We went in a little later for lunch and it looked super busy compared to most other places in Apalach. But we had drinks quickly, soup and oysters shortly after that, They did well even being that busy. The view was great from the patio and the food was awesome too!

We thought the oysters were fantastic the first time we visited this est. but this time not so much. Maybe because we ordered the parmeson cooked and some were a little raw. We're just not raw oyster fans.

We had lunch outside and enjoyed the view. The food was good but the view was what made our lunch worth the price.

How sad to discover such a great eatery on the last day of our month-long stay on the Forgotten Coast! That being said, we are glad that we did in fact find it. We had seen it many times but weren't sure about going in - the outside of the building is deceiving, and having to go upstairs to see... More

This is one of my go to places in Appalach. Friendly people, great oysters, good beer selection and other great seafood. Sat outside watched a bald eagle over the river, ate raw oysters and Mahi Mahi fingers. Doesn't get much better at lunch. Great long Island tea also.

This casual oyster bar is not fancy dining, but has the best and freshest oysters of anywhere I've ever been. And the most varieties of preparation, from "naked and raw" to other raw with various toppings, to baked with parmesan cheese, baked "Mediterranean" (my favorite) and a number of others. The ambience is decidedly casual, as I believe places like... More
