“Just the oysters”
Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Sit at the bar/counter and enjoy the shucking. Oysters are certainly fresh, and the staff are expert. Mix your own cocktail sauce. Superb.

“Good oysters the rest ok”
Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

For sure great oysters, the rest of the menu is average to good. Place could use a scrubbing. While I love rustic places and good seafood , there are times when the fish smell when you walk in is a little much. Otherwise love this place!

“This is the place for fresh Oysters!”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Went here to enjoy their Oyster bar from a recommendation by the hotel valet, and he was right! They served big plump fresh, Apalachicola Oysters (recently available) on the half shell that were wonderful. The Caesar salad was over dressed, the gumbo was salty. The place is a total college bar-dive-hangout, but if you want oysters, go here!

“Used to be good oysters”
Reviewed June 25, 2013

I went on a Monday to have some oysters.
to start a conversation with the guy in charge for shucking my Oysters "I say:How are the Oysters today?my surprise He say to Me:I DON'T EAT OYSTERS"
That was good I say to my self,I ask for a Dozen,He start Shucking the Oysters then the fist Two slip to the Counter from the shell.I ask Him in a polite manner Is The COUNTER CLEAN??
He did not answer my question at all.He dump the Oyster in the Garbage.
I'm coming to Barnacle Bill's since when I move to Tallahassee.but I think is not the same.
Is time to find a place for consuming those precious Apalachicola Creatures
my Intuition is telling ME "DON'T DO IT" and I will Listen This time.
