“Oysters oh my”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2013

Stopped in on a Friday afternoon during Super Bowl week. Had some excellent oysters on the half shell, some other dishes, washed down by some draught beers. Very pleasant and attentive service at the bar, pleasant informal surroundings in a former bank building. Very much recommended for some casual Gulf Coast seafood.

“Great Place to Chill”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Very nice selection of food and adult beverages! The atmosphere is dark for dinner but is pretty noisy because it is very open. One of the many local seafood places that will not disappoint.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

What a delightful experience! We visited this restaurant last week, where we had oysters on the half shell, gumbo, and a shrimp and oyster po boy. The oysters and gumbo were delicious, and the po boy was one of the best we have ever had. The service was outstanding, and the restaurant is very nicely done. We were very pleased, and we will definitely return!

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 2, 2013

We had the blue crab cakes for an appetizer, fried shrimp and grilled mahi as entrees with key lime pie to finish off a wonderful dining experience. Drinks were $2 off during happy hour. Lynn provided outstanding service, Just a short walk from the Beau Rivage and the Hard Rock.
