Not much variety on the menu expect seafood. Good place for a quiet drink after walking along the pier in the afternoon.

Busy restaurant with a bar and light dinner. We had some drinks with oysters - both natural and cooked. It was delicious and we had some light dinner with chowder and prawn sticks.

We had a quiet lunch on a Tuesday afternoon to celebrate my wife's birthday. Having been to the Oyster Bar a few times, we always have a good experience.

Beers were cold and well priced and there is a great wine selection. We didn't intend to eat there but ended up sharing oysters and a platter. Beautiful food... More

Ordered mixed dozen oysters and 14 came! Apparently certain nights have special on. They were delicious. Staff friendly, nice outdoor setting. Would definitely go back if I lived in Adelaide.

Enjoyed a mixed dozen oysters. They were amazing. Tried kilpatrick, a spinach mornay, Thai and the special with bacon, mushrooms and aioli. Couldn't work out which one to save for last. Good wine selection to match. Thanks!
