Calico Jack's Seafood House & Oyster Bar
Restaurant details
Reviewed 26 November 2013

We had the Crab cake appetizer, an a oyster and a shrimp Po Boy . Much to my surprise the crab cake was full of crab not just a bread cake, as I had feared. The sandwiches were "overloaded" with so much food, that you could barely pick them up and the seafood tasted fresh. The only negative point we had was the price of the oyster Po Boy was listed as one thing and the actual price was several dollars more on the receipt. When we pointed this out to our server, she just shrugged it off and said the price of oysters went up. Really? Then change your price on the menu or at least make mention to the customer when they order.

Have been going here for 17 years, clearly going downhill. The place looks beat up and run down, restrooms filthy. Owner was sitting at the bar drunk with his teenage kids listening to him rant.

Bar atmosphere with just side tables as a dining room. Surprisingly poor food for being so close to the Gulf. We won't be back...

Calico Jack's has been around for a long time.... And the reason is because it is good!!!! Like a true friend, you walk in and feel like you have have been in a time warp. It is familiar, but the quality is always there. The oysters are fresh either raw or steamed. The wings are soooo good. The service is friendly and attentive. If it's been a while since you stopped in, it is worth another visit.

Calico Jacks Oyster Bar is a casual seafood restaurant with large bar, several big screen TV's and family friendly. The full service bar has whatever you want for drinks. We have eaten here several times and the food is consistently good. The crab cakes are the best we have found in Florida. The hamburgers are big and juicy. The fish tacos were great also.
It is a great place for lunch or dinner anytime and the best place for a good time with friends before or after football games in the fall. Prices are very low for the quality o the food.
Service can be a bit slow on busy evenings but it is worth the wait.
