Folks love this place and it is usually packed both day and night. Large seafood menu and attentive servers and bartenders. Food was average at best but the drinks were second to none.

This was my first time visiting Dusty's. The food and staff were great but the margarita wasn't very good. Overall I had a pleasant experience. I will definitely be back.

They advertise this place as Warm Beer,Lousy Food and Ugly Waitresses.It is just the opposite.Cold Beer,Good Food and Attractive Waitresses.It is a bit rustic inside and you may have to wait but it is worth it.Best Oysters in town,fast service and reasonable prices.A fun place to eat.Give it a try.

We've driven by this place a few times because the line was out the door, but if you catch them right as they open and before the lunch crowd the oysters are worth it! I can't find chargrilled oysters anywhere else in PCB, Dusty's bakes theirs but it's just as good. Those and the raw oysters are all we get... More

This is a happening place, everyone is having a good time. Service is fast considering how many customers are in there. If you sit at the bar you'll have a good time with the barkeepers, I always get a dozen oysters and a beer for about $10.50. You can't go wrong with that anytime

Hostess was rude during our dinning. She kept looking at us after we had cocktail's after dinner. Wanting us to leave so she could free up the table for more money. Guess that's the fame of the game here.The hushpuppies were Black and burnt. Why say anything when you have waited an hour for your table ? Don't go with... More

This place is always crowded, and deservedly so. Food is excellent, atmosphere is fun, although noisy, and service is good. Oysters are outstanding and fried seafood is among the best in the area.

I hate to rate this place too high cos it is too popular now as it is😳 Love to sit at the oyster bar and watch the shuckers. They are always great, your glass is never empty and you can go solo and not feel awkward. I go there on vacation but they always ask what I've been up to... More

I was very pleased with the quality of the sweet, plump raw oysters....washed down with a cold beer. Others in party enjoyed hamburger, fish and chips, chicken salad. Pleased with quality and quantity...you don't leave feeling hungry. Great pub atmosphere with the dollar bills hanging all over the place with sayings from satisfied customers. Very popular place.....may have to wait... More

And for good reason. Happy hour rates not great, but add to the reason to go. Oysters and raw shrimp served very quickly, and were some of the best. Hamburger is a B+. Served with fries, which were great. $2.50 for a 16oz Yuengling, served in a plastic cup -very fitting for the atmosphere. Place is usually packed, but worth... More
