Drive by this eatery not knowing anyting about it and you would not dream of eating there: that is unless you noticed that the tiny parking lot was packed and that other businesses lots across the street were being used by Jim Shaw's customers.

The place is old, kinda shabby but just happens to serve some of the best seafood available in this town. It is a favorite of the locals who give it complete loyalty. Their specialty is oysters but on a given night, one also usually has a choice of grouper, redfish, trout, slamon and others available with baked potatoes, french fries and salads.

There are two dining areas, the bar and the restaurant. The latter has waitress service and has an early bird special Monday through Thursday. The bar is usually crowded and less formal but serves the full complement of dishes.

Considering the surroundings and the food, this eatery is a trifle on the expensive side but the food is invariably good and any problems(rare in my experience) are taken care of cheerfully and promptly.

May have given this a 4 star if we had not just come from the Florida Panhandle. (where we ate at 4 and 5 star seafood restaurants). This is a small restaurants that has excellent service. The prices are good and the food is good but not outstanding. The turnover is very high so the locals use this a lot.

Went to Jim Shaw's with two co-workers due to the reviews on Trip Advisor. The food was very good. The oysters were a little on the small side but everything else was excellent. I had a fried soft shelled crab and fried alligator. I didn't care for the breaded fries but that was just personal preference. The hush puppies were divine. Our server was very nice and took good care of us. I would certainly recommend this restaurant, especially since it is a local eatery.
