About
Taylor Oyster Bar is the perfect place to meet and share world-class shellfish at happy hour or special occasions, as a pre-dinner appetizer or a late-night snack, or whenever you gather with family, friends, and colleagues. As far as we are concerned, any time is a good time to celebrate the oyster!

There is more than oysters here. The clam chowder is delicious. The charred leeks was amazingly delicious. Muscles and the tuna were fantastic. We were satisfied.

Great selection of oysters . Wine list very steep priced. Ordered Raw scallops . Only one scallop almost not prepared/seasoned and therefore a bit overpriced in my opinion. Nice but expensive Sancerre .
