  • ChefMozThis is my favorite place to eat on the causeway. The service is good and the food is excellent. The seafood is fresh and the food always comes out hot and how you ordered it.

  • ChefMozThe Original Oyster House in Gulf Shores always has great, fresh seafood, excellent service, and the prices are reasonable. The only downside to the place is that everyone knows about it. Parking is limited and difficult to find during peak seasons. The wait can be long - up to 2 1/2 hours.

    55555 by Britney S.


  • Pauline P.Overrated and touristy. Clam chowder, piña coladas and red beans and rice were good. Their seafood doesn't taste fresh and you have to make your own cocktail sauce. Good view though.

    55555 by Pauline P.

    55555 by Rebecca W.

  • CJ S.I ordered the buttered pecan mahi with a side of cheese grits. If your in for something new, give it a shot! The glazed pecan top ties in the taste of the dish.

  • ToniEveryone is soooo friendly

    55555 by Toni


  • Ashley W.Very overrated. Salad bar was not fresh and not worth the extra $2.75

    55555 by Andrew M.


  • Dan B.Great spot...you must get the cheese grits

    55555 by Dan B.


  • Kyle M.Easily the worst experience all week. You could use the calamari as bungee cord, it's so overlooked. Replaced it with the worst cheeseburger for my son. Amazingly paid for them both. Brutal.

    55555 by Bill C.


  • Sharon C.I love their salad bar. Oysters are good but sometimes a bit chewy. The wait to get seated is sometimes a bit long. Nice shops around to browse while waiting. Hushpuppies are great!

    55555 by Sharon C.


  • Cheryl M.The chocolate peanut butter pie is to die for! It's huge!

    55555 by Cheryl M.
