I've been to the Oysterhouse on many occasions I have always liked the food until yesterday !!! I ordered the bacon wrapped scallops they were horrible !!! At first the bacon was raw but I tried to eat them but couldn't I ate my potatoes but they were COLD and my slaw was just ok nouthing great the hush puppies were also blah.... The only thing I enjoyed was the fried pickles I decided not to eat my scallops and cook them when I got home The waitress was very nice so I didn't want to complain so I didn't but now I wish I had Either the scallops were OLD or they were not real Scallops they had NO Flavor nouthing really they tasted like eating styrofoam!!! This is even after I Recooked them at home and also seasoned them myself I suspect they were not fresh caught and may have been fake like made from chopped fish or something They were the worse scallops I ever ate I hate to be so negative but I can't believe how much this meal cost and NO one liked their meals!!! I hope they get back on track and buy more quality seafood and get good chefs to cook and CARE about the quality of food Sorry for such a negative review I hate to do this

Baked oysters and fried oysters are the only 2 options on the otherwise extensive menu.
Our waiter was friendly and helpful.
The kitchen accommodated our dietary needs
Decor is the the most fun.
