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

The food is delish here and fresh! You get all the slaw and potatoes you can possibly eat, but be careful not to fill up on those so you can't enjoy the great seafood. Everybody sits at the bar which is huge. If you have a large group, it might take a while to be seated but it's worth it.... More

Monday's are either 25 cent oysters or 50 cents. These guys have specials like these all week long. The shrimp and grits is very good as well. Make sure you get there right at 5 or before or you will be waiting. They also have a shrimp special and crab legs special certain nights of the week. The seating is... More

Casual atmosphere with bar style seating. The service is always very helpful and friendly! Food tastes fresh from the ocean! They have homemade fresh deserts...yum! This is our first choice for seafood and fun with friends. We have been there many times and never disappointed.

Great food always, and good atmosphere. My 7 yr old son loves sitting up at the bar! Service is good and everything is freshly made. All u can eat crab legs are the best flavour I have had in a long time.

Everything we ordered, from the ribeye to the fresh oysters were very, very good. The calamari were not worth getting, looked more like rubber bands than anything else. The stuffed mushrooms were fantastic, you should try these. All the tables sit up high like a bar. In fact, most of the seats are at the bar. Any way, if you... More

My wife and I have two friends who are always coming up great restaurants off the beaten path. Some of them should stay in the wilderness....NOT THIS ONE!! Full Moon served up one of the best gourmet seafood dinners of Stuffed Mahi-mahi in my life. The atmosphere was really fun. No tables, just U-shaped bars running through this strip mall... More

This was my second visit to this establishment and both trips delighted with the quality of the seafood. My favorite are the peeled and deveined shrimp with steamed oysters. Each time the oysters were large, clean and steamed perfectly. The shrimp were also large, seasoned and also steamed just right. Orders come with slaw and boiled potatoes. Sometimes there is... More

This is a favorite 'go to' place when we're wanting fresh seafood in a quirky bar type setting. The food is always great & the staff are personable....Sometimes on the weekend, there's a fairly long wait for a seat at the bar (& there's only a bar, no tables) but it's worth the wait!
