This review is moot at this point as the restaurant has burned down. IF they reopen I hope they have better food, better service, and much better management. Imagine have a nice quiet dinner on a Sunday evening while a staff member ran the carpet sweeper beside your table for 4 minutes! Then, try getting the check when all staff had disappeared into the kitchen for a full 10 minutes. This was nothing but a tourist trap in a nice location.

It's burned to the ground now, though I understand they tend to re-open eventually. It's one of those waterside restaurants that gets to skate on its location. The owners' previous experience with restaurants was managing a Dairy Queen. The cartoony decor and ubiquitous televisions are testament to a design sensibility that I find off-putting at best. The food is just mediocre. A fine place to meet with co-workers on a warm Friday for outdoor drinks and appetizers, but otherwise I avoid it.

The Oyster House is an old Olympia landmark. It is currently being rebuilt and we cant wait for it to open. They have great fish and chips and salads - they have other great items too but those are my favorites. We look forward to the reopening.
