“Bad Service. Great oysters!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

My husband hit this place up twice on vacation for their oysters. They are the biggest, freshest, and cheapest oysters around. Although, you really have to initiate you need your server to wait on you. I finally just went up to the bar to pay, and would have been ignored for who knows how long if I wouldn't have got someone's attention. As long as you initiate you need help, it is a great place, but I wish you didn't have to do that.

“Bloody Mary on Sat/Sun!”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

On Saturday and Sunday you can garnish your own Bloody Marys inside at the bar. They have a great selection of olives, onions, pickles, and lots of hot sauces to add to your bev. The standard Bloody Mary has a nice Bloody Mary mix to start with and comes already garnished with pickled green beans. We had a great time and our bartender, Susie, was so friendly and nice. She really was super sweet and I would love to go back to that bar just to say hello to her.

“Best Key Lime Martini”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

Just went here for drinks. Not just any drink but the best DAM Key Lime Martini ever!! Although we did not eat here there were several content faces on the other patrons that were eating clams, oysters, and shrimp. Everyone is so nice here and they usually have entertainment. Add it to your list of stops..

“Half price oysters all the time! Excellent entertainment.”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We happened on this place. The oysters were shucked when we ordered. We ended up eating 2 dozen! They were excellent. We enjoyed the guy playing guitar very much and lingered here for quite a while. Go out of your way for this place!

“Great place to try oysters”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

We were walking on the along the pier on Front Street and my wife saw a sign for "0.50 cent oysters all day" and figured that was a great way to try them without having to buy a big plateful. Both the lady serving and the young man shucking oysters were extremely helpful to the point that I also tried them and we ended up eating a dozen and a couple of beers between us. Also at 4 o'clock they feed the Tarpon right off the dock. Great for the kids and adults.
