We ate at the Full Moon Oyster bar last night for the first time. Our group ranged in age from 6 to 86 and we all enjoyed it. I had the Tuesday night special of all you can eat crab legs and they were great and they kept my plate full. Seating is all bar seating so we were worried... More

......Go to Full Moon Oyster Bar. I've had a lot of seafood, but have never eaten oysters as delicious as their Grilled Oysters. In fact, every oyster dish I've had here has been outstanding. Be sure to try the Crab Bisque; thick and full of crab chunks. The atmosphere is very casual and friendly. Be sure to get there early,... More

Favorite place for fresh oysters. I like mine lightly steamed. Expect a wait on weekends but not so bad on weekdays. Food always terrific with beer and wine specials too. Seating is at bar so you need a corner if eating with friends. Servers are all regulars and invested in their work....and it shows!

I suppose they are all the same. Ordered takeout from the lunch menu. Oyster P'boy and a crab cake sandwich. Both were bland and tasteless. You would never know there were oysters in the P'boy. Same with the crab cake sandwich, the best part was the bun. Sides were good, potato salad and cold slaw. At the last minute I... More

Nice place, you sit around a bar while you eat, there are no tables......the fish is excellent and tastes soooo fresh. As you sit around the bar you can talk to your neighbors and check out what their food looks like....everything looks so good. They are known for their oysters. the Shrimp and Grits is awesome!! The atmosphere is not... More

The seafood selections are fresh and certainly well prepared. Both innovative seafood creations and the usual steamed fare. All seating is around a bar and the "call ahead" reservation that they claimed held no benefit to avoiding a wait. The bar seating certainly isn't everyone's idea of a relaxing dinner experience as the focus is on the wait staff scurrying... More

Don't bring kids - all seating is around the bar, it's no place for kids. The iced tea is fresh, the beer is cold, the desserts are great and the wait staff are excellent! I am always amazed at how easily they serve the crowd and keep smiles on their faces. It is the freshest seafood you can get in... More

This place may be a bit pricey to some but the seafood is so fresh. Crab legs are great on Tuesday night ! Some of the best shrimp and grits in the area. Place is too small, and i wouldn't take kids there. Not a place if you are looking for a great atmosphere but def a place if you... More

For the most part was good. Menu was a little restricted. I felt rushed because seating is so limited and there were soooooo many people waiting for a seat. We didn't know it was AYCE crab legs. They were pricey but good. I was very disappointed they didn't have fried shrimp. The garlic shrimp were extremely garlicky which was fine... More

This place is basically a family tradition for us. All the seating is bar style, so don't expect to sit around a family table eating oysters. The bar seating is one of the best parts of the atmosphere though. We try to go at least a few times every oyster season and can finish off about a peck each. Oysters... More
