My husband and I spent the last weekend in September visiting the Everglades and Big Cypress Preserve. We arrived at our hotel in Everglades City around 8 pm. There we only 2 restaurant options available at that time and we chose to celebrate our wedding anniversary at The Oyster House. Our first impression wasn't favorable, but only because we're not...

I recently visited with colleagues and we left very satisfied with food and hospitality of servers! We enjoyed so many great dishes. And found we couldn't decided because there were so many dishes to choose from! I definitely recommend their ceviche & grouper! Looking forward to visiting again on our next trip to the Everglades!

I recently visited the Everglades during a family vacation and we were delighted with our choice to eat here. The service was excellent everyone had a smile on their face and our server Taylor was an absolute delight! The food was great we tried a little bit of everything and no one at our table was disappointed. Will definitely be... More

Most everything on the menu is fryed. My fish taco...only eat half of the first one, the fish was horriable. The conch fritters were OK. Nice feature the bar is separated, good for the kids. Open till 9pm even in off season, may be the only place open that late is the best feature

If you are looking for a great place to eat in this lovely old fishing town, this is the place to go! I enjoyed the fish special that was offered that evening, it was fresh and delicious. I even tried the alligator, I guess I was caught up in the local vibe. The waitresses are colorful and a hoot to... More

We visited Everglades city during off season (which we didn't even know) but it was lovely. We ate at the oyster house and business was slow but we got to talk to the bartender and it was fun. We have never eaten oysters before and decided to take the bartenders recommendation! We ordered the oysters that had ricotta and spinach... More

The food was fantastic! Fresh and big portions. Today my husband suggested going there for dinner, since the food was great. The service is the only thing keeping me from going back. The waitress looked like she didn't want to be there and pretty much ignored us unless we waved her over.

If you like your restaurants to be modern, recently refurbished and a part of a bland chain this isn't the place for you! The Oyster House restaurant is a pretty authentic restaurant with lots of quirkiness inside. We liked that about it as it has real atmosphere and character. To be honest I don't think decor wise it's been touched... More

Went to dinner there and the place was empty when I was there. Waited five minutes before anyone even acknowledged my party. They had and advertised meal and when I asked about it I was told that that was the lunch portion. No big deal. I ordered Grouper. I was not served Grouper, I was served 4 pieces of something...

Great food! Great atmosphere! Great service! The fresh fried clams and steamed shrimp were excellent. So were the cocktails! There's a bar with darts and a pool table and a restaurant. A great stop for lunch, dinner or appetizers!

Thank Rocklama
