We were recommended this restaurant by a Realitor in town. It was a local bar restaurant hangout. The service was very good and the restaurant clean. We had the fried oyster basket along with the grouper basket. While the food was very good I thought they were just a little high on their prices. We sat on the porch and watched an osprey look for his lunch. It was a enjoyable lunch.

We are from Illinois and visited Papa Joes's last year while vacationing. My husband and I were looking for some good fired oysters and boy did we pick the right place! We have never had such good fried oysters and plan to go back when we're down in April. We dream of tasting these wonderful delicacies once again. I don't know how many times we've said, "wouldn't it be great if they delivered to Illinois! Don't miss this place - they could use an update on the decor but man the food makes up for that.

This restaurant is on the River and yet the atmosphere is nil. The service is good. The oysters are served a variety of ways and very good. The key lime is excellent. The value is good. The preparation just seems mechanical and I do not see any passion.

Wife and I ate lunch here on February 7, 2013. Two oyster po-boys with french fries and sodas cost $26.71 without the tip. They open for lunch at 11:30 and people were waiting to get in. The sandwiches were very good and the fries were plentiful and weren't greasy. They don't offer an alternative to the fries with the sandwich like they do at the Owl. The porch dining area is rustic but comfortable. Service was pleasant and timely. We like it.
