    Went for a light Sunday night meal with drinks. The pecan old fashion was excellent and everyone at the table had two because they were so good. Had the steak bites for a starter and also very tasty. Shared the fried seafood basket and one person had the shrimp and grits. All entrees were very good. Was a very enjoyable evening.

    After years of being a customer of the Drunken Oyster, I’m calling it quits. This restaurant has become far too inconsistent for the price. I will continue to take my business to the Bar 3 instead, which is where their best chef moved to. I was served raw chicken tonight in my dish. This is a HUGE mistake for a kitchen like this to make. If I was at Chilis, sure, I’d be less surprised. But this was my last straw. I was also not comped for this on my bill. I feel like that should have happened. By this time I was ready to leave. Besides the raw chicken, the sauce on both of my dishes (the raw and the remake) were broken and clumped. I also had to wait around 20 minutes for my dish to be remade. Unacceptable. My waitresses were very kind. That was the best part of the experience. The manager very clearly wasn’t concerned about any of the situation. After 6+ years of brunches and dinners, I can confidently say that the quality has significantly dropped. I won’t be back.

    Seating was an issue; but once resolved service wasn't the best. Ordered the Steak and mussels, which came with Sweet Potatoes mash, and rice. Friday night which I am imagining is one of their busiest nights; but they ran out of Sweet potatoes; but it seems to be a side for most of their dishes. Server started off nice enough; but service was extremely slow; and I believe she forgot about us once or twice; as we had to constantly flag her down. When food did arrive (she also stated it was a long time in preparation) the mussels were cold, the rice was cold and hard. She apologized, brought the food back to the Kitchen; and approximately 10 minutes later, food came back; and the rice was extremely watery and bland (you could see the water on the plate) and mussels were over cooked. Rather than have the plate go back a second time; I just declined and enjoyed the band and watch my wife eat. Server became a little aggressive; manager or supervisor never came over to explain or apologize for the meal - which is disappointing

    Love the food! Love the menu, good staff, great cocktails from the bar. The live music is VERY VERY loud for a space with all hard surfaces at the ceilings, wall, and concrete floor. My biggest issue - the issue that would make The Drunken Oyster ONE OF THE BEST in town if they fixed this - are the CHAIRS. Quite literally, I’d think someone crafted them from 55-gallon drums. Their very uncomfortable and really do not suit the ambiance of such a great restaurant. It would greatly help to at least start varying the seating with other options, please!

    We went to Drunken Oyster because our fav band, Velvet Funk, was playing. We didn't realize it was Fat Tuesday. We were lucky to get in! The food and drinks were great and we, of course, enjoyed the band. Our server was very attentive and did a great job.

    We had reservations and were seated at 7pm. No one came to acknowledge us for approximately 6 minutes or so. The food we had was suppose to be Cajun and there was zero spice. I’ve been here several times, but was disappointed this time around. 😕

    The food, drinks and service were great. Our appetizers and food arrived at the table in a timely manner. We dined early in the evening (5 pm) and the restaurant was not too crowded or too loud. We were able to carry on conversations at our table without having to shout. The only reason I give 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the chairs they use for the tables. They are a medal chair and are not all that comfortable to sit in. We didn’t sit in a booth or at the bar so they might be fine. The chairs were not intolerable but I would not want to sit in them for a long period of time. They might not bother everyone since of the 4 of us only 2 said something about the chairs. We will eat here again.

    Loved this place and glad to see food in Amarillo improving. That said, they need to work out a few things. Cocktail orders took a long time. There was a bad bottle of Sauvignon Blanc and they did not offer to replace the glass. The red wine was ordered well before the entree but did not arrive until after the entree. And the busser brought out the entree and announced it incorrectly so we said "no not hours" and it took five minutes for the server to come back and asked why we "rejected our entree".

    I went to Drunken Oyster to celebrate my birthday. When I made the reservation, it asked the occasion and I selected birthday. I didn’t get a birthday dessert. For the price point, it should be given, especially when an occasion is selected.l beforehand. I saw in the online reviews, a customer showed a picture of them reviving a dessert with a sparkler. The food was really good, a little spicy, but good. I would go back

    If you want Cajun food it would be a higher rating. I did not expect the Cajun on almost everything. The music was (Andy Williams) a little loud for an anniversary meal for my wife and I.

    It’s been awhile since we have eaten here but happy we came back. We had a reservation so no problem with being seated. It was very busy. Atmosphere is mostly New Orleans French Quarter. Live music was playing and mostly old songs which we like. Our waiter was friendly and helpful. I ordered the Simpleton of Eggs Bacon and Potatoes. My spouse had the Egg Benedict. Meals were prepared as requested portions were decent size. Food was tasty. There is a nice outside dining area when weather permits. Parking is free and in lot in front. Only problem is the coffee is weak and being busy it was a little noisy.
