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.

Fresh Oysters in a landlocked state! I went here for dinner with a coworker and was lucky to be there on a Monday night when Oysters are half off. There were three varieties available and were classically presented. My salmon entree was delicious; I had the prix fixe menu with the Salmon wrapped in a banana leaf on a plank.... More

My wife and I have patronized this restaurant for over 25 years. Their prices have finally pushed us over the edge. We bought two halibut steaks and two Caesar salads to eat at home. The price was $45!!! The salad servings were half what they used to be and the halibut was fishy. I can no longer justify supporting this... More

I know, I know. Who would order raw oysters in a land-locked place like Salt Lake City?! That's what I said to our friendly and efficient server. "We fly them in fresh from...," he said. So one of my two dining companions and I ordered two plates: me, an assortment; she, one kind, but I forgot which. She was reluctant... More
