Fodor's Review

One of the town's oldest fish houses, Oyster House serves all the local staples—shrimp, gator tail, frogs' legs, oysters, stone crab, and grouper—in a lodgelike setting with mounted wild game on walls and rafters. Deep-frying remains an art in these parts, so if you're going to indulge, do it here where you can create your own fried platter for under $30. Try to dine at sunset for golden rays with your watery view. Outside, the 75-foot observation tower named for the late pioneer Ernest Hamilton affords a terrific overview of the Ten Thousand Islands.
