We tried this place based on reviews from another website. I must admit I had seen cautions in reviews about the oysters, but I thought to myself "these Georgians don't know good oysters". Having lived on the Florida gulf coast and near enough to the North Carolina coast to get same day seafood I am well accustomed to eating oysters,... More

We have enjoyed every meal here. Raw oysters, fried seafood, great soups and much more on the menu. Crazy decor...hogpog type...doesn't take away from our meals. Friendly staff...efficient too.

My husband and I ended up here quite by accident and were very pleasantly surprised. The fish was very good and not greasy (fried) the shrimp was very good and the sides equally as good. We loved the coziness of this little place.

I had driven by the Oyster Bay Seafood Café many times, but never went in. I met a friend there for dinner and I couldn't believe it. The atmosphere was so comfortable and cozy. The food was so tasty I can't wait to go back. Prices are reasonable and the service is exceptional.

From the look of the little joint from the Lawrenceville square, you would never guess how great their food is. This is one of our go-to restaurants for date night. Never fails, always delicious and the staff is friendly. We have taken the kids here and they loved it as well 😊

Looks like the restaurant has been there for 50 years with the way it is decorated. Fun place! Food is very good. I liked the po boy sandwich and really liked the Shrimp pasta was quite spicey with very good flavor. The staff was very accommodating to our big party.

Thank flynatl
