“Great seafood”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

All the entrees the 4 of us selected were fantastic. We will go back again. The prices were fair, service was great and the decor was fitting to a seafood restaurant.

“John's Oyster Bar at the Nugget”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

The seafood is always fresh and the pan roasts are wonderful and filling! The service was great and we enjoyed the warm bread upon being seated at our table.

“A crab pan roast you will never forget”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

I've been eating the Crab Pan Roast at the Nugget's Oyster Bar for decades, and am still willing to drive over 500 miles just to have more. This last visit, I found it can be made with 2% milk instead of heavy cream, and it is almost as good! The Oyster Bar is a fabulous place to eat, and I can also recommend the seafood platter.

“Great seafood, better steak?”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

What a great place. Authentic atmosphere, friendly service.
Even better, if you are not a seafood lover, they will allow you to order from the steakhouse menu.
This is a great service to their guests and shows how the staff is willing to make your party happy.

The pan roast is delicious. It sometimes has a little too much salt in it but you can request no salt.
The bread is loaded with flavor.

I highly recommend visiting this restaurant based on good service and food.
