Hunts is a local Dothan favorite. The food is 'for sure' good at a very reasonable price and the service is very friendly, nicely attentive. The restaurant itself is very basic and casual. My only criticism is that the salad bar is a bit on the pathetic side. They need to pay some attention to its contents (fewer and better items) and location. Needs to be out of 'traffic'. It is very awkward to get your salad amidst at a 'crossroad' of several paths for patrons and wait staff, especially when more than 4 people are trying to get theirs.

Kind of your typical local favorite run by the same family for years and popular in town. Building was alittle outdated and run down and kinda hinden off the road. Interior was definetly dated and old looking but the people were super friendly and although I wouldn't say the food was great, it was good.
I give it an uptick on the rating simply because the people were really nice and I like to get away from the chains you see in every town and try the local favorites. It is worth a try if you are in town and like this type of place.

You can get everything from Oyster's to Steaks. Stopped in for lunch and had a grilled chicken sandwich and a real "non-manufactured" cheeseburger and fries. Great local joint where the owner, staff, and "the locals" are all very nice. Better like Alabama or Auburn football or you may get some deserving strange looks! JK!

I'm a girl grown up on seafood from all regions of the US including New England's Boston Harbor to Hilton Head's Atlantic, Florida's many beaches, and various Gulf Coast stops along the way. My husband and I stopped by this place because the offer a cooler special where they'll give you dozens to fill your cooler and ice to keep them cold. We chose to do this on our way to his father's house in Ashford, less than 20 minutes from the Restaurant. Big mistake. When we were ready to shuck, these oysters came clustered together (big and small), but upon shucking them, they were old, dry and tasted like they had been sitting in a bucket of ice and morton's table salt. I wouldn't recommend taking on one of these "specials". Maybe they offer a better selection in their restaurant, but its not good business practice for the "leading" oyster bar to hand out the quality of oysters we received... Hope this changes in the future!

When we go to the Florida panhandle for some beach time we always go by way of Dothan, Alabama and we try to time our trip to hit Dothan around lunch time so we can enjoy Hunt's. This place is a true Southern gem and the oysters are divine! Our favorites are the ones baked in garlic butter and parmesan cheese. They are incredible. Good prices and great service.
