This is the best fried seafood restaurant in the world, but not a place to wear a tux!! A real Cracker Hole in the Wall Joint. The best service, real friendly. It is very small and sometimes the wait is almost an hour. But that is also OK because you can grab a beer and stand outside with your friends. There is nothing like this place. Gary is also the unofficial mayor of Lake Alfred. This place is packed day in and day out. The volume of oysters shucked here (over 200 dozen a night) ensure freshness. The fish really is fresh. The baby catfish fingerlings are to die for. The gator, unlike many places, is always good and not stringy. Fried lobster...I could go on and on. WARNING! This is not a health food store!!!!

Pros: Best fried seafood, best oysters in the world

Cons: small, long wait around 8 PM

I dont understand why anyone can rate this less than 5 star for what it is...a small, casual Cracker Seafood House with outstanding seafood. The only problem is it is so small, and it is so popular, that it is usually packed. But worth the wait. Grab a beer and hang out with locals up front. The best oysters from north Florida (an excellent oyster bar), freshest fish. Catfish fingerlings from south Florida. The best service, like down home.

Pros: Simply the best oysters and fish on the planet

Cons: Sometimes hard to get in!

I went to Gary's after an absence of a couple of years to satisy a craving for raw oysters. I had forgotten just how great a place this was. The oysters were great, but what really made the night was the blackened grouper..it was the best I have had in a long time! Others in my party had scallops (loved them); and we all shared sweet-as-cake hush puppies and the biggest onions rings I have ever seen. I definitely will not let so much time pass before I return, especially since I only live 20 minutes away! Service was outstanding as well.

This is a great place to eat. It is very casual but the seafood is very fresh and the staff are awesome.
If you can, sit at the oyster bar and let Todd take care of you. He makes the best Margarittas.
The fried Lobster is really good and if you eat oysters, they are the best you will ever have.
You will not be sorry you stopped in at Gary's.

Gary's Oyster Bar is located just East of Lake Alfred on Route 17/92. They have the best Catfish in the state. They have Gator, Oysters, any type of fish you can think of, Turtle Soup, and the list goes on and on! The atmosphere is real down home Southern hospitality. The food is great and it is a great place to meet and have a few with your friends and family!

PROS: friendly atmosphere
