The atmosphere is coastal and if you go at sunset, you are treated to a beautiful sunset weather permitting.Our server was beyond helpful with our choices. She had great recommendations plus an excellent knowledge of the entire menu. We wanted oysters and... More

We always enjoy this restaurant over many many years, and I always give rave reviews. Last night 2 things stood out. I always order the smoked salmon Appetizer. Last night, as well as the past several times I thought the portion served was noticeably smaller than it used to be. For the price, there should be plenty of smoked salmon.... More

It is such a good feeling when you leave a restaurant and you think, wow!, I got a great deal. That was our experience at the Old Oyster Factory. They were running great happy hour deals concurrent with restaurant week deals, so what can I say? The happy hour deals are available only in the bar and adjacent seating areas,... More

We went to the Oyster Factory to see the sunset and have dinner. The views outside were wonderful, set in marshland and a perfect view of the sun setting. I ordered the bucket of shrimp which came with corn and potato. The shrimp was plentiful and so fresh. My husband and our friends had a bucket of combined seafood, crab,... More

Sitting at the bar, the view is wonderful. The interior is well designed and decorated. The food is marvelous - get the oysters, what a great deal! The food was just right.

The atmosphere is typical island tourist destination with no real distinct personality. But, the food was surprisingly good, well prepared and very quick, friendly service. We were there as the result of a gift certificate but will return if we are in the area. Prices are very reasonable.

We try and eat at the "Old Oyster Factory" anytime we are in HHI which is about twice a year. It is well known for its unlimited and tasty hush puppies and wonderful views of the sunset on clear nights. This time we came during "Restaurant Week" and ordered from the limited special menu. The hush puppies over cooked (hard... More
