Sat at the waterfront porch - and enjoyed the views, food, and service very much. Those girls there are real.

How sad to discover such a great eatery on the last day of our month-long stay on the Forgotten Coast! That being said, we are glad that we did in fact find it. We had seen it many times but weren't sure about going in - the outside of the building is deceiving, and having to go upstairs to see... More

This is one of my go to places in Appalach. Friendly people, great oysters, good beer selection and other great seafood. Sat outside watched a bald eagle over the river, ate raw oysters and Mahi Mahi fingers. Doesn't get much better at lunch. Great long Island tea also.

This casual oyster bar is not fancy dining, but has the best and freshest oysters of anywhere I've ever been. And the most varieties of preparation, from "naked and raw" to other raw with various toppings, to baked with parmesan cheese, baked "Mediterranean" (my favorite) and a number of others. The ambience is decidedly casual, as I believe places like... More

My family and I went there for lunch. We all tried the oysters and decided they were the best we have ever had. The restaurant is very laid back and dogs are allowed on the outside deck. The beers were good and the service was fast. You get a nice view over the river if you sit outside or in... More

My wife and I each had a dozen raw oysters and then we shared a grilled shrimp plate. The oysters were plump and tasty. The shrimp and french fries were very good also.

Don't expect anything fancy. Just expect wonderful food and delicious oysters. After you order at the counter, the food is brought out quickly. Service is good. Great views of the river.

Had the best oysters there. The soup was delish and salmon tacos were full of salmon. Dog friendly with outdoor seating☺

Very casual on the bayou. You order your meals/drinks and then are served. There were 6 of us for lunch and it was wonderful. Unfortunately it got busy and the raw oysters came after the mail meal, but they were wonderful, as attested by those who ate them. I had the best crab cakes I have ever eaten anywhere! Waitress...
