Wife had “excellent” burger. I had Grouper. This is the 6th I have had while in Florida the last few weeks and it was the best, both in size and taste.
Ensure you don’t need to use the restroom....smelly and disgusting.
It is a “shack”...don’t overdress!

Great fresh oysters and grouper. Great cold beer and atmosphere. Oysters and the outside picnic table make it worthwhile when weather is nice.

Enjoy this funky, local, diner, drive in, and dive hole in the wall restaurant / bar. We went there on a recommendation from the bartender of the hotel we were staying at as we were passing thru Tallahassee. After dinner, when we went back to the hotel to find the bartender to thank him.
While they are well known for their oysters, it's the burgers that we were recommended. On the menu was a 10 ounce burger for $10.00 with your choice of three sides, fries, coleslaw, onion rings and a pickle spear. Sold! The burgers came as we ordered medium-well on a fresh grilled bun. Oh, I forgot to mention that on your burger you can also add, at no extra charge, lettuce, tomato, onion, or garlic. For a small charge, fifty cents to a dollar, you can add any number of items.
The burgers we some of the best we've ever had and at ten ounces, we had trouble finishing them. As an added plus, we happened to be there on a wednesday night and there was a bluegrass trio playing banjo, guitar and the electric bass. We were told the entertainment is a regular happening on Wednesdays from 5 - 8pm.
The place is medium sized and also has outdoor seating. Everything was very reasonably priced. Go to their website and check out their menu. They even have a suggestion box in the restaurant. Just follow the rules. Forget the chain burger joints. This is the place you want to eat. By the way, for three dollars more, you can get a 20 ounce burger. For another three dollars, you can add an extra patty. I don't know why you would, but the option is there!
Just so you know, they do take credit cards but on the menu there's a discount per meal for cash.

We went to Bird’s on Brounough and had raw oysters which were from Texas but were not salty like Texas oysters usually are. They went down rather easily with the cocktail sauce combined with horseradish. It is quite good. We ordered some baked oysters with Parmesan cheese and garlic which were very good. All this and the dog got to hang out with us at the picnic table outside.
