since it is where all the locals go...The wait to be seated was around 45 minutes on a Wednesday night, but we sat outside and made friends with others also waiting. My husband ordered frog... More
