My husband and I ate here for lunch while we were in town. Love the old building that it is in, and the Oysters were great. Gumbo was not that bad either. We will be back.

The seafood at this place was amazing. My wife and I shared the Bourbon Bacon Jam Oysters. Our main courses were the Shrimp Po'boy and the Seafood Sampler. We left pleased. We will definitely stop by here again if we are in the area!

Outstanding Oysters Rockefeller! Stuffed mushrooms to die for! Sweet potato creme brûlée side more like a dessert! Great service and not over priced.

Amazing service with amazing food. A nice sit down meal, Slightly on the pricey side, but I'd pay double what they charge because it was that delicious

Absolutely, we are open normal hours on Easter Sunday, in fact we normally open the doors a little before 11 just to get folks in and seated if there's a line outside.

You can see the water from the right spot in either location, however in both locaations we are a couple blocks off of the Gulf, so the view of the water isn't the best.
