    We had a large party and they were very accommodating. Half of the party was 30 minutes late to the reservation time and they were very patient. Mother’s Day brunch was great.

    Great food, just a little unorganized for the crowd they had. Need better system for having tables held for reservations made in advance. We ended up at a two-top with three people. Food made up for it and music was great!

    We sat outside due to the extremely nice weather. It was very quiet and peaceful on their porch. The food and mixed drinks were absolutely delicious. From their appetizer to the dessert. Highly recommend this place.

    We typically love DO, but service was scarce and the oysters were so small. I couldn’t believe that they actually served some of the ones that they did, smaller than a nickel. Our actual entrees took an hour to come out without much of an explanation and no offers to make it right. The entertainment was the only thing that was good, even that was so loud we couldn’t have table conversation- tables away from the stage. Very disappointed. Will not be back.

    Excellent service!! We were seated right away and told about the specials. We couldn’t decide on which oysters we wanted to start with and the waitress was very helpful. I had the risotto with scallops which was on special and my wife had the lobster roll. Our drinks we phenomenal and so was the food!

    Nice date night evening. Service was good. Server tried hard. The dirty martini was less than dirty and wasn’t served with olives. Fresh Oysters were very good as was the scallops and risotto and apple crisp. Unfortunately the worst part of the evening was the unbearably hard and uncomfortable metal chairs. They proved to be a distraction to all of the good that was offered.

    Went for a light Sunday night meal with drinks. The pecan old fashion was excellent and everyone at the table had two because they were so good. Had the steak bites for a starter and also very tasty. Shared the fried seafood basket and one person had the shrimp and grits. All entrees were very good. Was a very enjoyable evening.

    After years of being a customer of the Drunken Oyster, I’m calling it quits. This restaurant has become far too inconsistent for the price. I will continue to take my business to the Bar 3 instead, which is where their best chef moved to. I was served raw chicken tonight in my dish. This is a HUGE mistake for a kitchen like this to make. If I was at Chilis, sure, I’d be less surprised. But this was my last straw. I was also not comped for this on my bill. I feel like that should have happened. By this time I was ready to leave. Besides the raw chicken, the sauce on both of my dishes (the raw and the remake) were broken and clumped. I also had to wait around 20 minutes for my dish to be remade. Unacceptable. My waitresses were very kind. That was the best part of the experience. The manager very clearly wasn’t concerned about any of the situation. After 6+ years of brunches and dinners, I can confidently say that the quality has significantly dropped. I won’t be back.

    Seating was an issue; but once resolved service wasn't the best. Ordered the Steak and mussels, which came with Sweet Potatoes mash, and rice. Friday night which I am imagining is one of their busiest nights; but they ran out of Sweet potatoes; but it seems to be a side for most of their dishes. Server started off nice enough; but service was extremely slow; and I believe she forgot about us once or twice; as we had to constantly flag her down. When food did arrive (she also stated it was a long time in preparation) the mussels were cold, the rice was cold and hard. She apologized, brought the food back to the Kitchen; and approximately 10 minutes later, food came back; and the rice was extremely watery and bland (you could see the water on the plate) and mussels were over cooked. Rather than have the plate go back a second time; I just declined and enjoyed the band and watch my wife eat. Server became a little aggressive; manager or supervisor never came over to explain or apologize for the meal - which is disappointing

    Love the food! Love the menu, good staff, great cocktails from the bar. The live music is VERY VERY loud for a space with all hard surfaces at the ceilings, wall, and concrete floor. My biggest issue - the issue that would make The Drunken Oyster ONE OF THE BEST in town if they fixed this - are the CHAIRS. Quite literally, I’d think someone crafted them from 55-gallon drums. Their very uncomfortable and really do not suit the ambiance of such a great restaurant. It would greatly help to at least start varying the seating with other options, please!

    We went to Drunken Oyster because our fav band, Velvet Funk, was playing. We didn't realize it was Fat Tuesday. We were lucky to get in! The food and drinks were great and we, of course, enjoyed the band. Our server was very attentive and did a great job.
