Good, solid menu in a fantastic atmosphere!

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... read 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

The Oyster Bar was highly recommended and we were not disappointed (too much.) We started with a couple of (premium) Manhattans for $9 and then a couple of glasses of wine. We opted for the $2 upcharge salads. I had the Grouper Pasta ($25.95.) She had the special where one gets one half of an entrée (she ordered Filet) and... More

My wife and I have been easting frequently at the Oyster Bar for over 30 years and have yet to have a meal that was not exceptional. It may not be LA, NY, Chicago or other "big name" city/restaurant but for a great meal, perfect service, value and experience The Oyster Bar has to be one of our all time... More

The Oyster Bar is small - thus reservations should be made for dinner - but the place is quirky cute - and best of all the food is superb. They have great specials for lunch daily. It is a fun place to go - with the added joy of great food.

The Oyster Bar has been knocking out great food for decades. The front room is intimate, if a little tight at times, but that's part of its charm. Great seafood, from simple to highly creative preparations. Servers are knowledgable and talented. And the friendly proprietor, Steve Gard, is likely to stop by your table to check on everything. I've probably... More
