We have dined here several times, sit at the bar because the bar tenders are very good at what they do and the oysters are to die for. They carry several types and the raw clams are just as yummy. Any of the seafood dishes ( I loved the Shrimp ) are always fresh and delicious and so is the... More

My friend and I were told about this restaurant for their seafood. We both were tired and looking to relax with a drink and great food. My friend ordered the mahi mahi dish, she loved it. I asked the server what was her favorite and she mentioned their burger. I decided to try it over the fish and chips. Well... More

We walked around and looked at different restaurants and menu's before we decided to have lunch at City Oyster. It was a good choice! We were able to sit outside (in the shade!) and enjoy the views of the Delray Beach. Our server was very attentive and polite. We each had a glass of wine and I ordered a Quinoa... More

We had an early New Year's Eve reservation and were pleasantly surprised to see a full restaurant even at 6:00. Lots of couples, groups of friends, and a few families. Constant turnover for several hours, so a very active, happy buzz. Outdoor seating on Atlantic Ave is a big plus. A good draft beer selection and nice wines priced reasonably.... More

We had dinner at City Oyster a few days after Christmas and the place was really electric! It was jam packed, food was great, and we couldn't hear ourselves think! Not from music, but from all the diners screaming so they could be heard. We will never go back for dinner because of the noise volume. Lunch is quieter.
