A friend of ours along with us for the trip said she had eaten there so we decided to give it a try. Our meals were various from the fried combo platter to stuffed flounder and some grilled mahi. The server was great and done a great job explaining their menu considering most of us had never visited there. The... More

Went to the Oyster Bar recently with friends the week after spring break there. this is a very pleasant restaurant with both outside and inside seating in a very large dining room. The restaurant has a feel of an upscale place, especially in the inside dining room. Service was very prompt and courteous. The menu is quite extensive with many... More

My family frequently visits the Perdido Key/ Pensacola area, and we make sure to always eat at the Oyster Bar once if not more. The service is great (the waiters are always so friendly), and the food is exceptional. The restaurant never disappoints us. Also the view at there is stunning, and the sunsets are gorgeous.

It's just bad anymore...I think it is just luck of the draw. I've read some of the positive reviews so it has to be a pot luck thing. It's a philosophical thing, no proper training and the whole restaurant has taken on the personality of the table visitor. Surly. I know business is good, I can see it...it's one of... More

Third time is the charm it seems...Since we would be in the area longer this year, and heard there changes had been made, we thought OK, one last time. Glad we did. We have now enjoyed a delicious lunch on the outside deck and 2 very nice meals in the dining room. The different fish choices we have tried were... More

We both had the stuffed grouper. The restaurant set us outside, which was great because we had our toddler with us. He was able to be entertained by the large boats going by. The food was good but, kinda small for the amount of money. We ordered the key lime pie and the New Orleans bread pudding. The key lime... More

I understand that some changes have been made to staff and menu recently. I had the best oyster po'boy I've ever had with delicious house chips. My partner had the jambalaya and really enjoyed it as well. The waiter was attentive, the food was fresh and correct temperature, the serving size was JUST RIGHT- not too small or too large....

Had dinner on Thursday at 6:00. The place was packed but we got seated in minutes. We had pan fried grouper and fried scallops. Both very good. We took a piece of bread pudding to go. When we ate it later that evening, we found a hair.

We went for a late lunch, unfortunately too windy to sit outside. Companion had seafood platter, very standard, okay for what it was. I had the fish of the day..big mistake! Instead of one of the fantastic Gulf fish, it was asian farm raised mystery fish. Why would a higher-priced restaurant on the intracoastal waterway serve that? The waitress seemed... More

Having tried shrimp all long the Gulf,this was absolutely the best , huge succulent and tasty.The others had very good snapper stuffed with seafood and shrimp and andouille .The key lime pie and bread pudding were excellent as was the seafood gumbo.Fries not so crisp those at the Half Shell Oyster House Biloxi were the tops.
