The Oyster house continues to serve good food with great service and nice folks. The portions are large and delicious. Our server was great, very nice and prompt with all our orders. Glad the restaurant is once again part of our wonderful waterfront views and downtown area. Try them they are open once again. They're the best!

On the deck of the Oyster House - beautiful crisp, sunny Pacific Northwest September weather with boats in the marina rocking gently in the water. Excellent service by staff. Fresh halibut used in fish and chips (check on this - halibut, as with most fisheries has it's own season) and delicious pan fried oysters that are just right and not... More

Just a couple weeks ago my daughter and I had a delicious dinner at the Olympia Oyster House. Yes it had been closed for sometime due to a fire, but now it is OPEN and just beautiful. The inside looks very much like the originial setting and sitting out on the deck under the umbrella tables was amazing. Our server... More

The reviews on this restaurant are all over the place. My sister and I were traveling through, craving some fresh PNW seafood. We each got a salmon dish - the blackened alaskan salmon. It was absolutely delicious. The steamed veggies were perfect, the salad with house vinegarette was also delightful. We felt healthy, happy, and full after we ate the... More

My friend from Germany and I shared The Feast! The food was OK. What was fun was the huge variety and sharing. We didn't want to wait so sat in the bar, but then the bar stool didn't work for my friend and we got moved to a booth. That was TERRIFIC. We were very happy with that. And we... More

I was so sad when the best seafood restaurant in Olympia burned to the ground last year. Now I am thrilled to see that they are making some of the final finishes before reopening in downtown Olympia . . I can hardly wait. I'll have a party with some of my best friends when they do. Try them when they... More

Our waiter was extremely rude, and it took over an hour just to get our drinks, let alone our food! We were never asked if we would like another beverage or anything else, and when we asked for the roll that was supposed to come with our salad, the waiter acted like we were asking for the world, and I...
