Just spent 10 days at PCB and ate at Dusty's. Yes it is loud, the wait was long, and the atmosphere is great. Wife and I had a scallop dish and it was the best we had on the beach. The onion rings are good too. If your an oyster lover (we are not) this is the place for you!

It's always packed...good sign..right? Wrong. Totally overrated. Wait is long. Service is minimal. Food was bland and greasy. Bartender was - in her words - pissed off because she had been there too long. The only redemption was the pecan cobbler which we took home although they charged us 50 cents for the container.....really? Spent about $60 for two of... More

Dusty's Oyster Bar is loads of fun, especially for the younger crowd. Nothing fancy about this place just good food and fun. Be prepared, it tends to be a bit loud in here as the bartender and oyster shuckers hoot and holler back and forth and hit the cymbals above their heads all in good fun. Also, they serve beer...

Fun place to meet friends. Good is great and priced reasonably. Excellent oysters and shrimp. Not into seafood...they have the best chicken wings. Great happy hour...get there early, the place is usually packed.

A local gem at the Beach. This is the one place that my family repeats every time we go to the area. We stay about 30 minutes away and make the drive. It is well worth it. Casino oysters is a favorite of ours. Don't go expecting to walk right in. There is a wait always, but well worth it.... More

Great seafood and atmosphere if you like small local restaurants as opposed to a chain. Kinda noisy but that just adds to the fun. Everybody there seemed to be having a great time and enjoying the food.

Great oysters and a fun place and staff. The deco is crazy and a lot to take in which was half the fun. Very very busy. Plan on grabbing a drink and waiting.

My brother had a friend that recommended this place. We came with a large party but really did not wait that long. Yes the place is kind of small and yes it gets kind of loud. Don't oh there expecting a fancy seafood place. But, if you are looking for some good food, music and a few drinks - try... More
