So far our culinary experience in the south has been exceptional...then...we chose the Noisy Oyster and it changed drastically. I found the food to be mediocre at best. The oysters were not fresh and they were served with one slice of lemon and enough cocktail sauce for two oysters. Their 35 year old crab dip recipe was HORRIBLE...VERY BLAND ... probably mixed with some generic shredded cheese...Yuk! Don't bother to spend your money here when there are so many restaurants that are so much better. I also thought it was dirty. In fairness, it is on a street corner with open windows, but everything could use a good scrub.

Please accept our apology for your experience while visiting Noisy. We do our best to serve local and fresh seafood, however depending on seasons and harvest sometimes we have to outsource along the coast for certain menu items. There is no excuse for a dirty establishment and are very sorry it was in that condition- leadership will be notified. Thank you for coming in, and for the review- we always appreciate honest feedback

Four of us ate lunch at the Noisy Oyster. We had two of the low country boils with shrimp, crab legs, clams and oysters. The food was awesome. The only problem was that the oysters weren't opened. That's where Tara stepped in. She actually attempted to open the oysters herself but eventually took them back to the kitchen to get them opened. We were a demanding bunch but Tara was a good sport and was really attentive to our needs. Very fun experience and great food!

My wife and I shared the Oyster Clam boil, she didn't care for clams or oysters but with all that came in the boil shrimp, potatoes, corn on the cob, sausage plus all the side we had plenty to eat. The atmosphere was fun and their happy hour great good cold beer. A unique southern dining experience very friendly staff.

This place was full of people, probably because its close to the Market areas. We both has fish, Blackened Salmon and Snapper with a choice of chips and potatoes plus real veg.

The food was great, a bit pricy but worth it! The service was outstanding and the atmosphere was appealing....
