I met some friends here but was a little worried as I drove to the restaurant. Luckily, the food was worth the trip! I had fried shrimp which was excellent. The service was solid. I will return on my next visit to Montgomery.

Old school dive (in a good way) and oyster bar. Solid southern sea food fair; oysters, shrimp and catfish. Everything was fresh and well prepared. The service was friendly and quick. Easily handled a large group for lunch.

Got taken here by some locals and really enjoyed it. The Oysters were huge, some of the biggest I have ever seen. The drinks were flowing. It was a very unique place and I would go back there for sure.

Stopped here after a google search because they said they allowed dogs! And they most certainly did! We had evacuated and this was our first stop. The oysters were great! Also had boiled shrimp and fries. I really liked the atmosphere. A great place to...More
