This is the second time I have been to the Oyster House, had friends drive down from Ohio to Birmingham. We spent 3 days in Gulf Shores and wanted them to try this restaurant, the first day we drove by the lines were very long so we decided to go on Thursday after 7 and the lines were crazy long so we decided to go Friday early like around 4. There was no wait and the food was delicious I had steamed oysters and should have gotten a full order and made this my dinner. Our friends really loved the food especially the peanut butter pie.

We eat here every summer, and we have never been disappointed. We usually go for late lunch between 2 and 4:00 to avoid lines. This year we were there around 5:30, just before the crowd hit. The expanded restaurant meant there are tables that have no view, and we were disappointed about getting one of those tables. Our waiter was very friendly, and our section filled up right away. No matter, we had excellent service, and the food was dependable. I had snapper with turnip greens and cheese grits. It was all good and way more food than I could eat. Even with no view, we still enjoyed ourselves; and we bought gumbo to take home for later.

First, I am a very picky person. This was NOT the place for me. The food was average at best. The carpet was extremely dirty at 9 in the evening when we went. The first night we tried to go, the wait was over two hours so we opted for something else. We were very eager to try this restaurant because we saw it advertised so much. I did not enjoy this meal at all! This is one step above a dive and not in a good way. I think this is a place that you will either love or hate, no in between. My husband who is not very picky person described it as "old, tired and dirty."
