“Up the creek was right up our alley!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We took a weekend get a way and walked the town, working up an appetite. It was too early for dinner so we went in for an appetizer. We sat out side which was very nice. The food was delicious and the shrimp were huge!! Will go back again next time we are in town!

“Confusing Joint”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 April 2012

Perfect location on the water, great name, strange place to eat!! They want you to order then sit down. They bring you your food and tell you to help yourself to cocktail sauce and lemons which our inside (it is really slow so not sure why they don't just bring it), then you proceed to get back up to pay. It may make sense when they are busy but it is just bad service when they are slow. i was not impressed with the oysters and they are basically sitting on an oyster bed! We prefer Papa Joes or Boss's but in all fairness, I have only been here once.

“Wonderful!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

This casual restaurant is upstairs but, the climb will elevate your spirits. Place your order at the counter, find a spot on the porch to eat and watch the coastal life of Florida unfold before your eyes. My wife and I shared the steamed oysters, steamed clams and the shrimp/lobster bisque which were perpared perfectly. We will certainly go again.

“Fantastic View.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

Best view of the river, and although we didn't eat any food the menu look delish. Had a very good draft beer and relished the view from the upper deck.

“It's the Oysters”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Casual atmosphere, friendly service, and lots of fresh Apalachicola Bay oysters at a reasonable price. There are other things on the menu, but it's the oysters that keep bringing me back.
