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!

Our family of 5 ate here after spending a day out in the 10,000 Islands. All were very hungry and the restaurant delivered. We had a variety of food from grouper, clams, wings and a cheeseburger and all were really well done. The service was fast and friendly.

The food quality vs price here was not good. Everything was really expensive even the drinks, and I actually gagged while eating the gator tacos and my mother literally pooped her pants after eating here. It is totally worth it to make the drive to Naples for better food.

Fried gator, fried grouper, fried shrimp, clam chowder, shrimp scampi and salads with [delicious] homemade ranch - that's what we ate. It was all pretty good, but I didn't want anything fried or salty for days afterward! Servers were very friendly, and our plates came out in a timely manner. Prices seemed a little elevated for fried food in Everglades... More

Excellent waitstaff very accommodating even with our large group. Fried shrimp baskets and fried green tomatoes were incredible . Make sure you see the giant gator while... More

Wonderful food. Friendly, sweet staff. Clean and authentic to its location. The clam chowder is deliciously on-point. I'd come back for just that if not for everything else!!👍

We chose this restaurant as it was one of two open int he summer. Our meals were okay . . . nothing exceptional. Service was slow but as far as I could tell there was just one server. They do have an afternoon happy hour.
