This place looks like a dive bar, but the appeal is fresh grouper and oysters. They also serve large, oversized burgers, but we were here for the seafood. Fresh grouper sandwiches, prepared with a variety of spices (we chose jerk and "spiced"). The sandwiches were a bit small, but very tasty and the price was very reasonable. Also tried the oysters, which are advertised as being fresh every day. We had ours baked with garlic and parmesan cheese and they were heavenly!! Very friendly wait staff and just across the street from FSU! Don't let the outside appearance fool you...this place has great food!!

Off the beaten path, FRESH food & a great, funky atmosphere! Oysters that are good sized & FRESH! The grilled grouper sandwich...have it with Bird's Seasoning, grilled onions, lettuce, tomato & parmesan...WOW! One of the owners, Trey, personable & genuine. This place is far from fancy, but they serve up delicious food & beer...Sweet Water 420 Pale Ale is a new fave! This will be a regular stop for food when in Tally!

I've been eating at Bird's since it opened, the burgers are awesome. You won't find a better burger imho. The burger is great with just bacon, but you can kick up a notch and add peanut butter and/or egg to it.

This place may look like a dive, but it has the most delicious grouper sandwiches! Their French fries and onion rings were fabulous too!
