“Delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 March 2012

We started off with oyster monterey, which were very good, though I could not taste the sherry. For our entrees we had soft shell crab, fried oysters, shrimp and grouper. All were delicious. We were seated outside, it was March, and the weather was nice.

“Oysters needed washing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 March 2012

My husband and I enjoy eating raw oysters and were looking forward to having some from the oyster capital. The oysters were a good size, and they gave us a baker's dozen. However, the outside of the oysters were dirty with sand and seaweed. This got into the oysters as we ate them...not very appetizing. The outdoor seating on the water was nice. The price of $11 per dozen was higher than we found at other places in town.

“It's not just about the oysters!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2012

This place is a favorite of my best friend and I. We eat there at least once during our trek into Apalach for shopping. The smoked fish is wonderful and the choice of oysters makes it a hard decision- so we usually end up ordering 2-3 different kinds. Ask about their daily drink special- usually very tasty and sitting outside makes it even better!

“Don't fix it if it ain't broke....”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2012

Boss has always been our favorite restaurant...great seafood and i love the curly firs with a few hidden corn nuggets in the mix. However, i was sooo disappointed that they now only serve frozen crinkle fries with their meals. Heck, i can do better than that at Captain Ds. The seafood is still good but the curly fries were the extra touch that set them apart from the other restaurants. :-(
