Lovely Little Restaurant, loss of one star may be my fault... or not

First, this is a really really nice little neighborhood restaurant with darned good food. The service is friendly, excellent and very prompt. The staff is helpful with suggestions. My husband asked for a recommendation from their extensive beer selection and the beer that was recommended (can't... read more

Any restaurant that let's you walk through the kitchen is obviously focused on quality. Not expecting to find great seafood in the middle of Indiana, we were pleasantly shocked at the outstanding selection as well as quality. I had swordfish prepared black and blue and the bienville oysters. Both were phenomenal. We also tried the blackened shrimp and calamari appetizers... More

Very good sea food and a friendly atmosphere. Ask for the back room for quieter, personal area vs. the more rowdy front room. A little expensive - not for daily dining, but an absolute must for any occasion... especially anniversaries!!!

An annual event. Not disappointed. The food is always delicious. Seems like a special place to celebrate the anniversary!

On a recent night I really wanted a steak, but, after a very long day, didn't want to leave the south side of Fort Wayne. We decided to take a chance at the Oyster Bar, which we have been to a few times before, but always for lunch, and always for seafood. It was a good decision. Walking in there... More

When my husband and I want to celebrate or do something special, this is our favorite place to head to. It's just a tiny spot, but we love it. The food is wonderful, the staff is always very classy, and it's a nice treat. We could make an entire meal out of the calamari appetizer. There haven't been any meals... More

Our food was top-notch, served by the friendly wait-staff and piping hot. Dishes were creative and portions were generous. The only rub is that the place is very small and, therefore, people are constantly bumping you as they walk by. In particular, our reservation landed us at the two-top table right at the front corner of the bar. Because of... More

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 them a try, you... 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.
