The service was great and the food was excellent. The portion sizes are not huge for lunch but they are tasty. The Cajun shrimp was amazing and the cocktail sauce was perfect.

Nice seafood. Crab cake dinner was OK. Average crab cakes. Seafood stuffed ravioli was very good, if a little pricey.

Food was above average and no complaints from anyone in the 15 ppl group! (including kids). Most of us ordered the crab cake and it was delicious, albeit the dish was on the small side.Tip: the women's... More

Went to a party of 30+ people. Servers did a great job of getting all the drink orders and then the meals. Oysters Rockefeller were excellent. Small, very flavorful oysters. fried Oyster ceasar salad was also great. My wife had portofino pasta which had plenty of shrimp, scallops, and crab meat in a creamy sauce. Highly recommended!

My wife and I have been coming to Lucky Oyster for many years and have always had great service and delicious food. Our favorite time to dine here is on Tuesday nights for the half price raw bar. It's an amazing deal and it is always a delicious fresh steamed platter of oysters, mussels, clams, shrimp, corn and carrots. We... More

We followed the advise of a local and went to Lucky Oyster on Thursday shrimp night. She crab soup is a local specialty. There's was good. I enjoyed the fried shrimp with salad & broccoli. Others in our group sampled other dishes. Prices were reasonable, food was delicious. Reservations fill up - so plan and call ahead.

Other then some business lunches I have never eaten in the restaurant at any place other then the bar. My wife and usually try once or twice when staying at Sandbridge. We are generally there late afternoon and find the bar not pounded and most of the time everyone is under control. Bar tender(s) always on top of their game... More
