Although the name implies that Oysters are their specialty, they are known for doing all their seafood very well. And although I'm not a huge seafood fan, I do really enjoy their crab claws. I have also tried the Butter Pecan Mahi, which was surprisingly good. But even more than that, I love it for something totally unrelated - the cheese grits! They are hot and creamy and satisfying and absolutely beckon me even when it is a million degrees outside!
As far as the atmosphere is concerned, it's a pretty typical beach place, with pictures of fish and fishing paraphernalia all over the walls. Still, it's fun and personal. The service is usually very warm and friendly, although I have encountered a few servers who seemed to be easily irked with us "late lunchers". I have a little message for those servers: I'm sorry we have the nerve to come and enjoy a meal when we don't have to wait an hour and can hear ourselves think! Rest assured, your tip will reflect your desired "quiet time".
One of my all-time favorite things about dining here is the gift shop! Sure, they have the typical t-shirts and shot glasses, but they also have lots cute boutiquey things (which will, admittedly, appeal more to girls than guys) and although there is generally a "beachy" theme to a lot of what they have to offer, there's lots of cute gifts. At one point several of us stared for at least 10 minutes at a toy puppy dog that was rolling in the floor laughing. I have no idea why that amused us so much, but it did!
