Fodor's Review

One of the town's oldest fish houses, Oyster House serves, along with the requisite oysters, all the local staples—shrimp, gator tail, frogs' legs, 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. Or if you catch it, Oyster House will cook it. Wash it all down with wine, beer, or cocktails. 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.
