First visit for me. Friend had shrimp basket for $13.95 and I had the Bam Bam Shrimp Tacos (2) on flour tortillas with a small side of cold slaw for $9.50. Food was hot and fresh and delivered to our table overlooking the water. There is a small selection of craft draft. This is a nice spot and happy hour starts at 2 pm. Only drawback for me was the classic rock blaring from a nearby speaker. Otherwise, no complaints and I will be back.

Not a big place, not much parking but it's on the water and has great food, what more could you want. We sat outside on the lower deck very peaceful. Not far from Eglin AFB if your there visiting someone. We will be back next time we are in town!

We arrived at about 6 on a Monday so did not have any problems withe the size of the place or parking. Ordered the Gouda and bacon oysters, oysters doc-a-feller, and a dozen raw oysters with a vanilla porter. Finished with another porter and shared the captain's platter (fish, shrimp, oysters and fries). This place is easily one of my new favorites. Food was excellent, beer was tasty and the staff was friendly and helpful. My only regret is that I did not Uber there and have another porter.

We went here last night with friends. We go here every couple of months. It is NOT fancy but certainly not a dump. We would call it "casual" atmosphere. You can sit inside our outside on the many decks. We sat inside because it was a tad cool last night. You pick your own table and pick up you own menu. You order up at the desk when you are ready. Refill you own drinks. Service at the desk is fast and friendly. You can simply ask them to run a tab if you intend to stay for a while. We would MUCH prefer a waitress when we go out - just not what they do here - wish they did. THIS IS AN OYSTER BAR. It has other food but - do not know about the other food - we have the oysters, raw, cooked and topped with a host of different ingredients. WE LOVE THEM. Service is fast and delivered to the table. The entertainment is right in front of you. Last night they had Sputzy. He was absolutely the best one man show we have ever seen anywhere. He has a great voice, a great sound system, is a incredible guitar player, and sings a wide section of different things. He is fun, friendly and a great musician. Over all - we simply had a GREAT time. This is not a 5 star place - it is not trying to be one. It is a wonderful little place hidden away on Tom's Bayou with amazing oysters and a casual fun atmospehere. You can come by boat. We will be going back.
