Old style Florida restaurant. We've eaten there for many years maybe two, or three, times a year. The fried food is pretty good, like fish and chips, but I prefer plain, rather than seasoned, fries. I do not have a particular entre to recommend.

We love this place. The tuna is awesome. Order it blackened with the red bliss potatoes and the cole slaw. Cole slaw has tiny bits of pineapple in it and is really good. You can sit outside and see alligators, turtles, ducks and birds. Kitchen is very quick even though they are very busy. Place is always busy but is... More

AMOB is an excellent choice for reasonably priced food. Children eat really cheap. Many seafood choices. Fridays have all you can eat fish and chips. Thursdays has prime rib specials.This restaurant is very casual. The service is good.

The Oyster Bar on 41 (Tamiami Trail) is ALWAYS packed it seems, but worth the wait. The atmosphere is fun (although loud at times), but the food is always consistently good. We enjoy the fresh fish selections and never have had a bad meal there. The owners are on site often and like to be sure you are enjoying the... More

Served by a nice lady from Eastbourne. Last time we were here was one July, when it was quiet. This time was well busy even by midday, so we were glad to find space outside. The food is always good and the prices very fair. The house chardonnay was very fresh and made a great spritzer.

We have been back to AMOB three times in our month in Florida. We always have to wait because it is so popular but there is seating on the porch while you wait for a table. My husband loves the fish and chips all you can eat on Mondays. I have tried the salmon prepared in three different ways...I like... More

Revisited the AMOB after visiting in the summer. Very happy to find a lovely NZ Sauvignon blanc on the menu for a very reasonable price. Had spicy seafood gumbo followed by crab cakes which were both plentiful & delicious! My partner who is not a seafood eater had chicken tenders (huge portion) then ribs which he said were some of...

Dinner with friends here on a Sunday evening. Brief wait for a table at about 630pm toward end of busier hours at the restaurant. Staff all very nice and engaging. Attentive wait staff. Casual atmosphere and dress. Paper towel roll hangs from ceiling at each table- handy, and indicative of the relaxed attitude. Easy access, close to I-75, plenty of... More

We had a hard time finding a parking spot and there were so many people waiting for tables inside that we didn't want to put our names on the list. However, they have a patio and we were able to get a table outside (it was a little cool) without any waiting. We just ordered 12 raw oysters, an order... More
