fun atmosphere

except for the wait (it's very popular), once seated the food is great and so is the atmosphere. Tuesday is "all you can eat crab legs". they are awesome, so get there early. not a lot of standing room

Took my family on friday night early, ordered the surf and turf the steak was very well prepared and delicious, the lobster on the other hand was like rubber and over cooked to the point where you could not get it out of the shell. Our server was really great, she sent it back but the chef just took a... More

Love the feel of this place - and the oysters, of course. Also a big fan of the gator pie appetizer. Good for fun or casual business.

Good food and atmosphere at Full Moon. We go as often as we can and it is always great. Of course you gotta have oysters. Highly recommend to anyone in the area.

Great ambience and fantastic food specializing in seafood. We go about once weekly and really enjoy the meal, cold beer, and really good service. Sometimes there is a short wait, but for us we've always been lucky enough to never have to wait. All seating is around an expansive bar. My favorites are grilled steamed shrimp, seafood mornay, and oysters... More

I have only been there once, but it was fun. You belly up to the bar and order your seafood. The food was really good and we had a great time for a special occasion. A bit expensive for weekly dining (we eat out a lot). Again, watch for the specials. There was a boiler dinner I saw a few... More

What more can I say, these Louisiana cooks know their business. Char-grilled oysters, po-boys, etc are great. i would advise the house potatoes!

We've had dinner here several times and always been pleased with the food and the service. In the fall, football games are typically playing around the bar. We will go back. I don't eat oysters, but I hear they are great!

Brother and I took my dad here for Father's Day because he loves oysters. It's pretty much a huge bar, no individual tables so if you are looking to sit with a large group it might not be the place for you. They have all different kinds of oysters and you can order by the peck or half peck as... More
