Very noisy.
Air conditioning blasted my seat while every other position at table did not. Way too cold in my position. Booth opposite oyster menu. With menu behind you, righthand booth, far seat. I miss the corncake griddele w fried oysters and syrup.

Wonderful brunch. Best fried shrimp I have ever had, ever. My partner got oysters done three ways and he was in heaven. This was my first visit to St Roch. Love this place!

We came here to begin the weekend celebration of my husband’s birthday. What a fabulous experience! Our waitress, Matilda, was highly attentive and gave us excellent suggestions. We started with a cocktail called Evangeline—refreshing and softly sweet. Then we ordered the roasted oysters and crawfish hush puppies. Both appetizers were delicious and just enough.

For entrees we had the steak frites and BBQ shrimp. The steak, fries and shrimp were equally delicious, but it was the sauces that stole the show! The garlic aoili for the fries, the chimichurri on the steak and whatever that magical creole roux was in the BBQ shrimp was phenomenal!! We were beyond satisfied. As if that wasn’t enough they complimented us a slice of German chocolate cake for his birthday. Perfectly moist and delicious!

Without question we will be back!

I would recommend St. Roch to friends with the following understanding...the beignets are a must and I am not truly a bread lover. The bbq & pimento cheese roasted oysters were excellent! And I only ate fried oysters. The one negative is that they do not sell regular coke or other soda drinks, diet or likewise. My husband does not drink alcohol and had to settle for just water. Not a big problem, but just a need to know before you go. I drink water every time.

We had an excellent time at St. Roch. Food and service were great. I did not realize I liked oysters until I tried them here. Both on the half shell, baked with flavored compound butters and fried. Also the fried saltines were out of this world. Highly recommend!

One of my newest go-to favorites in downtown Raleigh. I love that there's a great selection of NC oysters, love the $1 oyster specials, and the drinks are terrific. My husband doesn't eat shellfish, but the fish dishes are terrific.

As ever, great meal with friends . Opened with huge, ice cold oysters and cocktails. From there ate mostly from the small plates and vegetables. Tried to decline, but the table prevailed ( and they were right); finished with both the desert offerings. Will go there again and again.

Service was slow. Oysters were good, shrimp was good, crab legs were tiny and very little taste, fish was very bad and bar offering was limited. I will not go there again.

St. Roch is amazing! Everything from the cocktails, oysters and entrees. I was disappointed that the German Chocolate Cake wasn’t on the menu (seasonal dessert) but the cream cheese cake didn’t disappoint. What was disappointing was Open Table sucks and sent our reservation over to St. Roch as 2 when the confirmation was for 4 people. We were able to get in but it took a canceled reservation. And a reservation is a must unless you want to sit at the bar.

The quality of the food was good but the size of the oysters served in the barbecued oysters were very small and not a good value for the price.

Oysters were great, PoBoy sandwich just ok, had better. Service was great, just was too expensive for what we got. Paying $3 each for oysters that come from down the road is ridiculous. Don't think we will go back but if you have the $$ and like oysters then I would recommend.
