Excellent waitress served us her name was Cassidy we have had her a few times while eating at oyster rock and she always makes it a great experience.
Amazing food and location overlooking the water.
Birthday dinner with friends. Wonderful outdoor space with intercostal view.
The scallops are the best I have had in a long time! Don't bother with the cauliflower side - it was pretty much tasteless. Oysters and the cherry stone clams were small, but good. Eating outside was fabulous!
the servers are your best resource. I would never in my life order the (scalloped?) potatoes - but they were utterly delicious. highly recommended
Service was unusually slow tonight ..
great addition to calabash restaurant scene. excellent quality! will be going back.
We had a 8pm reservation but got seated at 8:30. Food was excellent, service good bit a little slow
Love Oyster Rock but last night wasn’t a great experience. Had a reservation at 6:30 arrived and was immediately seated. At 6:43 had bar drinks and waters. It was after 7 when our order was taken for food. Received appetizer at 7:24 of bang bang shrimp it was 8pm when we received our dinner. Received dessert at 8:30pm and check at 9pm. Have times from photos taken. It seemed our waiter was spending lots of time on other tables but not ours. Not sure if he didn’t put our order in on time or what. Tables beside us turned over several times and received there food much faster. When asked him to check on our dinner since it was taking along time he said he had and that it was with the kitchen time frame. Our food was delicious but the service and time frame to receive food was off tonight. Have dined at Oyster Rock three times in the last month and many times since it opened. No manager stopped by the entire time we were there which was from 6:30 till 9pm. We brought last night our college kids to celebrate them heading back off to college. Had a reservation for tonight to bring neighbors but cancelled since last night was so off service wise.
Food and service was outstanding. Everything was fresh and delish!
We really enjoyed our view on the patio. We were pleased when the manager lowered the shade as the sun continue to set. Our waiter was very polite and helpful. We ordered a special appetizer for the evening named boom boom shrimp. We have had this at other restaurants and it seemed that the sauce was evenly coated on each shrimp and this appetizer did not have that. We did thoroughly enjoy our scallop dish and the crabcake dish. This was our second visit and in the future we will definitely go back.
Waiting for our reservation With a drink in hand was relaxing down at the oyster pit. We sat outside and had an unobstructed view on a gorgeous night of the waterway. The food (oysters, tuna, and grouper) was just as perfect as the view!
Love the food. Very noisy but you can’t have everything. Service is excellent.
Excellent food and service
Our waiter was excellent...he knew the menu and had recommendations...the detail of his recommendations was impressive...the watermelon salad was 5 star...I never mind paying for quality food and service...we will be returning.
One of the best meals I’ve had. Great portions. Amazing views. Great cocktails! I’ll be back!
Amazing fresh seafood and best charcaturie we’ve had in a long time!
We took our daughter before she returned to college for her fall semester. It’s her favorite restaurant. Our food is always good and the service is excellent. Our table was outside in the water front and we felt like all COVID precautions were being followed. Although pricey, we had a special experience.
Due to the pandemic I requested a table outside. I was pleased to see that all tables were approximately 6 feet apart. The food, service, and water view were fantastic. I highly recommend this restaurant.
Wonderful service, and the food was outstanding. The crab cakes have lump crab meat, which is something I look for at an oceanside restaurant. The scallops with risotto cake were absolute heaven. You can't make a bad choice on the appetizer menu- we ordered practically all of them and all were terrific. Boom boom shrimp was a table favorite.
Our experience at the Oyster Rock was wonderful. Fresh seafood, great atmosphere, seafood cooked perfectly, service couldn’t have been better. The restaurant was clean and the friendliness of the wait staff the best. Our reservation worked perfectly and was on time. Five stars for all ratings from our visit.
Amazing food and service. Nice outdoor patio. Everything was fantastic!
Our Anniversary dinner was great. The food was wonderful. The restaurant itself is very contemporary not old as many Calabash restaurants seem to be. I understand that the owners of Oyster Rock also own The Boundary House which has been our favorite restaurant. Now, we have two favorite restaurants.
Enjoyable birthday celebration for my wife. Everything from special watermelon salad to flounder, burger and crab cake done nicely. Fine service from Debbie.
We would recommend this restaurant to anyone in the Calabash area. Ashley was a phenomenal server!
Oyster Rock is always an excellent choice in Calabash. Great location, great view, great staff, and great food! We come often and I usually get the fresh seafood, but tonight I had the Cold smoked pork chop with collard greens and it was amazing! We ate on the porch and it was full, vibrant, and loud but that was fine as all were having a good time. Don’t miss a chance to experience Oyster Rock!
There was NO social distancing happening at this restaurant and masks only enforced by the restaurant employees. This seemed to be the place for larger groups/families to dine, so with the smaller space it made it seem a little more chaotic.
Service was excellent! The staff was hustling and super attentive throughout the entire meal.
We loved our experience! Great view, beautiful and shaded outside seating, and great service!
Excellent in every way. Food was delicious Service was perfect
Outstanding service !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There was confusion regarding the area to dine. I thought the outdoor dining was on their porch with fans. But we were seated outside the building in the sun with an umbrella that moved around with the wind. We asked if we could be seated on the porch and was told there was no room so we went to a table that was indoors.
We ordered a dozen oysters that were shameful. The cucumber martini was a little more than half full and not that good and dinner was just alright. But our server was a real pro....so the service was good... but the food isn’t much better than mediocre...
We went for our 18 year wedding anniversary. The restaurant itself is in a great location and the food is pretty good but it is pricey… My wife ordered the steamer pot which came out cold and had to be taken back and reheated. I ordered flounder and scallops, blackened, and they were delicious. The atmosphere was wonderful and the view was even better. I definitely recommend the restaurant, especially if you are going for a date night out with your significant other.
Awesome atmosphere for a date night. Our server, Debbie, was absolutely incredible! Great experience, will definitely be back!
Food was delicious & service was impeccable!
Food was excellent and service was outstanding. Definitely will be visiting there again soon. Highly recommended.
Absolutely delicious... the menu choices were fantastic and covered every taste. Definitely will be back... 💗💗
Food was delicious and the service was excellent. Food was a little pricey.
Loved the restaurant.
The service and food were fabulous. My only complaints were the flys and the heat from the side door opening all the time to serve outside diners. This was probably a contributor to the fly problem. Don't understand why the screening was not down
This was one of the best restaurants we’ve have enjoyed during our Sunset Beach vacations. The plates are beautiful with presentation and excellent flavors . I had the blackened Mahi-mahi with mango salsa and was blown away. Topped off with blueberry cobbler and the creamiest ice cream ever, just won me over.
We enjoyed a great dinner on Saturday (July 18th). We always try to visit during our stays. The outside seating was terrific, we felt very safe with social distancing practices in place. Fried shrimp and flounder were great as usual.
