Great food & service! No wait time. We were seated right away, however we had to eat outside on the patio, glad we had nice weather. I would recommend eating here.

Food is very good, beer very cold, Service could be a bit better, but then, it could be better in many places! Specials on week-days are worth going for.

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.
