We had just finished a week long Disney Cruise in Alaska, and we were driving back to Seattle for our flight home. We had just eaten so much wonderful (and plentiful!) food over the week, my boys & I agreed we weren't eating for the next week...until we stopped into The Oyster Bar. It is fairly unassuming from the outside,... More

We had heard about the Oyster Bar for years, but never went there because we were intimidated by the prices and because I'm not overly fond of seafood. Last week had house guests who wanted to treat us to "something special," so we had dinner at the Oyster Bar. What a treat! It was late afternoon on what had been... More

I enjoy the view as much as the service and their food quality. We usually go there for special occasions from birthdays, anniversaries, or Christmas time. Worth the drive on the winding old hwy 99.

We have passed by a number of times and were so glad we stopped in. My husband really enjoyed his fried oysters and my scallops and prawns were really good. We enjoyed dessert too, my key lime pie was really good and my husband enjoyed his trifle. The view of the oyster beds was very interesting too.

We went to the Oyster Bar to celebrate a special birthday, and were delighted with our choice. Our appetizer were the scallops, the soup was halibut chowder, and the main attraction was Copper River salmon. Each course was served with a smile, and our questions were answered by John - about the food, the history of the restaurant, and the... More

Located a mile from Taylor Shellfish Farms this restaurant featured at least six varieties of fresh oysters. Wonderful appetizer when we sampled two local types. Service was very good in this dressy seafood specialty restaurant, a wide variety of courses on the menu at lunch and all were attractively prepared and served. We had a really good artichoke and nettle... More

Two years ago, I reviewed the restaurant and expressed a desire to return: we were not disappointed. We knew the view of Samish Bay was spectacular. But we were also able to enjoy six different varieties of extraordinarily delicious local oysters. Yes, the service was good and the wine selections were interesting. But you should come here for the oysters... More

My wife and I have been here many times since our first visit in 2005 and have always been impressed with their outstanding food and service. Please leave your children home and don't waste your time if you're in a hurry. Just make a reservation, relax and enjoy.

I heard about this place and decided to take my family. The view is stunning, we came for lunch and we watched the tide go out. We ordered raw oysters for the table as an appetizer. Probably the best oysters I have ever had. Mom ordered crab cakes, sister in law fish and chips, and my brother ordered the rockfish... More

What a great view!! We'd heard of The Oyster Bar, but had never gone there. The seating arrangement was such that everyone had a great view of the water (the restaurant sits several hundred feet above the water on the edge of an almost cliff). The wait staff was a match of any fine city restaurant and unexpected at a... More
