The oysters and drinks are always fantastic. This is the first place we visited when we got to Santa Rosa Beach FL. You can't go wrong with anything you order there. The people are wonderful too and it's just a fun place.

This place should be ranked higher! Great patio, great food & excellent service. Not just great oysters as they smoke wings which are tender & delicious! Off the main drag but worth finding. Shrimp & grits were awesome too!

Can't remember the details. Plenty of food and I think the prices for lunch were in the $8-$12 range.
