We were a party of six that we promptly seated at our reservation time on a Friday evening. Almost immediately thereafter we were met by our server, Karen, who took our drink orders and then returned with our drinks asking if we were ready to order. We were not so she circled back to the table a couple more times until we were ready. She took both appetizer and meal orders and refreshed our drinks as needed. The Rock Those Oysters, Ragin Cajun Oysters, and watermelon feta cheese with balsamic (not on the menu) appetizers were outstanding. Equally good was the She Crab soup. Among the party the Deep Treasure Scallops, Peel and Eat Shrimp (as an entree), Stateline Scampi, and Tortuga Tacos were all very good. Our server Karen did an outstanding job during a busy Friday evening keeping our drinks refreshed and checking in periodically to make sure everything was ok. We never felt rushed while the service was prompt and professional.

My wife and I went for dinner on Saturday night on a whim. We sat at the bar and enjoyed some nice conversation with the bartender as well as other patrons. We ordered food service at the bar and it was delicious. The food at Oyster Rock is always very good and continues to be so.

We were quickly seated at a window. Slow to get a drink but waiter was busy. Friendly and helpful staff. Good food tips provided. Shrimp and scallops very nice. Walked around docks after. Very enjoyable.

Great atmosphere without the fake crab shack look. We enjoyed eating on the water and the service was good. We had a peck of steamed oysters that were quite delicious and cooked to perfection! What a treat since it seems these are getting ore difficult to find. We also had a house salad that had good homemade salad dressing (I had blue cheese, my husband had citrus vingearette, which were good. I wish the base of the salad was mixed greens not just iceberg lettuce. :( Other than that it was very good and we will go back.

Our first time at Oyster Rock and it was great. The entrees were heaping, actually we couldn't finish our plates. The service was awesome, LaWanda was our server. My only negative was the metal chairs got to be a little painful after a while, cushions please.
