if you are looking for great oysters and shrimp this place will not let you down. Try to go during the week and the wait isn't as long. On the weekends your wait could be over an hour. Nothing fancy about this place but they will provide a good meal and the great service.

This is the real deal Oyster Bar. Excellent all the way around. The menu is as basic as you can get: Oysters, Shrimp, Scallops, Crab Legs, Broccoli w/ cheese, beer, wine, soft drinks, tea, must be leaving something out.... No burgers... nothing else to eat. On a weekend night you may wait up to an hour, so get their early... More

The experience was absolutely amazing.. Jesse shucked my half peck of raw oysters right in front of me and we had a ball! Shady though, my credit card information was stolen and by the next morning over one hundred dollars of gas and Walmart was stacked on my out of state capital one. Bring CASH.

Not just dining but an experience. Their menu is limited but what they do, they do great!! We had a peck of steamed oysters, a pound of stemaed shrimp and 1/2 a pound of steamed scallops. The best dipping sauce in the world.

Over a half-century ago, my gran-daddy and his pals sat on the handmade barstools situated on the floor scattered with wood-chips, watching skilled shuckers serve up delicious, just-steamed oysters.

Very unique dining experience in this hidden gem in NC. They steam open raw oysters for you and pour them out one by one onto a small bowl. Scallops huge and fresh. Glad I stopped here!
