The Oyster House burned down months ago, is currently being rebuilt. Appears to be a summer reopening - hopefully. This was a landmark and is truly missed! The food was so-o-o good!

This was a great place for a sandwich and a view of the pleasure boats but it's all ashes now. I hope someone takes advantage of a great location with plenty of parking to rebuild. I remember when this was THE place to take a date while out for a sail or just putzing around on the bay.

The Oyster House burned down last year. They have just started rebuilding it, do not know when it will be in operation again.

This review is moot at this point as the restaurant has burned down. IF they reopen I hope they have better food, better service, and much better management. Imagine have a nice quiet dinner on a Sunday evening while a staff member ran the carpet sweeper beside your table for 4 minutes! Then, try getting the check when all staff... More

It's burned to the ground now, though I understand they tend to re-open eventually. It's one of those waterside restaurants that gets to skate on its location. The owners' previous experience with restaurants was managing a Dairy Queen. The cartoony decor and ubiquitous televisions are testament to a design sensibility that I find off-putting at best. The food is just... More
