This restaurant has been around a long time and have found it to be consistently good every time we go. The flame grilled oysters are one of our favorites. They always have a nicely prepared catch of the day. That is usually our choice. Their coleslaw is awesome. They have a nice looking salad bar but have always ordered the... More

Ate here with my husband and we were pleased. The menu was well priced, the waitress was probably one of the best we've ever had wait on us, the view of the river was just fabulous and the food was okay. There jalapeno sauce was great for hush puppies and very unique. The seafood was well cooked and tasty. Overall... More

Great food, great service. We went right at 11 am because we had seen lines there and we don't like to wait to long, so no line for us. It was very yummy.

This is a great dish! The Mahi Mahi was blackened to perfection with a very tasty Tasso sauce with fried crawfish sprinkled on top! Awesome! Also the cheese grits were the best ever according to my wife!😋

Went to Oyster House for dinner and had a 40 minute wait. We left and went for lunch the next day. We had the chargrilled oysters as an appetizer. They were very good. I had fried oyster platter which was good, but not seasoned enough. I'm from South Louisiana so I guess I like them a little more seasoned. My... More
