POH is overrated. The bar tending staff bragged about their cheeseburger and mac & cheese dishes and both were underwhelming. I am a local and I've eaten here about 5 times in the past for work functions and most of the food is fried or...More

Decided to stop and try this place out. We were given a recommendation by a local and told to try the Alligator Cheesecake. It was amazing. I highly recommend the place with it's decor and very attentive waitstaff.

We ordered fried oysters but it was hard to tell if we had oysters as the breading was so thick, you couldn't find the bivalve. We ate oysters all over the South over a two week period, and this place, an oyster house no less,...More

What kind of wine selection do they have? I see that they are known for their great beer selection, but my wife doesn't like beer but does drink white wine.
