I was a little surprised by how casual this place is - very basic decor (dollar bills and brassieres stapled to the walls?), loud radio music, plastic silverware, etc. Very biker bar feel. With that said, the food more than made up for its atmosphere.
If you are an oyster person, make time for this place! I ordered a dozen raw on the half shell and for about $8 I got 12 HUGE lovely oysters. They were to die for. I should have ordered more!
The gator bites were also great, but a little pricey ($15-ish).
We went to this place for lunch; I think I might have enjoyed the atmosphere better if we'd gone for dinner or a late night snack - I think its ambiance is better appreciated after dark and with drinks.
I will definitely return to this place, at night/after dark, and order about 3 dozen oysters!
