Overall I enjoyed my time at this restaurant. The server was attentive, and the atmosphere was fun. The fried cheese appetizer was the best fried cheese I have ever tasted. I was a bit disappointed with the whole flounder. I knew it wasn't a filet, so it was my fault for ordering it, but there were so many bones, I... More

We always stop here on our way back from Florida. Last year we had a bad experience. We had a marvelous waiter today named Joe. He was the nicest, friendliest and attentive waiter we have ever had there. My fish was marvelous and we got to eat raw oysters as well. I will come back they seem to have gotten... More

The Oyster House would have gotten 5 starts but I visited three other places in the area that could be best described as lunch counters or dives that beat them on a couple of the menu items. Crab claws you can pass on.. Bland and better fare is available on almost any pier... Fish was also under seasoned.. Oysters were... More

Had the grilled oysters and they were excellent, should have had a dozen. The shrimp was good, had the platter and thought they had a nice breading. Enjoyed the cheese grits but the collards needed more seasoning. Great staff and will come back if vacationing in the area.

The food was great but man it is expensive for the amount of food you get. If you can afford it you must go for the tasty food.

I have to admit I was a little concerned when our party of 10 was seated immediately on Friday evening at 8pm. They were not busy at all. That's usually not a good sign. Maybe the rush ended early. We were served immediately by a very nice lady. The food was well prepared and delicious. The only negative were the... More

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
