The food was excellent and the service was great but we found that it got quite noisy when a large group of golfers were seated too close to us. We thought they should have been seated in the room downstairs because they were so boisterous and other diners asked to be moved. Other than that we totally enjoy our meal.

We were on Spring Break and found the gem of a restaurant for our final day. Thomas our waiter was absolutely perfect allowing us order as we went so we could relax and enjoy the ambiance and views from our window seat. The food was delicious. Cannot recommend enough! Don’t skip dessert !

The bar dining during Happy Hour is very nice! It gets busy & crowded very quickly shortly after five pm! Oyster Factory’s bar dining menu is excellent & offers small plates or individual items that are very tasty & priced fairly! A wide variety of options of wine, beers & spirits compliment the Bar Dining experience! The Oyster Factory also offers an early dining menu along with their traditional dining menu! So, go early & enjoy an additional dining segment of this fine eatery!!

The restaurant was a wonderful place to eat and dine. The location was extremely great. I enjoyed everything but the gumbo. I’m from Louisiana and it was gumbo it was just soup with a tomato sauce taste. The oysters was Devine. Everything else was Devine. The waiter was courteous and extremely nice. If I had to rate this restaurant it would be 9 out of a 10. Again the only negative thing would be the gumbo.

Ordered the Shrimp and Grits. I was heavy on onions and bell pepper, and the sauce had no flavor. Was not a good meal. The fried fish was good. Noted that we were celebrating an 85th birthday in our party of six. Not a mention or acknowledgment of this, that was not cool. Not a place I would return to.

We’ve eaten here before and always enjoyed it. This time however, I ordered the Seafood Medley? And meh.
I don’t care for food that’s obviously been prepared ahead of time reheated with sauce on everything. Too much like assembly line food.

This is a great place to go for a meal - very efficient, great views of the marsh, and good service. But the best way to describe our dining experience is uneven. The broiled seafood plate was wonderful - great shrimp, fantastic scallops, good whitefish. But my wife's mahi mahi was pretty terrible. Very bland, and not at all fresh tasting. She hardly ate any of it.

This is not our first trip here, and probably won't be the last. But we will stick to things we know are caught locally in the future.

Beautiful views of the wetlands while you dine. Accomodations are casual, rustic and a tad crowded, but the noise level is more than manegeable while the service and food were both excellent. Great seafood selection and lava chocolate cake ended the meal perfectly.

We try to visit this establishment whenever we visit the island. We enjoy the baked oysters! Also recommend the sea bass, and swordfish. Service was very good. If you come in the evening, you will see a colorful sunset over the marsh. We will return.

The only complaint was the lettuce in the dinner salad was still very wet, diluting the salad dressing. The Wedge salad was phenomenal as well as the hush puppies - the best we've ever had. The tuna was a bit mushy however.
