Always a Great Experence

We've been going to the Oyster Bar since the late 90's and always have had a great experience. Our last visit was no exception. The atmosphere is so elegant yet cozy and casual with all the charm a late 1800's building should have. For openers I had the Black & Blue Oysters and my wife had Fried... read more

I am absolutely in love with the Oyster Bar. I always joke that if I'm ever put on death row I want their chocolate mousse, calamari, and a big glass of wine. I've read some of the negative reviews (just to see if there even WERE any)- I worked in the food industry for a while (first job at 16... More

We've were told to visit the Oyster Bar for years tho every time we stopped they were closed or packed full. We finally found them open and not too busy. We enjoyed everything and can't wait to go back. The cute red-head gal who served us was amazing and very friendly.

My wife and I made a reservation to eat here on a Saturday night, and the only seats that were available were at the bar. That was okay, because we figured that it would be a more interactive meal. I titled the review "Superb Experience" because it was more than just the meal. The food was up to its usual... More

In the summer of 1990 I was assigned to work from the Ft Wayne area and assigned to the Hilton downtown for my arrival. As my work allowed me some chance to roam the area for a radius of 100 miles I had the chance to meet lots of people and eat lots of different places and communities. Most anywhere... More

Went there on a spur of the moment on a Friday night, seated us immediately, the service was great, shrimp cocktail appetizer was awesome, bread was incredible, both our entrees were very good, my wife did a 1/2 & 1/2 entree and she was glad she did, scallops and golden bass both were superb. It's a fun little spoy.

Yes, it's small, yes, it's expensive, but it's a great choice! Kudos to them for letting us eat quite late (we were returning from a trip to Detroit) and the place was about to close and they managed to serve us very well. The drinks were great, the atmosphere is very interesting, highly recommended.

Oh yes. The seafood au gratin is a spectacular treat. Lots of seafood -- they don't skimp on the ingredients. Good steaks too. Very small and intimate. Please like if you find this review helpful.

The Oyster Bar is conveniently located near the downtown area and is a short walk from the Hillton Hotel that I frequently stay at. The fresh seafood selections are always excellent, and I especially like the fact that they will let you select two "half orders" of almost all their entrees. Even having the opportunity to try two totally different... More
