This place has lost its luster. Oysters and hush puppies are good, but everything else I've tried is bland. It's stuffy, over priced, overrated, and seems to cater to an older crowd. Too many choices on the island to keep going here. I'm retiring my Old Oyster Factory following.

We arrived sun eve March 9th & were seated at outside table & given menus. There were 4 tables seated outside and we were ignored for 20-30 minutes. We noticed several problems with customer service around us - one couples drinks went to wrong table...at that point we asked to be seated in the bar where our new server Juan took excellent care of us and literally saved the evening for us! He was very busy but made us feel like we were a priority - the food was great! Juan needs to be trainer in chief for the young servers who don't know what they are doing! Thank You Juan!

On a busy Saturday night we had the best experience. We sat at the bar so we could get the happy hour specials. We had the best time watching Craig , Nick and Roger as they worked together so flawlessly. They were very attentive and entertaining. The food was awesome but spending time talking and laughing with these guys will definitely make us return. Thanks for the great experience.

This is a great place to dine. I had never been here before on previous visits to HHI. This a popular spot so make a reservation or go early. There was a 2 hr wait the night we left. We dined outside with live music. Cooper was our waiter and he was fantastic, on the ball and did a good job.

I felt the prices were high. My kids only eat pasta plain so $15 was a bit much (she was over 12) for plain pasta.

The view is great too. Don't miss this place next time you are in HHI.

We were walk ins, front staff was rude, sat us outside at a postage stamp of a table. We walked out after nobody came to the table after 10 minutes! Not paying the high price for the food at a low price reception. Moved on....
