You'll never tell people about the fancy oyster bar you just went to. Or the fancy seafood restaurant. However, if you want local authentic, this is the place. It's a bar with a restaurant. It's famous for its oysters, and rightly so. The waiters are mostly long timers and it doesn't take too many visits for them to get to know you. The burgers are great but the seafood really shines. Nothing fancy, just great gumbo and fried fish. I've never tried any of their steaks or "non-local" seafood, but have been told it's also tasty. Definitely non pretentious and well worth the visit.
