We had lunch here based on trip advisor reviews and were not disappointed. This place has been in business since 1945 and one visit will show why. It is not fancy. The food comes in baskets and you use plastic utensils and drink out of plastic cups. But if you like a down-home kind of place, this is the real deal. The service was great, the food was great, and the waitress we had was very pleasant and really seemed to enjoy her job. They have sweet tea, not just iced tea like so many Florida restaurants. The prices are very reasonable. I only wish it was closer to where I live.
Some details: Our GPS took us the wrong way on Oakland Ave. It is located between S. Oakland and S. Adams. As others say, there is limited parking and it shares parking with a garage but that did not bother us. Be advised Cash Only. eat in or take out. Not open Sunday and they currently close at 6 PM except for Friday which is 7 PM. Also, the name of the place on the menu is "Shell Oyster Bar", not "Shell Oyster House".
