I thoroughly enjoyed the Oyster House. It's a brick interior with character and a centrally located bar. Great drinks and very good quality seafood selections. Very reasonably priced drinks and seafood items, which make it a definite stop for those budget minded visitors. I would...More

Very much enjoyed the bucket of oysters as well as the crawfish. Delicious hush puppies and cold beer. Although frankly I'm surprised my head didn't explode from crappy 80s hair music. Journey, White Snake, Def Leopard followed by some crappy Eagles songs. In short, the...More

The seafood & service were excellent and pub atmosphere was terrific. Will be back for sure next visit to Savannah. Prices were reasonable as well.

We had a party of 5 and had no problem being seated. Everyone had seafood and we loved it. They had a wide selection of beer on draft and reasonably priced drinks. We will be visiting them again.

We stopped here passing through to Hilton Head. Great atmosphere. The waitress worked hard and made sure our cups stayed full. The food was decent tasting. We ordered the shrimp and oyster po' boys, and the oyster tacos. The only complaint is they skimped on...More

We had been traveling all day to get here and were holding out for some great local food. We decided to drive around and check out our options and ended up on the waterfront. After walking for some time and seeing lines of people waiting...More
