This is your basic clam shack, but elevated, literally! The location overlooking the marshes of the Apalachicola River is beautiful and relaxing. We appreciated the option to sit inside, outside on a screened porch, or outside on a deck. The binoculars on the table available...More

Everything is great - food, view ambience, etc. Oysters of course. You gotta try the Southern Fella, they're special. Oysyers, collards and bacon lead the way. Go.

The oysters on the half shell were good, but the service was slow and VERY unfriendly. We decide we will not be going back there !!

I have to admit I always get the oysters. When you walk in they hand you a menu and after you decide what you want you go up to the counter and order. The staff is amazing, always friendly and attentive to your needs. You...More
