Beach casual dinner. Service was very good. The food in general was also good. The house raw oyster were disappointing. They offered “premium” oysters and unfortunately cannot speak about them, but the house oysters were a little on the small and dry side. Steak portion was small, however, the fish portion was generous. The service was very good and would definitely visit again.

Had the scallops in lemongrass sauce. Excellent meal. The five others at the table seemed to enjoy their meals. Somewhat expensive.

On a scale of 1-10, our table would rate the food as a 6. We all had seafood, and while it seemed fresh, the flavor was bland.
So, we found this restaurant way over-priced for average food.

Oyster Rock continues to over-deliver! Our waiter, True, was outstanding and the food is consistently the best along the Southern NC coast! Can’t even think of a close second.
My Wife always has the diver scallops and the yellowfin tuna is my go-to. The filet and the pork chop are also amazing!
Keep Oyster Rock(in)!!!

Can't decide if it wants to be an oyster shack or a fine dining restaurant. Our aps and entrees were excellent. We both ordered scalloped potatoes as a side. One had been broiled to brown and one had not. One was hot and one was barely warm, on the same order. Quite loud, need some sound deadening material integrated in the decor. Overall we enjoyed the dinner and will be back.

Great meal. I thought the trout was superb. My friends said the grouper and oysters were top-notch. My wife thought the crab cakes were very good, but not as good as Maryland.
