As a child from New York City, my family visited relatives in Florida each summer.
Some of my favorite memories of southern meals were hush puppies, gator meat, and other Southern foods. This place not only brought back memories of my childhood, but the food was a great as I was hoping it would be.

The female server Candy was excellent, Friendly, Great service, Did not 'hover' but always seemed to be there when you needed something

This was our first time at the Oyster House. Started with Gator Bites which were awesome and went on to the Grouper sandwich and the Fried Bay scallop basket. We topped off our meal with the fabulous Key Lime pie and a robust cup of espresso. What really made our meal was the GREAT service from our FANTASTIC waitress Candy. She even gave us some great advice for our next trip to town for the Seafood Festival in February. Thank you again Miss Candy. Keep up the Great work you are doing. Ken and Lucy

We decided to take a week end away and go back to the Rod & Gun Club via the car rather our boat. Once again totally enjoyed the people who were staying there as well as the staff. We decided to go out for dinner off property... It was great had lobster tails and crab cakes best simple salad ever. The sweet potato cakes were something you wanted to know how to cook when you got home. Back to our cabin #45 which we were allowed to bring our 4 legged family member.

Decide to go back to the Oyster House for lunch after such a GREAT dinner we were expecting the same thing at lunch :-( Not at all we waiting way to long for our food to be served and it was cold and the fish was not fresh, My shrimp basket was served on a plate with cold sweet potato cakes, my husband ordered a snapper special that came as a sandwich and was not snapper. It was a very disappointing lunch compared to our dinner. The most amazing thing was our dinner was less $ and SO much better than our lunch. Make sure if you go that you go for dinner lunch is way to laid back
