The quantity of food was quite small, though.8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHad brunch there for the buckHad brunch there for the buck a shuck oysters, which is a great deal. Portions of the other food are on the small side, though tasty. Restaurant had one highchair only.7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat oyster special @ pricey jointTasty oysters. Buck-a-shuck special is the best on the menu, available all day Sunday and Tuesday and before 6pm or after 9pm the rest of the week. I enjoyed all of what we ate--a cheese and charcuterie platter, dessert.
I really enjoyed our meal, but I was separated from a substantial amount of money for very good but not world-beating food. I'd go again, but I think I'd skip the expensive wine and cheese. Those are things I can probably do myself at the store and be just as satisfied.7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatOrdered two dozen oysters, the bone marrow and scalloped potatos. All were delicious. The service was perfect. Will definitly return.5/28/2013 12:00:00 AMOysters on The Drive? Yes, please!My husband and I came here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We only had an hour and a half to dine while our kids were taking an evening class. We received complimentary glasses of sparkling wine and dessert. the oysters was wonderful! The charcuterie platter was delicious. We managed to have a wonderful meal and leave in time to pick up our kids at 8 pm. The service was very attentive and the dining experience was top notch! Merchant's is not only a great restaurant for The Drive, it's a great restaurant, period! The prices are very reasonable too. Forget about going downtown or to the Westside, The Drive is where the good food is happening now. What a welcome addition to the neighbourhood. I highly recommend Merchant's Oyster Bar.5/27/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellent food and a great valueWe had the Lobster Benedict, Veggie Benedict and the Cheese Biscuits.

We all had the WINTER PRIX FIXE 3 COURSE dinner; which is a great value! We're lovers of raw oysters so we started with a dozen; came with variety of different sizes. Second course I had the ALBACORE TUNA POKE, absolutely delightful. For my main I chose the FLAT IRON STEAK, perfectly cooked and well balanced accompanied with the pickled mushroom salad. Each portion sizes were perfect, great flavours in just the right doses. We even had room for dessert. Vanilla gelato w/EVOO is to die for!!! Can't wait to go back and try more dishes on the menu :)2/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
