Went out with a friend for a light lunch. Had an oyster sampler, crab cake balls, and fried calamari. Each dish was very good. For being in Utah, I was shocked at how fresh the oysters tasted! I've always been told that your oysters should "Taste like the seashore, not the fish store" and The oyster bar nailed it. Full... More

We've eaten here on two separate trips to SLC. It's a block and a half from the Capital theatre which makes it a good choice either before or after a show. Friends said breakfast here is excellent. Dinner was very good, but no better or worse than similar fish and steak restaurants in other cities. We have lived in Seattle... More

I give this place a perfect score. To "die-for" clam chowder, fresh blue point oysters for 99cents ea and a lunch crab louie out of this world. My waiter was Johnathan --his excellent service topped it all off-- It doesn't get any better....

My colleague and I were NOT impressed with service or food here. We were here on business & wanted to try something different. We should have chose another restaurant. Our dinner took over 2 hours with drinks, apps, and entrees. We had to ask multiple times for water refills and we saw people that came in after us that were... More

you would not believe it is possible to get as good sea food, so fare from the sea. But everything tasted fresh and was well prepared. The service is good, you must accept a fairly high noise level.

Peter, Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to leave such a nice review! As you found, It is possible to get fresh seafood in a land-locked state. We like to think of the location of our restaurant as the 'middle of all oceans', most of our seafood is flown in every day. Hope to see you... More
