Let's start with this: a restaurant with the word "oyster" in its name shouldn't run out of oysters at 5:15. When we found this out as we sat down, we should have just gone elsewhere, but instead, we took a gamble and lost. Portion size, as mentioned in other reviews is ridiculously small. This is not because there is a... More

Well I had several local with me for lunch last week and we all agreed the food is not what it used to be. I had fried oysters and they were just awful. Way over cooked and the size of each piece was no more than dime size when good oysters are at least half dollar size. My friend said... More

This place is ok if you don't mind everything fried. It could stand a good cleaning and some renovation, but it is homey and has a nice view.

Very nice people. Ate our dinner outside on a beautiful evening. Seafood was great and the only thing missing was an evening ice cream!

If you are looking for white table clothes, fancy silverware, and flowers on the table, you won't find it here! However, if you want local flavor, fresh seafood, oysters and friendly service, it is your stop! My favorite, Fried mullet (don't turn your nose at this one, a local favorite for centuries), cheese grits, baked beans, as an entree, but... More

This is a bare bones place on a bayou that has been around for decades. Small, thin paper napkins wrapped around the most basic eating utensils are what you get when you sit down in this eating place. Served on plastic plates, the food is just as basic, poorly prepared and generally disappointing. Oysters Rockefeller didn't resemble the traditional dish.... More

Since I used to live in Pensacola and still visit a couple times a year...I know this restaurant well. Each and every time I have been there, I have been happy to see that nothing changes.....but this trip was different. It was the first time I was actually disappointed. From the time I sat down, I felt things were not... More

We had shrimp, both fried and grilled. Good sides, and generous portions. It is a little pricey for a small seafood dive, but we enjoyed everything we tried, including some very good banana pudding.
