Great place! Waitress was very attentive. Steamed shrimp was perfectly cooked, as was the fried grouper. Staff was friendly to all the tables, seemed like there were a lot of locals - always a good sign!

Don't let the name of this place fool you. The steamed oysters were pathetic. 3 'oysters' didn't even fill one cracker. When we complained that the oysters were ridiculously small, we were brought just 3 more which were again, pathetic. Don't mind paying market price...More

We cannot control the oysters that are harvested and sent to the restaurant. Oysters are a natures commodity . Oysters during the summer months are difficult to come by and due to the heat wave in south carolina we have had difficulty in finding oysters

Absolutely good for conversations. The tables are nicely spaced and while there is music, and maybe even some television playing in one area, my friend and I had no issues with noise levels or being able to hear one another.
