“Dusty's - don't beleive their slogan of warm beer, lousy food and ugly waitresses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 17, 2014

We were at Dusty's twice. The food is good. The oysters are excellent, though I found Dusty's baked oysters a bit salty, the others were marvelous. My husband really enjoyed the grouper sandwich. Since they are always busy, there can be a bit of a wait both for seating and for the food. They have a good happy hour 3-6 and the draft beer are only $.75. Other prices are just as reasonable. They may advertise warm beer (it isn't), lousy food (it isn't) and ugly waitresses (they aren't). Our waitress was Megan - the service was attentive and friendly, even though we were sitting out on the back verandah so were could smoke, watch the turtles, fish and raccoon..

“RAW OYSTERS”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

as to soft-shelled crab, fish-and-chips, scallops, etc., -- all very good here - BUT-
as to seating at the oyster bar itself (ta da !) If you want really cold,delicious, fresh raw oysters on the half shell, this Is the place ! ---and the price is right !
I prefer Dusty`s to Acme and Felix`s in the French Quarter

“Great Oysters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 13, 2014

Schucked right in front of you all day long. There was a line to get in before open at 11am. I would suggest getting there early, gets pretty full. Everything we had was awesome

“Fun Local Dining and Bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

Fun atmosphere! Great employees who are very friendly. We came for drinks one evening but no hard alcohol - so keep this in mind. Good place for a cold beer. Lunch was very tasty. The burger was really good, my friends loved the oysters and they split a shrimp Po'Boy that they said was great.
Not to miss - The Chowder in the bread bowl. I am still thinking about that fresh bread bowl.
Only issue is service is slow. We were early for lunch, one of the 1st there and waited very long before we got our food. Worth the wait, but don't come hungry! You'll starve waiting.
