Old Oyster Factory
Food was awful. We have eaten there many times but food lacks flavor and was way overpriced. Both tables near us complained about the food and told the waitress they couldn’t eat it.
Especially wanted to recognize our waiter Carlos. Food was exceptional with not a single doubt.
The food was outstanding as was the service. The smell in the outside dining was a little potent, but to be fair, it didn't take away from our experience. Would definitely recommend!
Great value on the happy hour. Only disappointment was the crab stuffed mushrooms. There was no crab in one and only a teaspoon in the other three. They were not good
We would have done better to come earlier. We needed to make reservation at 5:30 not 7:00. The place was packed. It was loud and we had three people waiting on us. None of them knew if someone had taken care of us.
We had a great time the previous Sunday. Great seats, not loud and good wait person.
Great food, poor service
Great food and company. Always great place to watch sunset
Food was ok and service was excellent. Asked for some off menu items and server came through completely.
Oysters were delicious but the fish was very overcooked. Payed a lot of money for an overcooked piece of fish
Dinner with good friends
It was beyond loud; couldn't hear the server, couldn't carry on a conversation, couldn't hear myself think. As for the food, the gumbo was quite good but the mahi-mahi was very dry and served with a mound of rice and an whole half of a head of broccoli. Couldn't wait to get out of there.
James was attentive and available when needed.
Food was good. Servers were friendly and knowledgeable. Prices were high as expected for any of the waterview restaurants.
Great view, awesome fresh seafood dishes. Oysters are highly recommended.
This has been a favorite location for years, we love sitting on the deck for the view. The staff was very pleasant. Love the oysters and tried the key lime Salmon, it didn’t disappoint. Ended the meal with wonderful chocolate.
We have been here numerous times and the food is always fantastic. The views are amazing, especially at sunset.
Second time at this restaurant. First time was excellent and so was this. So happy we made a reservation. Will be back in the spring.
Thank you for a wonderful evening, great meal and awesome service from Susie. Food cooked to perfection. Beautiful sunset in the background. Delicious chocolate cake for mugs bands birthday!
Even with a reservation we needed to wait in the bar area which was fine. The problem was there were 2 barternders and they were too busy servicing the wait staff and delivering food to other bar patrons. It took a good 10 minutes to put in a drink order.
Always wonderful food at Old Oyster, service was good, view is exceptional. Love it!
Our server was friendly and proved excellent service. Nice atmosphere with beautiful sunset view.
Used to be my favorite place. Just not the same. Food was very mediocre. Service and view were definitely the best part of the experience. I don’t mind paying for value. Will be looking for a new favorite restaurant next time we are on the island.
Everything was wonderful! The food,service,and atmosphere was perfect. We were on vacation and we always go back every year. Highly recommend!!!
Love this place! Everything about our dining experience was excellent, including when we got the bill and found out the restaurant is part of the Coastal Restaurant Group, and we happened to have a $10 coupon for that group! My husband and I both had the Blackened Carolina Catfish and my leftovers were just as good this morning as the meal was two days prior. We try to make it a point to dine at the OOF each time we come to HHI. You won’t be disappointed if you go. A tip though, MAKE A RESERVATION! Another tip, try to sit outside and enjoy the sunset.
Excellent meal and service! Old Oyster Factory never disappoints!
Food was cold! Sent it back twice! Manager comped my portion of the meal. Ordered Fred seafood dinner...
Shrimp had a fresh taste and lightly battered. Good hush puppies and slaw. Will return in the future
We had 2 servers, the one took drinks and appetizers, but never brought and communicated that we ordered the appetizers. We also never saw her again. The gentleman was an amazing server. He went above and beyond all night. The food was delicious and the view was perfect. Highly recommend the experience and food. The manager even took time out and apologized for the other server without us saying anything. Was a great evening and we will return.
Great restaurant! Good food and excellent service! I’ll be back!
Table of 4 with different entries. No one really liked the food. All said is was just ok and for the price was definitely not worth it. My plate was seafood medley. When it arrived, the food just did not look pleasing. The 2 pieces of broiled fish looked dry. The Oyster Rockefeller was the best tasting food on the plate. My wife got a special of tenderloin and fish on a stick with vegetables. The beef was tasty but the fish was just ok. Who would have thought the beef was better than the fish at a fish restaurant.
Don’t think we will go back unless it is for an oyster bakel
Great place fantastic views
Always our "go-to" restaurant for our guests. Food is consistently delicious and the views of the marsh and sunsets make it spectacular. The servers are always polite and prompt.
Excellent meal with spectacular view and friendly great server!
Perfect corner window table to watch the sunset. Seafood medley always a favorite choice, flounder done perfectly but the halibut was over cooked. Happy hour last week with another group of friends was spot on with everyone pleased with their choices, flatbreads, salads, shrimp tacos and sliders.
Wonderful views, really good food, great time. We ate outside and it was a perfect night.
We always love the Old Oyster Factory when we are on the island. We’ve been there for special occasions, like New Year’s Eve, as well as to watch a sunset. Food is always wonderful.
Flew in from out of town looking for fresh seafood for my birthday. Purchased the lobster, scallops and shrimp meal with baked potato and broccolini. Scallops was cold, baked potato wasn’t hot, lobster was chewy. Waitress was too busy to provide decent service and make sure everything was good. I was really disappointed and bummed the meal was the downside to my birthday celebration. Went to another restaurant the following day that was MUCH better!
We had a wonderful dinner and our server, Petey was great. Such a beautiful place.
No trip to HHI is complete without eating at The Oyster Factory. We've been coming here for years and it's always consistently good!
