I love the small, quaint sort of New York City feel of the front dining room. The drinks are fabulous, the food is sensational If you like seafood, they can prepare it any way you like it. Definitely one of our go to local favorites.

Cozy little place close to downtown. They have great cocktails, service, seafood and steaks. Great place to take date or small business dinner. The shrimp app is wonderful very spicy with blue cheese and celery. The Walleye and scallops are fantastic.

My husband made a reservation at 7:30 pm on 2/11/17. We arrived at 7:27. We walked in and we're told our table was " cashing out". We said we'd wait outside for such a short wait. After 15 min. We went to the entry way. My husband checked and was told just a few more minutes. By 7:55 we noticed... More

Wonderful, Fabulous, Great. Still one of the best restaurants in Fort Wayne. Excellent service. Wish I could remember the Chardonnay . It was yummy. I had the walleye and ate every bit. Everyone was pleased.

My wife and I love this place. The Cesar Salad is amazing, and the oysters on the half is always a good choice. If you are in town and looking for a great place to eat I recommend that you eat here. The front room always seems small to me, but they have a back room through the kitchen that... More

Cozy atmosphere...good food...tight eating area...not good for big groups...I like the 1/2 and 1/2 option to try multiple entrees.

My wife and I go here frequently. We love their oysters, but our favorite appetizer is the Louisiana BBQ Shrimp. They don't feature on the menu so make sure to ask for it. The clam chowder is the best around. I can't say I have had anything here I didn't like. Last night we went for my birthday. I had... More

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

One of the better meals I have had the pleasure of experiencing. It is small and yeh, your are going to spend a little, but an absolute example of your get what you pay for. If you like a small quaint old style tavern with fantastic food, this is your destination. Completely enjoyed the various styles of prepared oysters, order... More
