The food was good but the hostess greeted us with her back to us and that set the tone for the whole evening. The waiter was polite but RUSHED. We asked for more bread and water while waiting for our meal; the waiter sent someone else to it. SHE WAS NOT HAPPY. When we received the check and were debating... More

We ate here on a Saturday night, expecting it to be crowded, but rather noisy also. Well we dined on the Fried Tomato and Crab app- which was extremely delicious. We also had the Panko Grouper which was awesome as was the Red Skin Potato salad. Now I wish I could say we enjoyed the Crab Cakes and Steak. Well... More

We came for dinner and decided to have a drink at the bar first. Our bartender Megan was friendly and helpful with the beer and wine lists and her food suggestions. We had crab soup, a shrimp & andouille app, and raw oysters, all great, followed by a Panko crusted grouper. The fish preparation was very perfect as was the... More

The Oyster Bay Restaurant came highly recommended. We were anxious to dine here on our 1st night BUT we were very disappointed - highly over rated. The decor was lovely, very nautical, our waitress did not have a smile on her face & it showed in her service. The portions were overly generous in size, which I don't appreciate &... More

Last week our family dined at this restaurant and then walked to a nearby play. We had not eaten here for about 12 years. Years ago, it was a great restaurant. No more. None of the party enjoyed their meal, except for the wine.

We enjoyed a lovely dinner at Oyster Bay Restaurant and Bar - My son had the surf and turf and he said the lobster was amazing - it was stuffed with crab meat and his steak was tender and cooked perfectly. The portions were very generous in size. I really enjoyed the salmon over shredded vegies which had little bits... More

We came early on a Friday evening. The place was empty so we had terrific service. Our food was excellent. Our kids had the steak and they ate every bite. The crab cakes were great as well.

The waitress was rude and the food was bland, was not a pleasant experience for $140.00 for 4 people. Felt like we were expected to order full meals for our 2 18 month olds.
