I had oysters from Oak Hill about 20 years ago. They were the briniest, freshest oysters I've ever had. Went to Goodrich this weekend with friends (a little drive from Melbourne). They got fish 'n' chips, the famous smoked fish dip, and fried green tomatoes. All excellent. Oysters? Well, I saw a teenager take a bunch out to the cleaning station, bang them apart, and start shucking. The young man had no clue about shucking oysters. Oak Hill oysters have a thin shell. This guy opened them from the far edge instead of the hinge. He broke most of the shells. He poured out the liquor. That is the worst sin any shucker can commit. By the time they got to me, they were dry. What was the worst offense? They were served with melted butter. RAW OYSTERS WITH MELTED BUTTER? Oh, and he forgot to cut the aductor muscle, so I had to do it myself with a a dull knife. What a waste of a spectacular oyster. Next time, I will ask for a dozen UNSHUCKED oysters, shuck them myself, and slurp down the really wonderful oysters in their liquor. Service? It was challenging for the staff. We wanted to sit outside and were told it was full, that five parties had just sat down, and we'd have to wait an hour. We pointed out the five empty tables. By the time we walked to the porch, they gave us a choice of three tables. Waited 10 minutes for drinks. Another 15 just to get the dinner order. 'K it was Friday evening at 6 pm, but the restaurant was only half full . Dinner and one drink took from 6pm to 8pm. A party of eight was seated 10 minutes after our party of four, and they got waited on first. But hey... It's Oak Hill. Go there and look at the staff. You'll understand
excellent broiled and fried shrimp, baked beans and real sweet potato fries. sit out on the deck and enjoy the scenery.
We will be going back to Goodrich's whenever we visit in the area. Amazing food, out of the way location, quiet and homey. We were there in the evening but would have loved to gone for lunch to sit on the deck overlooking the water. Good service, Friendly staff, good food with large portions.
