We ate at The Royal Oyster Bar December 22, 2018. I had the shrimp and grits and my companion had the cobia sandwich. Both were amazing. Sci-fi/fantasy nerds should look for hidden objects!

The Royal Oyster is open year round. It is family owned so check locally if you are visiting at holiday times for the schedule. I am simply a happy customer. Great folks!
