Thanks to TripAdvisor, I found this out of the way place that I didn't know existed! The three guys in our party loves oysters, so we went here to check things out. They were not disappointed! Us three ladies had a chicken dinner, shrimp dinner, and a fish dinner, and we enjoyed ours as well. It is not fancy. It... More

It's small. It's tucked away off the main road. It's nondescript. And it's fantastic. This favorite of locals never disappoints and I've never had a bad meal there. There's nothing fancy about the place but for a great seafood meal that exemplifies Pensacola, this is a great option. All the dishes I've tried have been excellent but I always end... More

We went there for lunch and it was perfect. Atmosphere was inviting, our server was very friendly and food was amazing. We had baked oyster sampler platter (which was so reasonably priced) and it was delicious. Oysters were fresh and very nice size. The menu had a lot of options of fresh seafood from mullet to seafood platter. If you... More

We gathered here with our extended family, including 11 adults and 6 children, and the staff handled our large party very well. We couldn't all fit together at one table, but they did a great job of getting our orders taken and food brought out all at the same time. We had a nice view of the marina at sunset.... More

Everything on their menu is fantastic! They even have homemade banana pudding! Located on the bayou, so enjoy the view while you enjoy the food.

Was in the Destin area for a few days of vacation and ventured over to Pensacola for a day of sight seeing. I tend to like to find those hole in the wall places and this place seemed to fit the bill based on what I read. Was there mid afternoon, way past the lunch crowd. Service was good, but... More

If you are looking for a local, casual place that serves up the best oysters in Florida, this is the place. Dale Rooks has specialized in oysters for 30 years and the Supreme Steamed and Crabsters (with fresh crabmeat on top) cannot be beat. The gumbo is authentic and great and the beer is cold. If yon are in Pensacola,... More

When you want a wonderful, laid back, completely unpretentious place for authentic seafood, a variety of kinds of oysters, and great hush puppies, this is the place to go! On a bayou in a local neighborhood backroad, you might need your GPS to find it. We had oysters on the half shell, fried mullet, shrimp salad, and even chicken and... More

I used to live in Pensacola and whenever I visit I always make sure to have a meal here. While not very big and located off the beaten path on Bayou Texar, it is mostly frequented by locals who know how good and fresh everything is. Their oysters on the half shell are plump, flavorful and succulent. The shrimp, grouper,... More
