the best oyster bar ever. – the staff is exceptional the food is superb and the atmosphere is an experience. you really feel like family when you're dining here. I've only been twice so far and i can really see it becoming a monthly stop. so good, a decent value and an icon in the orlando area. there's a reason they've been here over 50 years folks!
best oysters in town – We had the best time of our life. As everyone knows, the holiday season is a busy time for orlando. However, lee and ricks oyster bar, is not your ordinary seafood place, as you will find out. We had the pleasure of meeting J'nay, a young lady who we thought was the best server we have seen during our visit to orlando. We enjoyed our first "bucket" of oysters on the house, and that just made us crave for 2 more! We will recommend this off the wall place to all of our realtives who visit orlando...great place! Must go!
Don't Come for the other seafood – Sorry to say, this is NOT the place to come for cooked fresh Florida seafood. I had read other warnings about this before we went but wasn't quite prepared for as bad as it was. I'd say if you are familiar with the fish, shrimp, clam strips that come in packages in the frozen section of the supermarket you drop into a frying pan to finish frying for a "quickee" you know what I mean. We live in Florida, not Maine and if I wanted Gorton's I'd go to Publix and buy Gorton's or equivalent.
if your aim to to sit at a concrete bar, drink beer, and eat fresh shucked or steamed Florida oysters this is an okay place to do that. I thought their oysters were tasty but tiny and more care should have been shown in putting out an honest dozen of same sized ones. A couple of mine would have qualified as one put together.
I hate to give a poor rating to anyone, but, listen, as far as a seafood platter ? once you've been spoiled at Packwood's fish camp over on the coast, as well as J.B.'s fish camp and been mulitple times to Cedar Key, you aren't going to be wanting to opt for the fried platter here. There is no excuse for putting out this kind of frozen processed factory seafood in Florida
Best Oysters in Orlando – I live in NY and FL, I have been going to Lee & Rick's for ten years now and the Oysters have always been fantastic. They have cooked foods like crab and shrimp for the faint of heart, but the Oysters are the star. There are many types of Oysters in the world and I have had unbelievable meals around the world. When in Orlando Lee & Ricks is a must do if you love food as the locals eat it.
Not my favorite. – Quite a well known place for oysters. Been around for ever it seems. I wasn't over impressed to be honest. The oysters were kinda average and the staff were not really that friendly. I preferred the Thirsty Gator on Goldenrod Winter Park.
best resturant for oyster eaters – so unbelievably awesomely good.
Whether you "eat 'em raw" or prefer them steamed, this local dive is a rare pearl in Orlando. – In Short
Walk the plank into this restaurant that looks more like a shipwreck than a ship. But here's, it's not about the ambiance. It's about the oysters. Lee & Rick's, a family owned operation, has been shucking buckets of Apalachiola's finest eastern oysters for more than half a century. Grab a stool and sit at the cement bar where you can see the eatery's history in the thick layers of chipped paint. The menu is extremely limited--crab cakes, fried shrimp and little more--but the succulent mollusks are a must. Servers, who can crack them open faster than you can eat them, are friendly and remember faces.
