Great little place with super seafood and one-of-a-kind atmosphere. Grouper, flounder, shrimp were all flavorful. Hush puppies are excellent. Reasonable prices, good portion sizes.

Excellent oysters! Granddaughter ordered the ' gator tail' and gave it a rave review. Robin, our waitress was attentive, efficient and very personable. A definite positive experience which we will repeat when we escape the winter cold next year.

Gary's has been around for a long time. And it's understandable. Known for the oysters, they do not disappoint. They are large, fresh and delicious. Early bird menu is really good too. Regular menu is a bit pricey for the place. But well worth going...More

Tonight was our first time going to Gary's Oyster Bar. The food was delicious and the beer was cold. Our waitress was friendly and the service was fast. We had conch fritters, a dozen raw oysters and the broiled seafood sampler, and everything was delicious....More
