Not real sure of the atmosphere but if the are going for "joint" they got it! However, I enjoyed their food. I had oysters and the oyster stew. The stew was a thin milk based broth filled with whole oysters. I really like this simple soup. The oysters were top notch. Nice and fresh, perfect sized and shucked perfectly. My... More

I ate here on my last note in town, was suggested by my hotel staff, the service was great, waitress was very friendly. Food came out really fast, I was still enjoying my dinner salad. Had the flounder it was huge, I ended up talking half home. In my opinion better than Joe's crab shack and much cheaper.

You can always count on getting a great meal at 316 Oyster Bar & Seafood Grill. The oyster stew is delicious and the shrimp cocktail is great. Everything we have ever ordered here has been excellent. It is not an inexpensive restaurant, nor is it a fancy restaurant, but it is a great place to eat seafood, and the service... More

Love the Rooster shooters! This place has great food and great service. We were in town for a couple days and I'm so glad to have stopped in. The rooster shooters made with beer and the best horseradish are something I crave because it's so good. Stop in you won't regret it.

En route to OBX with overnight reservations we decided to wait for dinner in Fayetteville. Quick review of eateries resulted in this find. A packed parking lot at 7:30 suggested we had made a good decision though it meant a 35 minute wait to dine. We chose to dine at the bar where we could preview all of the offerings... More

Go to 316 Oyster for prompt service, friendly staff, and excellent food. All seafood is prepared just for you, and the menu is extensive. At times, the music that is playing is a little too loud, but if you sit in the main dining room, there is less noise and conversation is easier. The food is exceptional and prices reasonable.

Had dinner with friends here last night and the whole experience was wonderful. There are several bars and dining areas,with a great cocktail menu. The waitress we had was amazing,very knowledgeable regarding the menu and offered great ideas on switching items to suit our palette. The prices for fresh seafood were very reasonable and 100% we will be back.

We found the overall experience to be 5 of 5. The oyster stew was the best ever (we didn't specify water or milk, the broth was milk based and the taste was phenomenal). I lived on the coast for my first 25 years, but I can't remember oysters anywhere cooked this well. We also thought the salmon was the best.... More

This is as good as it gets for local seafood when you are not at the coast. Always a crowd there of locals. The oyster bar is excellent but a little small. The back bar is a great place to wait for a table, and unwind. They also have an option for small plates for those who are not as... More
