This is an oasis. Great removed location. Wait staff par none. Service like you won't believe. Friendly hands-on management. The menu offers variety. Crab cakes in a league of their own. Variety of fish and beef dishes and you can't go wrong with any choice. My favs are the artichoke and the strawberry-spinach salad. Warning: the servings are generous. If... More

We've been to Opus Bistro several times and have found the food and service to be very good. They specialize in seafood and it has been excellent the times we have been there. The other thing that stands out is the excellent service. Our waiter was very attentive to our needs. Even though the food and service was very good,... More

I took the wife to Opus for Mothers day, 2016. We both had the surf and turf and i can tell you it was in the top three of my favorite dinners. We sat out on the deck, overlooking a small marina and it was fantastic. We have decided that Opus will be our place for special night outs.

Recently had dinner at Opus on a Saturday night, which was a busy night at Opus. But, the service was great and so was the food. Our waiter was very attentive and courteous. The food arrived on time and was very good.

Party of four with appetizers and it was all just average, might make an argument that Olive Garden has better food but your eating on the water in a tourist area. Tables are really close together so your part of everyone's conversation. Service was top notch, timely and friendly but at about 30 bucks a plate and 30 bucks a... More

On a quiet marina with NO traffic lies a Clear Lake Shores gem of a dining spot. The menu is diverse, the meals are fantastic, and the atmosphere defines modern casual elegance. All of our entrees were wonderful. The bananas foster is incredibly delicious. A great spot for a special meal with family and friends.

My wife and I went there for her birthday. I choose the location for one reason. I saw a picture of their signature New Orleans Veal on their website and it looked delicious. We go there and ordered. The meal came out and my meal looked nothing like the picture and was even prepared a different way. I quickly informed... More

Interesting little spot on the South side of the lake with a view of a small Marina. It's a fairly proper etiquette place as far as dress code and decorum. The food is always good and the service is very good too. One of the more sophisticated spot in the area. It's a bit pricey accordingly though.

Dined with son and his wife to celebrate our anniversary. Nice atmosphere with linens, large windows overlooking a few boats in the channel. Very good wine selection as well as wine by the glass recommendations from our waitress. Started with the outstanding Asparagus Parmesan appetizer (highly recommended) and an 8 shrimp cocktail to share (not recommended) as shrimp on the... More

This was our second trip to Opus and based on our first visit we were expecting great food and a fabulous evening. Our waiter was attentive at the beginning of the evening and did an excellent job making my martini to my exact Saco=indications even hand making blue cheese olives. Unfortunately, this was the highlight of our meal. When our... More
