Simply Southern Seafood Since 1983
The Original Oyster House restaurant first opened its doors in Gulf Shores in 1983. Our restaurant on the Causeway, overlooking Mobile Bay, opened in 1985. Since then we have proudly served the Gulf Coast the best seafood in a casual atmosphere with genuine southern hospitality.

Since 1983

The Original Oyster House is a “must-go-to” place for great fresh Gulf seafood, service and Southern hospitality and for its panoramic waterfront sunsets. A top spot for hand-shucked and fire-grilled oysters, the Original Oyster House is legendary for its homemade gumbo, cheesy grits with blackened shrimp as well as handcrafted desserts including its famous peanut butter chocolate chip pie. Patrons, employees and children are welcomed as family.

Known as an employer of choice, Original Oyster House has long-time, loyal employees who value family, integrity and great service. Consistently earning high marks in customer satisfaction, Original Oyster House’s mission is to exceed customers’ expectations and to give back to the community. Both locations offer spectacular waterfront views, private party rooms and have been celebrated as the area’s finest family restaurants for more than 30 years.
