My husband loves the raw oysters and the fried flounder! My kids love the fried pickles and cheese sticks! I love the Cajun 3 cheese baked oysters and the fried grouper when they have it.

We love that it is small, local and reasonably priced. We have been eating at Hunts since the 90's. Even non seafood eaters can find something to eat there. The wait can get rpetty long so we try to go right at 11am or around 3:30pm in the afternoon.

Shorts, flip flops and tank tops fit in just as good as anything dressier.

Our party of 4 showed up for a late night oyster treat (around 9PM). There was still a crowd outside. We waited about an hour, but the wait was worth it. We ate so many oysters starting with raw, then steamed, then jalapeño and cheese. As mentioned in other posts, this place is very informal. The wait staff was very friendly and it was fun watching the guys behind the oyster bar shucking oysters. We were glad we came here to have some oysters.

Bring your kids and grandkids. It is very small but the food is real good. There's never a long wait to get your food but you may have to wait an hour to get in. Wear comfortable clothes because it is very informal.

This is just a simple hole in the wall. I got alligator which was delicious. The hubby had fried shrimp which wasn't bad either. The wait wasn't very long but we got there before 5. The service was not good at all. The could use more waiters & more tables

Best Oysters around! Great Value for the money! Small hole in the wall but food makes up for it! Go early and try to get at the bar for best service..
