Saturday was a special evening. One of our daughters was inducted into Psi Chi, The International Honor Society for Psychology and to celebrate we wanted a great restaurant near her school – Misericordia University.
We did. Oyster Seafood and Steakhouse was fantastic. We would have expected to find a restaurant of this caliber in the NY metro area, what a wonderful surprise to find it in Wilkes-Barre PA.
The décor is interesting, lots of brick, sheer curtains and candles. An ideal location for that special romantic dinner.
The food was incredible, the portions ample and the service was good in a “Legal Seafood” sort of way.
Each of us had an appetizer; the spicy sushi tuna tempera roll was a hit with both of my daughters, my son loved the crab cake which seemed to be 99% lump crab, I had the Carpaccio and my wife a salad. Needless to say the appetizers set a high bar for the pending entrees.
The entrees were sensational. The girls has a special of the night – tuna prepared with 7 types of pairs described as “incredible”, my wife had a surf and turf special with the lobster tail stuffed with crab – there was so much crab she had to dig to find the lobster tail. My son and I each had steaks – extremely tender and perfectly done.
We topped off the evening with cappuccino and a couple of shared deserts.
This is not your every day, let’s grab dinner place – too expensive for that. It is a fantastic option if you want to celebrate or impress someone.
