We popped into the Oyster House restaurant as we'd arrived in Everglade City late afternoon and most other eateries had closed. We'd also visited before, several years ago and knew it was a friendly and comfortable place to eat. The menu was locally sourced fodder, thankfully, and also catered for those that don't like seafood. We enjoyed a great meal, service was good and priced reasonably we felt and yes I'd go back.

The Oyster House is an interesting 'local' institution, relaxed atmosphere and folksy decor. Food was good, a bit pricey but very filling.

We stopped in for an early lunch as we were exploring the area.
We had a warm welcome and good service.
The place has lots of quirky memorabilia all over the walls.
The menu is great for snacks or a full on meal.
The homemade clam chowder was super delicious, we also had frogs legs and alligator baskets which were great. Defiantly worth a visit if in the area and looking for something different.

We ate here 3 times in 5 days, a tribute to the food being good and the limited number of restaurants open after 5 p.m. The menu has a good variety of seafood but sides are limited to fries & baked potatoes. Salads were good. I twice had the Everglades City specialty stone crabs which I had never eaten before. The waitress was very good about explaining how to eat them and they were very good. My husband had oysters twice. Service can be a bit slow and they start to sweep up around you when it is getting close to closing time. It seems to be a big locals spot and the bar seems to do good business. It is not a fancy place but you will get a good meal.

Disappointed to be told that there were no stone crabs although the sign out front calls it the stone crab capital of the world. Fish tacos were very underwhelming, tasted like catfish, not grouper. Steamed shrimp were mushy. Nice atmosphere and friendly service, but the food was underwhelming.
