I ate here along with five other coworkers for lunch. The service was slow for a lunch crowd that wasn't very busy. The waitress dropped two soft drinks on us and seemed distracted. She had to be reminded to replace them. Also no manager came over to apologize which was surprising for a restaurant of this caliber. The food was... More

Came here alone and sat at the bar. The bartender was not engaging, did not offer recommendations when asked, and it appeared that he wanted to be somewhere else. I ordered a club soda with a splash of cranberry. There was a ton of cranberry juice - not what I ordered. He did not reappear to get it corrected. I... More

in a landlocked state I normally do not eat at seafood places. However, based on a recommendation on the fact that they fly seafood in daily, I gave it a try. Was not disappointed either. Had a great meal of shrimp and scallops. Yum....really wanted some oysters but just didn't have the room. We were lucky as we had no... More

As a group we ordered the Blue Point Oysters, Maryland Lump Crab Cakes, Clam Chowder, and the Hawaiian Ahi Tuna. I enjoyed all of it, but some in group thought the Clam Chowder was average and should've been in a bread bowl. Everyone thought the Ahi Tuna was exceptional (cooked in a ginger soy sauce). Add in a few carafes... More

This used to be one of our favorite restaurants in SLC, but in the last couple of years it seems that the quality of food has declined and the prices have increased. We've been going to the oyster bar for about a decade (I even have their dining rewards card), and about two years ago it seemed to start going... More

They use the freshest produce and meats from the fish to the beef. We go there about every week and have never had anything bad. The only compliant is that they stop serving food around 10:00 pm The bartenders are always friendly and serve excellent drinks.

They fly fresh seafood in every day I think. It is one of my favorite places to eat in SLC. Not that expensive either.

Really nice place with trendy atmosphere. The clam chowder may be the best I have ever had. Highly recommend.
