Five Point Public House Oyster Bar Restaurant Review:

Chef/owner George Reis closed 26, the previous establishment to inhabit this space, to make way for his gastropub, which is more rustic. With bare brick walls, reclaimed wood tables and windowed doors hung as dividers, it retains a city vibe, and is a good place for drinks and pub snacks as well as a full meal. Starring in a separate shuckers bar, fresh oysters from the Southeastern and Gulf coasts are served on ice in muffin tins with thin house-made crackers. Oysters also come baked or fried, even in an Oyster Rock n’ Roll, a sushi version with fried oyster, bacon, spinach, cream cheese, asparagus, jalapeño and cilantro samba aïoli. Other options range from a steak salad with grilled romaine heart and ginger-lemon dressing to wood-fire roasted stuffed quail with Conecuh sausage spoon bread. Fried pig tails with buffalo sauce and alligator tail tacos hit exotic notes. On the sweet side, try a cranberry apple crumble with cinnamon ice cream. A weekday happy hour runs from 4 p.m.-6:30 p.m., with special prices on a menu of pub snacks (think fried cheese curds) and drinks. The tap table seats ten, and offers a choice of two out of 32 beers to run to the table. There are also eight keg wines.
