All was great. Our waiter Chris did an outstanding job. Also, My son dropped his wallet and didn’t know it. The restaurant called me to let me know. It was late at night and didn’t hear the call but got the voice message the next day. Went to retrieve it. Not a thing was missing. Great folks. We’ll be back. Thanks so much! Richard Davis

The food and service here is really good, although the chargrilled oysters weren’t quite as flavorful as the many others I have eaten over many years at other restaurants. BBQ shrimp and fried catfish were excellent!

The raw oysters were delicious! We also had the scallops and grilled Redfish which were equally as enjoyable. The frozen Pomegranate Mojito is a must!

Nathan did a fantastic job, we were very impressed with all the dishes and enjoyed an early dinner while spending time as a family.

Oysters were the highlight but all other items surely impressed. We did soup to nuts as they say.

Superior Seafood is the perfect lunch spot. Raw oysters, frozen French 75’s , wonderful staff and a lovely atmosphere are just a few of the things that keep us coming back for more!

I came her for the fried green tomatoes but they no longer sell it. This place is very busy and although it looks like it is set up for social distancing it is still a lot of movement between customers and employees. I have come here several times before and was very pleased with the food and service. This past time just the service. Between the three of us, no one enjoyed their food. I'll come back for drinks but probably not to eat.

We had just gotten prior to having dinner here, and they rolled out the red carpet for us. We had one of the best tables in the house, a fantastic server in Killian, and a bottle of champagne chilled at our table. The oysters were huge and perfect, and the bbq shrimp (the reason I go there) was as always delicious and the best in the city! We always go back!!

Jay and Phu at the oyster bar are pros!
Sarah on the bar is kind and efficient. John Michael and Thomas run a tight ship. Everything is served timely and the food is very good. I’m a once a week patron and very happy to see a restaurant operate as seamlessly as this one!

Very, very good. In fact, most of the food was excellent. The chargrilled oysters are fantastic. Ditto for the pecan-crusted drum. Given the quality of the food, the prices are relatively reasonable.

This place is fantastic. The chargrilled oysters were probably the best oysters I've had in my life. Everything else, including service, was excellent.
