We were seated and served very fast. The food is great as always and it has been years since our last visit. The fried shrimp was large and prepared perfect. The red sauce and coleslaw made fresh. Great atmosphere in a historical land marked building.

This is a restaurant that we visit again and again. The reason is excellent food. We have never been disappointed. Great services. Wonderful location. The entire menu from appetizers to dessert is delicious! Great prices! And the service--the nicest wait staff you will ever meet!

I've eaten seafood on both coasts and all along the gulf Coast, but no place makes seafood as good as S & D. You just can't go wrong.

Non-chain, excellent food and service, at reasonable prices. Has a main dinning area and a smaller more quiet area off the bar. Has a separate parking area located at Boll and Howard streets, about 100 feet from front door that is located on McKinney street. (Downtown Dallas parking is difficult to find.)

My husband and I ate here before a concert. The coleslaw is awesome. Fried oysters and shrimp were perfect and delicious. Everything tasted very fresh. Oysters were corn meal, hand breaded, fried just crispy. Creole rice and hushpuppies were good. I've had better gumbo but it was still good. Bread pudding was great. Service was excellent. This place is a... More

The food is incredible at S&D. BUTTER SAUCE. Also all the weight staff is extremely experienced and "seasoned" in the best way. All the fish entrees are great.

Went there on a Saturday afternoon and was very surprised on all levels. The service from start to finish was excellent. The waiter was very attentive and the oyster sauce he prepared at the table was top notch. I had raw oysters and they were fresh and very tasty along with the 1-1-1 roles and they hit the spot. My...

This is New Orleans style seafood in Dallas. There is a wide variety of seafood on the menu from gumbo to oysters, fish fried and grilled. Also lots of beer on tap. It has been in business for many years and recently expanded to a new dining room in the back. The service is consistently good, also a touch of... More

Hubby and I don't get to Dallas too often to eat, but found ourselves there on a Friday night. As so many people out & about, we expected long lines and an hour wait, but we were seated right away at S & D Oyster, albeit not the greatest table as it was right by the front door. Our waiter... More

We have been eating here for 30 years, so our perspective is a long one. Waiters and Service is always Top Notch! But the Prices have been Increased!! The French Fries were very, very greasy!! Hush Puppies were OK, but not great. We ordered the Fried Oyster Plate and the Fried Shrimp Plate and divide it in half. These Dishes... More
