Best oystyers on the half shell for a reasonable price. Everything on the menu is great especally the crawfish poboys and the fried green tomatoes are fabulous. Great atmosphere is great but is a really busy place.

Excellent raw oysters, kids and hubby loved it. Clam chowder was fresh and wings were great. Even showed my 8 year old how to shuck an oyster! Reasonable prices. We will be back.

The wait was a bit long but it was a Friday night so it's to be expected. The food is phenomenal and the people are friendly and attentive.

Definitely not a classy place. Well used bar type atmosphere. Service was fast and helpful. Oysters on half shell fresh and good size. Oyster Rockfeller just average and bland. Cold beer.

To start, the food at Dusty’s is really good. My wife, kids, and I finished 2 dozen of the Dustybaked oysters. Highly recommend. Baked with bacon, cheese, and onions. I also really liked the fried shrimp. A few things to understand: the place is small...More

Oysters. That's all you need to know. Well, there's the oddity/uniqueness of the dollar bills hanging everywhere, but if it's oysters you want, you've come to the right place. It was recommended by a couple of friends, and I know why. Prices are great, service...More

No they don't take reservations. It is a great little beach oyster bar. It's also one of the most popular. It's not supposed to be fancy. If you get there around 5pm it's not as crowded. We sit at the bar & eat, which is... More
