We've eaten here several times and the food never disappoints. I enjoy the oysters and grilled grouper and my wife enjoys fried shrimp and ceasar salad. Prices are VERY reasonable. Will continue to return.

I have enjoyed eating oysters at Fontaine's on N Highland previously, but this week was my first time to visit on a Tuesday. Big mistake on my part. Half-price for the house oysters is only $10.00 per dozen. Delicious. I'll be back on Tuesday.

The food was amazing. Bluepoint Oysters fresh and the Fried Catfish delicious. Lobster Roll is a must try. Juicy pieces. I am not a fan of Bloody Mary’s but these taste really good. Great atmosphere for family and friends. Will highly recommend you try it.

Went there with a couple friends that know the area well. It was one of their favorite places and I agree. Great food and nice outdoor eating space too! Don't care for the "valet" parking though, they basically drive your car about 10 feet from...More

Normally when Alaskan Snow Crab is on the menu, it trumps everything else but..., after recommendation from our server, I decided to try the Oyster Sampler and I was very happy I did! Delicious! Great service, great atmosphere...yup, check'em out if you haven't yet!
