I know it is touristy but it is still good. They move a lot of people through there. We lucked into the most perfect corner seat inside but water with views all around. Looking forward to hush puppies every time and the food and service are always on point. We make a point of going every HHI visit. Reasonably priced.... More

The service is excellent, the food is very good, and not too expensive, and when the kids make a mess nobody cares. And they have outside entertainment in the summer.

if you love seafood and we do then this is the place for you: The oysters were immaculate; The entrees sublime and the key lime pie really tasted of fresh key limes and made fresh.

Always a wait, but we don't know why. It's expensive, and we think it's because you are paying for the view (right on a canal). Drinks are expensive, food is too, and it's only mediocre. Wait staff is good though. They are friendly and welcoming. Not worth the wait or the money.

Delicious freshly caught seafood. You're right on the water! Happy hour has great specials and staff was very helpful! Not even a problem for a gluten free menu!

There are so many great places but this one was just average? We thought his was going to be a wonderful restaurant for my 39th but it didn't live up. The lobster was ok and view wasn't what it was advertised.

Whenever we feel like having a good seafood dinner, we head to the Old Oyster Factory. As usual, the service is good and the food reasonably priced except if you are going for the lobster. We opted not to but still had a good dinner.

We always seem to wind up here when visiting HHI. The service is wonderful, and the atmosphere and location on the marsh seem upscale and inviting at the same time. I just realized that I've had the same dish the past three trips here. The seafood medley is delicious, and perfect for a seafood lover who may have a hard... More

We had dinner here on New Year's Eve. Really enjoyed the ambiance, service and meal. Our waiter was extremely attentive and polite. Seafood was excellent. Would highly recommend.

We had a reservation for 6, so we were seating instantly. Our waiter was AMAZING, he put in our food orders quick, always checked on us, and filled out drinks whenever we needed it to happen. I ordered the sweet tea fried chicken, complete with a pecan maple glaze and bacon macaroni and cheese. We were give delectable hush-puppies, which... More
