Foursquare Tips

  • The seafood here is so fresh that you can't choose just one thing - make a platter with a little bit of everything, from succulent shrimp to fried oysters. As seen on Man v Food Nation.
  • Clam chowder isn't something that's usually associated with the south, but OOH's chowder is the best I've ever had! So velvety smooth and full of clams!
  • Crabs claws and cheese grits are a MUST! The mahi down on the bayou is wonderful. The fried crawfish topping makes this dish. And mikes grilled shrimp is always good.
  • For over 30 years, this family-friendly restaurant on raised pillars over Mobile Bay has served seafood with a southern accent. Gulf oysters arrive on the half shell, either raw or chargrilled.
  • Cheese Grits are a must!
  • On busy nights they have a guy making balloon animals for the kiddies. He's the best! Oh, and the food is ok too. Can't go wrong with fried shrimp.
  • Great raw oysters, fried green tomatoes!! Alligator bites & crawfish poboy!! Excellent bloody Mary's
  • I always enjoy my food best in the bar area at one of the high top tables!!! And as far as food goes, I always prefer the grilled sutchi with cheese grits and turnip greens! So delicious.
