ALL the oyster choices are excellent (be sure and try the angels on horseback) Steamed Carolina Shrimp fantastic (my favorite there) The crabcake was also wonderful They also offer a grilled fish dish of the day which never disappoints! Beautiful outside setting on the river (also covered patio seating and a bar inside) Friendly staff

This is one of those must - hole in the wall places. There is nothing fancy about this place but it has great oysters and a great view. It is part of an oyster farming operation and they have oysters from a variety of locations. Good selection of local craft beer. If you like oysters this place is for you.

If your not an oyster fan you might want to skip this place. The menu is small and limited for non seafood types. The steamed shrimp are pretty good but stick with the oysters.

They do have a few things for kids who don't like oysters and were very willing to accommodate the kids with grilled cheese.

If you have time get a tour of the oyster farming operations. I didn't know what to expect but it was fairly short and very interesting.

The staff quickly seated our group of 9 outside with a stunning view of the river front and marina. Remember they are a tasting room, and everything is a la carte. Baked oysters were a bit overcooked and small. The Bibb lettuce salad was delicious. One person had the scallops, thinking it would be his lunch, and was shocked to have 3 delivered in a basket. Those who ordered the shrimp, corn, and andouille sausage definitely made the best choice for a meal. Their desserts are outstanding. The pound cake came out still warm from the oven! Overall, the location compensates for the rather small portions and prices.

It's not the prettiest building you'll eat in, but the oysters and other dishes coming out of their kitchen are excellent. Have not found a bad dish on many visits. Most recent visit included oysters and crab-cakes, both excellent.

We loved sitting outside with a beautiful view of the waterfront while eating fresh oysters, drinking cold beer and chatting with our wonderful server. This place has the best quality of food and service in a very charming setting. It's unlike any of the other Croxton restaurants and was well worth going out of our way for. The drive to get there was beautiful too.
