This was our first time in the area and The Oyster House was recommended to us. We got there between 5:30 and 6, and only had around a 5 minute wait. The service was great and so was the food. We will be back.

The food was delicious. But the service was amazing! This was the friendliest staff I have ever encountered. Call out to Brendle and Teresa! I would recommend a stop here to anyone visiting Gulf Shores!
