Nice Restaurant for a Special Date

Lovely restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. I had the porterhouse steak and it was delicious! The ambience was more formal than usual for us, but not stuffy or overbearing. The staff was professional and clearly rehearsed their specials for the day, which was a list long. If you're... read more

The staff was professional and clearly rehearsed their specials for the day, which was a list long. If you're looking for a nice evening out, you will do just fine here.

We had an outstanding dinner here. I had the grouper which was better than any I have ever had even in Florida. My husband had the steak and still talks about how perfect it was cooked. Although it was crowded on a Saturday evening, our waiter never made us feel rushed and we never had trouble talking to each other... More

We visit Oyster Bay several times during the Season. Not just for oysters, they have unusual Fare at the bar such as fried tomatoes and crabmeat. Also shrimp and Andouille sausage and other Delights!

The restaurant is located a couple of blocks from the Washington Street Mall. Not to much parking in the back and I think most of it was taken up by the people in the bar. It was not to busy when we arrived around 5:30 on a Friday night. I was impressed by the waitress telling us the price of... More

I was a bit disappointed with this last visit. Although the service was impeccable, the food left a lot to be desired. My first steak was over cooked, and when replaced, my porterhouse was tough and chewy. Can't see myself returning anytime soon.

My boyfriend and I ate here on Fri 10/30/15. Fish du Jour was swordfish with Crab and Bernaise and it was phenomenal. Everything on the plate melted in my mouth. He had Steak and Coco Shrimp - very good. Service was top notch and our server handled champagne service flawlessly. It was an emotional special occasion for us and we... More
