tried S & D, was ok +

Food was good, service was good. Not 4 or 5 stars, by any means, but good. Satisfying, fresh and reasonably priced. We'd return there for a quick and simple lunch.

6/12/2015 We were in town celebrating our wedding anniversary and the Concierge referred us to Gui but failed to tell us or (did not know) that there hours were 11:30-2:30 and Dinner : 5:30-10:00pm so we tried S & D since they were open. This location is within walking distance from the luxury hotels and MANY other restaurants in the... More

We were looking for another restaurant and saw the S & D Oyster Company sign and all four of us agreed that beer and oysters would be a great lunch. Each couples shared a dozen of oysters which were excellent. The Harpoon IPA is a very hardy beer and went great with the seafood. My wife and I shared the... More

Be careful not to eat oysters there. Hard to believe but this company does not care about proper feeding delicacy. On the table will be dead oysters ... Connoisseurs know that they must be alive, not pre-frozen. Otherwise, they are even dangerous to eat! That's why they are served on ice to prolong their lives.

First time here and I'm impressed. It's not too much food, which would just be wasted, and what you get is delicious. I'll be back.

Unless you like fried food or raw oysters, don't go. Obviously it's called 'oyster co' so they specialize in oysters, but outside that they don't have a lot to offer. I'm not a huge fan of raw oysters so I was looking forward to some grilled ones- they didn't have any. I asked the waitress for some recommendations, and although... More

This is a Dallas institution. There's nothing fancy or ornate. It's simply plain old good seafood. BBQ shrimp absolutely delicious. Oysters on the half shell fresh with table side prepared cocktail sauce. The seafood cream cheese dip also tasty. Our table all enjoyed some form of shrimp - peel n eat, broiled and fried. Hush puppies and slaw well done.... More

This is really one of the last of the old restaurants that we have dined at since coming to Dallas in 1976. We have been stopping by this place ever since. Always a good spot to take some out of own guest for good seafood. This is not a fancy restaurant and more on the neighborhood type of place. The... More
