My family and I ate here for dinner our first night. The location is convenient, we walked from our room. The food was pretty good, I had seafood étouffée and my husband and the shrimp platter. The étouffée was great, seasoned well and a nice kick. His shrimp tasted fresh from the gulf. My daughters kids meal was average taste but the price was expensive. Overall, it's a family friendly restaurant to stop by while walking in the Baytown wharf.

The chargrilled oysters were great. The fish po-boy was a little bland and they have no Louisiana hot sauce - are you serious?

This wasn't my first visit to this fine establishment, where the rock and roll echoing throughout the restaurant matches the rustic beach vibe. I visited here with a large gathering of my family, so I was able to try one of everything it seemed. The crab claws are great and so was the fish po boy I ordered, but the focus of every meal I have here as usual is the chargrilled oysters, which are the best in Destin- served with bread that allows you to soak up that buttery garlic left behind under the oysters that are not slimy at all like their raw counterpart. So. Ensure that you order AT LEAST one dozen of these oysters for an appetizer or meal, but know you'll be craving for more as soon as you put down that fork.

A friend of mine eats here every summer so we went based on her recommendation. I was a little taken aback when we walked in. It was very kitschy. It looked like part carnival, part sports bar, and part 1980's pizza joint. We had a table of 8 and were so cramped with two four tops put together, I found myself putting one arm on the back of the chair next to me. Service was good, our waitress was helpful and efficient. I had the shrimp po boy (mind you, it's just the sandwich, sides are not included). My husband had the fried catfish. Both were just average tasting. I probably would not return based on my experience.

Must try the boo fries! We sat at the oyster bar. All food came out fast and hot. Price is reasonable. Staff is very friendly and exciting!
