This place was terrible because of how long you have to get your food and the waiter was crazy I suggest that you should go some where else

Our waitress Barbara couldn't have been better. She joked around this us and gave us great service. The raw oysters were large and yummy. The place is very small but it wasn't crowded at all.

An unpretentious little restaurant that serves great seafood. The raw oysters were fresh and delicious. They needed only a bit of lemon, no cocktail sauce or anything else. The shrimp were also superior. The owner was friendly, as was our waitress Barbara.

After a couple brews next door, we came in here to eat. The dining area is a bit small, but it works. Now the lady that sat us was a little crusty in my opinion...if you catch my drift. Besides the tables, they have a...short bar to sit at also. I tried the grouper basket with french fries. The fish was OK and the tarter sauce made the difference. The fries were really good too. I had a draft beer. Not sure what the restaurant theme was...but there where lots of ball caps hanging from the wall. Nothing exceptional stood out for me. A pretty average place to dine. My friend felt pretty similar. The area fits the this place and vice versa. No objections to stopping in here again.More

This restaurant is literally “a hole in the wall.” Four tables, three of which are large “family style “ and a bar with about ten seats. The small staff is very friendly. I was seated at the bar and when my oysters were ready my...server looked all over the restaurant trying to find who ordered them and she was who took my order. All part of the charm. The food is excellent. The beer is from Grayton Beach and not the local Oyster City brewery. It was good beer nonetheless.More

Fun little restaurant with great food and fun staff. Beware that it is adults only. We had the best oysters! I also had a grouper sandwich and my husband had a shrimp basket. Both were delicious. Highly recommend.

Great fun casual funky spot with great food. The staff made us feel right at home and it was fun to watch them all carry on with the regulars . We were treated very well and had a great conversation with the owner as we...were luck enough to get seats at the bar.More

Wow!! We have been contemplating going here for serval years now and we wished we would have gone before now! Best oysters in the area. I had gumbo and the hubby had a crab cake and shrimp basket. We were thoroughly impressed. Ice cold beer...to top it off. The service was great and very entertaining staff!! We will be back!!More

Apparently, Covid doesn't exist at this restaurant... we walked in and joined one of the large tables in a PACKED bar with zero masks worn by the staff. We waited a good ten minutes for service and when a waitress finally arrived, she motioned with...a head shake "no". We had no idea what she meant so after she delivered items to another table, she came over and rudely said "No! You can't sit here! I have people waiting!" Kind of embarassing to say the least and the fact that she said it rudely did not help the situation. There was zero signage about the fact that we needed to wait to be seated... we left and won't bother going back with so many other excellent options.More
