Friendly, personal service. You are greeted when you enter and again when you leave. Food is good. Ask the owner to play the broomstick and know that hushpuppies taste great with a little quava jelly. Oysters served fresh on the half shell.

Love coming to this establishment. The food is fantastic, and the service is great. Better yet, they have a home made musical instrument like you have never seen nor heard before! Fun, fun, fun! You will love it!

I had a great experience at Deal's. I went at lunch time and I received my order very quickly. The fried shrimp, fries, and cheese grits were delicious! This place is a must if you are in Perry!

Oyster house with other seafood, burgers, etc. I always enjoy "small appetite" grilled shrimp and fried scallops. We all enjoy the pogo stick music presentation.

Had the privilege to be invited to dinner at Deal's. Rustic, but very friendly. If you like seafood, don't miss this place. You can order your food fried, grilled or blackened. I prefer grilled, and I love Scallops and Shrimp. It comes with two sides,...More
