I think this is more of a 3.5 stars. The fresh oysters are amazing! I love the Chimi and the Tobasco ones. But then I'm biased towards anything spicy. I had the Mexican Spicy Shrimp Ceviche. It was good and very fresh, but .... the...More

What more can I say...Great food, great service, great bar. Good things come in small packages, so the downtown location isn't where you would go for a family reunion, but you could have that reunion at their larger Beardon location, which has the same great...More

It seems I find really good seafood in the most unique locations, even though I'm not a seafood fan. For lunch I had the fish and chips with cole slaw. It also came with a choice of lobster bisque or clam chowder. I must say...More

I have been on a quest to find the best fish tacos for four years. I found 'em, and they're just down the street from where I work. I'm probably not hip enough for Shuck -- it's an edgy sort of place, and everyone there...More

Maybe it was just a bad night in the kitchen, but my blackened grouper was so salty it was close to inedible. I alerted the server and she said she would relay this information to the chef. I downed three glasses of ice tea and...More

We ate at the one on South Gay St. just down from our hotel. Food was very good and must try homemade Key Lime Pie.

I echo the comments of lh8weeds and marywithani. This is a small, cozy place, but has fun character and has the atmosphere for an enjoyable meal and to dine with family and/or friends. Unbelievable selection of raw oysters for a landlocked southern town. They were...More
