My husband and I decided to finally go.. we'd gotten into a rut of going to the same place over and over again. We'd heard that the Oyster Bar was beyond great but also heard that reservations were hard to come by - they were correct on both fronts. Since there were no table reservations we were able to reserve... More

This is the kind of place you want to visit only very occasionally or for special really events. Everything about the experience is excellent or beyond but the place is extremely expensive. The food is the best you'll ever get, the service and ambiance top-notch, and the place is about 120 (or more) years old. No part of the meal... More

After living in Fort Wayne for 18 years and leaving in 1992 I decided to revisit one of my old favorites. I was not disappointed. Small and quaint with excellent service that still offers outstanding food. Not for bargain shoppers but if you want great food in a wonder atmosphere this is the place . All of us had snook....

Tucked away near the center on Fort Wayne is this great little seafood place! Wait staff was friendly and in tune with what we needed and when we needed it. We ate in the "back room" and loved the intimate feeling and quietness for good conversation. It's a small place with great atmosphere, perfect for parties of 2 or 3.... More

The food is so good and the service is excellent. Great food choices....a bit pricey but it is worth it for what you get. Love the atmosphere...upscale bar/restaurant with a bit of a rustic feeling.

Great oysters, especially for being so far from the gulf and east coast. The grouper prepared Oscar, was outstanding. My buddies had sea bass and they said it was very good. Susan, the manger, waited on us and she was very thorough and professional. The entire staff, including Leonard and the other chefs, were very friendly and helped make the... More
