The food is always delicious here. Anything on the menu is good. I especially like the grilled and fried shrimp. There's usually a wait but it's worth it. During the week is usually a better time to go to avoid the long wait.

This restaurant has been around for decades, and still is consistently excellent, usually requiring a wait before being served. It is small, although larger than the original location, but the service is prompt so that the delay isn't excessive. All of the seafood dishes are excellent, but they specialize in freshly shucked oysters that are always great.

Can't beat the price for a dozen raw oysters: $8.99 when we were there. The guys are shucking faster than U can eat them. Plan on a wait outside if you go after 5pm. Also try baked, steamed, fried or cheesy oysters. They have a regular menu full of seafood. Small place and extremely casual. But the tables turn fast.... More

I've been here twice and found the Oysters and service excellent both time. The other menu items are only so-so. This is a oyster bar, they serve oysters and cold beer. Go for the Oysters on the shell, sit at the bar and enjoy. If you want other seafood dishes, find someplace else.

I used to live in PCB but never ate here due to the wait line. Today I had a grouper sandwich $11. The piece of fish was half the size of the bun and the thickness was not as thick as the tomato slice. I asked if it was local and was told it was all frozen from Sysco. Go... More

Visited on a Saturday after browsing at the Farmer's Market across the street. Got in line before it even opened! It was a very laid back atmosphere, with great service & great oysters! We had raw oysters & an oyster platter sampler of all the baked varieties! We also split an order of fried oysters! All was delicious! All the... More

Hunts Oyster Bar is a small restaurant known for their oysters. It's usually very busy and it pays to go off hours. The oysters are great and so is the popcorn shrimp.

The locals told us to try this place before leaving town, so we went into town and even though this was a hole in the wall it was quite good. There is no waiting room inside so be prepared to wait outside in any weather condition.

This place is a super cute little bar and grill. We sampled a lot of different dishes, including the Raw Oysters and Alligator Tail (fried). Both were firsts for us and both were very good. We all had seafood dinners and everyone liked their meals very much. (The kiddos didn't enjoy the Oysters but we weren't expecting them too.) We... More

Great food and atmosphere, but a little wait to get in the door! Depending on what time you arrive, you maybe facing a 30 to 45 minute wait. But hang around you will be glad you did.
