Best fried oysters I've ever eaten and the sides were delicious! Great service and loved being right by the water watching the boats come in. Could not believe how fast we got our food. Can't wait to go back!

Absolutely the slowest service of any restaurant we have eaten at while at St George. We have eaten here several years in a row and each time it takes forever to get your food . Already over an hour and still no food. 😕

If you are looking for Apalachicola Oyster, raw grilled or fried this is the place to be. Eat oysters next to the boats with the gulls screeching and the breeze in your face.

As all the people below mentioned, with a group that size, you will really need to set the visit up ahead of time with the restaurant. The restaurant has the space, but would need to be sure it has enough servers on board... More

Yes there is outside dining. I think there is handicap access, but I'm not 100% sure. I do not remember seeing any dogs. I suggest that you call them at (850) 653-9364.

Most of them were about $12 to $14, with some in the $20's. Portions are good sized and they come with two sides - actually a very good value.
