We stopped by on our way to Orange Beach on the recommendation of a friend. The food was really good. Our server was good but a little busy and didn't always keep the drinks filled. We'd try it again when down that way.

Best seafood in Mobile in my opinion. I have never been dissapointed with the food or the service. Good portions at a very reasonable price. The view of Mobile Bay is a nice plus, especially at sunset.

The Original Oyster House on the Highway 90 is great. Our family loved dining there. There was a wide selection for our whole family and everything was delicious. The service was good. We will return. The Blackwell / Hunt Family

In Mobile, the place that used to be the best for seafood was this joint. We were there on a weeknight and as usual the place was crowded. The service was very good, but I can't say the same for the food. The entre was the only thin close to hot. Quality seems to have slipped recently. We may need... More

Visiting the Mobile Bay Area for the first time, this restaurant was recommended to us by several people we questioned. The food was good and I feel, priced appropriately. Location is great. Atmosphere is good. Service was good. I can see why this is a favorite for locals. Good food, good service, good atmosphere, decent price.

We are a family of 9 ranging in age from 20 to 88. Our waitress was extremely kind and it was our first encounter with southern hospitality in such a large establishment. The views of the parkway were beautiful and you get to eat while extolled by stilts. The cheese grits were the best grits I've had in months. The... More

This is one of my family's favorite restaurants since they were first built on the Causeway way back when. When my uncle retired from 45 active years in the military this is where all the family met to have his retirement party. It was a large gathering of family from all over the US. The food was amazing and the... More

To be fair maybe we should come back and order entree's - but, we were up for a full meal. I ordered the salad bar w/ gumbo - the gumbo was not good. I did not even finish it. The salad bar was basic with not many toppings IMO and the set up was so tight that to get a... More

Met a friend for dinner. Had a dozen grilled oysters that were above average. Ordered a seafood salad that was delicious. Service is average. Beer is cold. Go there once every couple of months.
