This is a great spot to go in beautiful downtown Greer. They have great oysters, we usually order a few oyster rockefeller, and then a couple orders of steamed. They will also surprise you with outstanding sushi. This is a great place to go with the family.

This is a great setting in the much improved City of Greer. This is a great place for a drink and dinner. Great place for a bucket of oysters. In my opinion the rest of the menu could use improvement. Great place to hang out with friends though!

It's my second time in this restaurant and I was not dissapointed. I ordered sushi and it was very good. The owner was there talking to us and very nice. Service was good!

"The kitchens backed up" this was the greeting we received as our group of five walked in the door for our 7 o'clock reservation....wow?! The food was good enough. The service was okay. The overall experience was below average. We're going to take a couple years off from this restaurant. If your family is looking for just a so-so dining... More

The Great Bay Oyster House is the oldest fine dining restaurant in Greer and we had never gone there. For our sixth anniversary we made reservations and went there. My gosh what we have been missing all these years! The Oysters Rockefeller was outstanding! I then had their fish platter. The cocktail sauce was as great as the cocktail sauce,... More

If I could rate this on food alone I would give GBOH a 5 star rating. However, good service or in this case bad service really makes an impact. Our service was horrible! The waitress was never around. We had to constantly ask for beverage refills and even had to get up to find our own bottle of ketchup. The... More

I've eaten here once before and had a good experience. We celebrated my daughter's wedding reception in their back room. It was a small wedding with about 30 total people in attendance. They had two servers for all of us. We waited a long time getting our drinks before our meal. They took all of our food orders at the... More

Been to Great Bay visiting family a couple of times. Feels strange ordering fish where we consider quite a distance from ocean but we have been pleasantly surprised. I love their salmon very tasty, I had it with risotto and fried had with fries. We both would order again whenever we are fortunate enough to get back to Greer.
