I recently attended a luncheon at the Oyster House in Glf Shores. They seated us promptly, and the staff was very helpful in accomadating part of our party that needed handicap seating. The variety of the menu offered was fresh, salad bar exceptional, and it was worth the trip.

The restaraunt is conveniently located with easy parking. The staff was very friendly. We had a table with a great view on the water. The draft beer was ice cold and a great selection offered. The salad bar was amazing and the yeast rolls were so good. All of the seafood was good and served hot and fresh. The shrimp scampi was our least favorite because the shrimp wasn't deveined and it was gritty. Otherwise, we enjoyed our experience. We will definitely be visiting this place again in the future.

The cheese grits and salad bar are worth the trip alone. Great variety of seafood dishes and the atmosphere keep us coming back.

I have been visiting this place for over twelve years. They have the best gumbo and fried plate in town. Must try!

The food and service were excellent, and we were seated by a window so that was very nice. The restaurant was full and very noisy and we did havea long wait time. Overall, though, very good.
