The Oyster Bar has been around forever [I used to deliver News-papers to them as a youngster, 60 years ago]. It is in an old but safe neighborhood and as soon as you walk in you will get that legitimate old and elegant feeling. The only tiny negative is that their rest rooms are small. Give... read more

Oyster Bar is one of the very best restaurants in Fr Wayne. Have eaten there in many celebratory events & also for a nice meal out. We have never been disappointed. Oysters are wonderful, clam chowder, as well as a number of their appetizers. I have only ordered seafood. Salmon, aberjack, grouper, snapper, etc., have all been very good. Those... More

Although the restaurant itself is small and usually crowded, the food makes it worth it. I do find it unusual to walk thru the kitchen to get to the back dining room, but that certainly doesn't keep me away. This is my husband's "go-to" restaurant for a birthday or anniversary celebration! It never disappoints.

OB is such a special place! When you walk in you are immediately in the dining area and greeted by all! The place is small which makes it even more warm! The staff are friendly and patient. The food ... Oh the food ... Just fantastic! You gotta try ALL of oysters and do a split meal of any two... More

We randomly picked the Oyster Bar because we wanted seafood. Had no idea that we would stumble into one of the coolest restaurants we had ever visited or that we would enjoy one of our best meals ever. We began with a sampler of the "Black and Blue" oysters and the "Parmesan" oysters. The parmesan were great, but the black... More

I looked at the reviews while I was in Fort Wayne doing family research at the Allen County Library and decided to give it a try. I was So glad I did. I had the Grilled Salmon Oscar-with a crab cake on it and sauce. DELICIOUS. In the top ten best salmon dishes I have eaten. GREAT service.

You can't go wrong with a dinner at The Oyster Bar! The food is tasty -- love the chowder; the oyster selection is wonderful; amazing seafood au gratin -- and the atmosphere and service are outstanding. I'd recommend you sit outside or in the main dining room. The back room is very dark and doesn't have the ambience of the... More

Service was attentive and the food was good but nothing outstanding with many unique fish and seafood options. Historic ambiance but it's small size makes for tight quarters.

Great, old place to eat. Not a lot of room, unfortunately we didn't get the best of tables, right by the front door, but it was still very good and we still got to enjoy the atmosphere in the place. Service was great and very attentive. One recommendation is to get a reservation, as that is highly recommended. For our... More

Attention to preparation in every offering!! From the soups(real cream and freshest clams), salads(spring greens and spinach with real blue cheese chunks), crispy hot fresh baked bread to the stars of the menu their entrees which they allow you to halve the two you want for the price of one!! You won't find this in Europe, but the taste took... More
