We had a great meal at Original Oyster House. I had fried shrimp and my daughter had shrimp Florentine, but dishes were very good. The salad bar was a nice touch, and had lots to choose from. Definitely worth going to!

We enjoyed the location on a bayou and the excellent service we received. The seafood we ordered was excellent and fairly priced. We would dine there again.
