This funky beach bar and restaurant is always busy. Maybe it's the very affordable beer and wine ( would that be 12or 16ounces?!?!), but we think it's the great food and service. Lots of grilled and blackened choices. The scallops are to die for. We share a pound then add a couple of sides. Always leave stuffed!! Give it a... More

Went there for lunch and were surprised how empty the place was. Oysters were smaller than last year but still good. The po boys were good but nothing too special. Service was prompt but not friendly like last year. Maybe problems we dont know about.

This a must go place. Over $100,000 in one dollar bills hanging from the ceiling and on the walls. Food is great and wait staff is even better. Ask for Trish. Really must see to appreciate

We went here for my birthday dinner in early January. Even at that time of year there was a wait. This is a good sign. We sat at the bar and ordered raw oysters. I didn't really want that for my birthday but was talked into it. I ended up downing a half dozen of them! The first couple I... More

In on a nice January day for lunch, we sat on the back deck which was pleasant. Our server, Giulia, was great. Very attentive service without being intrusive. We both had the oyster po boys which were fine. The place was very busy so if you come at a prime meal time be prepared to wait a bit.

We dined at Dusty's on a Sunday night in January and it was very crowded and busy. I had two dozen oysters, which were great and came very quickly. I had th blackened grouper and it was superb. My wife had the fish and chips and liked it as it was only lightly breaded and fried. There was a good... More

We enjoyed the food and service. Fun little local oyster bar with much more than oysters. Cool local feel with a back deck that over looks a pond with fish for the kids to check out.

Dustys is a very busy Seafood and Oyster bar. We were on the wait list for an hour. They have a bar so you can have wine or beer as you wait. The restaurant is a unique place to vist, not only for the great food, but for the decor and atmosphere. They have a bar that serves oysters, which... More

Went for Lunch in the off season and still had a short wait. Oysters were very good. We also had various other dishes with Fried and Grilled foods. The Gumbo is excellent as well. this place never disappoints.

The food was amazing. I ordered the seafood nachos not expecting a big change from regular nachos but I was sure amazed on how great it was. I was disappointed that they did not have the Lobster Po'boy so I opted for the Blackened Catfish Po'boy and it was really good too. Our server was pleasant and let me know... More
