Great service - cool atmosphere

If you only have time for one meal, it has to be here! Seriously this was the best seafood ever! We grabbed seats at the bar (the table list was a pretty long wait) and had a hard time deciding on our entrees. The bartender, Staci, was incredibly attentive for having a big bar by herself while every seat was... More

You have to understand people here are authentic and have fun with the food. If you need in and out service you will be in a shock. We came in they were saying an hour wait but two spots opened at the bar. I had a beer within 2 minutes already. The food was beyond delicious. I had the oyster... More

Had lunch here and it never fails to be delicious! Raw and baked oysters are our favorites - boneless chicken wings are delicious as well.

Had lunch at the oyster bar toward the back of the restaurant this year. It was great. I had a grouper po-boy and fries. A very large portion of grouper for the $9.99 price. The oyster shuckers at bar were friendly and very good at what the do. Service and food was excellent.

Long wait for a table but well worth that wait and we enjoyed beer while we waited. We ate oysters several different ways, fried green tomatoes and the most delicious blackened scallops. Great place to go but be sure you give yourself time to enjoy the whole experience!

We stopped by again on our trip to the beach and they never disappoint. Great oysters and cold beer. Yum!! Tried the fried oysters and shrimp this year tasty. Not greasy always a highlight of our trip

Nothing beats cold beer with fresh oysters on the half shell. Add a decent price, a shabby chic place to hang, and a waiter named Jamison who instantly becomes your friend and your at Dusty's.

Loved this place...we sat at the bar b/c there was over a hour wait on a table and I got to try and fell in love with oysters. The guys at the bar made us feel very welcome. Will definitely be back food is great!
