A word from Market Street Oyster Bar - Downtown
Since 1980, the Market Street Grill & Oyster Bar has been rated as Utah’s most popular seafood concept, providing exceptional service and award-winning menu selections. Bustling wait staff and exhibition kitchens contribute to a sparkling, high-energy atmosphere where the best seafood between Seattle and Boston is served in an expansive variety of contemporary dishes.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Went for dinner after arriving from the airport. We were able to get there an hour before the reservation but they seated us quickly anyway. Seafood was very good. Large portions. We enjoyed it."

  • "I drove down from Brigham City to celebrate my Mom's 78th birthday. She had been craving a crab omelet. On Sunday they have a set in stone brunch menu, absolutely no changes! The only day of the week you can't get a plain crab omelet! They do offer a seafood omelet which we ended up having and it was very good. The reason behind the brunch menu is to make it affordable to all, but it wouldn't hurt to have a few pricier items on the list too. All in all the brunch was good and my Mother enjoyed everything. Our server, Elizabeth, was outstanding and the price extremely affordable but I was prepared to pay for a CRAB OMELET !!!"

  • "We have been patrons of The Oyster Bar for 20+ years so we've come to expect a certain standard, however our meal failed to meet it during our last 2 visits. The Oysters Rockefeller were the highlight of the evening, but at $15 for 6 small oysters, they may be the only thing we'll get in the future. My husband was surprised at the small pieces in the Fish and Chips entree, so much in fact, that he asked for them to bring another piece because one was just a small bite-size piece. I always order the Halibut Oscar, but was disappointed as well this time as it was difficult to detect any hint of crab in the Oscar mixture. It appears the prices keep going up but the quality and portions continue to diminish. Maybe it's time for a change."

  • "I guess if you play it safe with what you serve, you can be a pretty popular restaurant. Service is okay but the food is mediocre at best. Oysters were okay but they were raw so they really didn't do anything to them. Everything else is under seasoned and boring."

  • "Great food and great service. Loved that the bread kept coming."

  • "I used to frequent here with clients over the years, but recently, I've found the quality of the food to lack compared to the high prices. The oysters were fantastic (Blue Points were reasonably priced on special) but my fish lacked flavor as did my client's steak. We also had to track our server down twice for drink and water refills, yet the restaurant wasn't very busy. I will probably look for an alternate SLC downtown dinner destination next time."

  • "Some co-workers of mine decided to have a Friday night out at the Oyster Bar. We were seated and attended too quickly. I've always been a fan of this restaurant. It's is rare thing to have quality seafood in a Utah restaurant. My only complaints would be that the caesar salad dressing was too thick and had much too much lemon in it. I almost always order this salad and have enjoyed it every time but I was not able to eat more than a few bites this last time. Also, my wine glass sat empty for what seemed to me like an unnecessary amount of time given that the restaurant was not crowded at all. Otherwise, the experience was a good one."

  • "We come to salt lake from idaho for our valentine dinner every year and we always eat at market street.The oysters were great along with my crab dinner my wife's halibut was equally very good we have done this every year for twenty years."

  • "This restaurant advertises with great flare that they have BluePoint oysters for 99cents every day in the month of February. With a dinner reservation at 7:15p (clearly there was room at 7:00 but no seats were "available") we find that they are "out," because, of course, these are Fresh and you just can't have too many around. We were also told that the Talapia (advertised as "long fin" talapia--come on, "long fin" talapia) was also out. This was a Sunday evening of a Holiday weekend. The manager apologized for the absence of the BluePoint oysters on "special" but was willing to split the cost of an order of other types, which were significantly more expensive. Go somewhere else; Salt Lake has many more interesting places."

  • "The Cioppino was excellent. Service was excellent and be careful about the bread, it's addicting. We have been very pleased with this consistently very good restaurant for over 10 years."

  • "The original Oyster Bar is getting a little run down, and the service is not as good as the other stores. It is still a great place to eat, but with the other Market Street stores and increased competition, this place is falling back into the pack."
