Had a great experience with Mike as our server/bartender. We took my dad to Reno to visit an old friend and he had to get oysters. Thank you so much for a very memorable experience.

Terrific Manhattan clam chowder. Oysters were good. Crowded. Service was delayed.

I had the lobster pan roast. Its a specialty of the Oyster Bar. Absolutely excellent with an offer of extra bread as well and crackers on the side. Such a filling, delicious meal especially for lunch.

We were very pleased with the service
They accommodate my companion who has a walker they made sure to give us a table
close to the entrance. Our waitress was very pleasant and gave us good service.
Our table was very clean so where the silverware.
Most of all the fish was fresh and the meal was excellent.
We will keep coming back.

When we lived in Reno, we loved going to the Oyster Bar for their pan roasts. This visit was the first in the eleven years we left and it was the one place we wanted to make sure we went to to eat. And it didn't disappoint. The pan roasts are still delicious and tasted so good after such a long time. The only problem was the service. The Oyster Bar has always seemed very chaotic and disorganized. We did get seated fairly fast because of our reservation, but sat and waited quite a while before we were able to order. After that the food came out quite fast and we enjoyed the meal very much.

Nice to have a sit down seafood dinner diring covid. Seafood seemed pretty fresh, we had a tower and clam chowder. A little more pricey than I expected from the Nugget. Good service.

The fried food looked exceptional.

Excellent overall. For a casino restaurant in the COVID times, the experience was just about as good as could be expected. The Nugget gives food comps that can be used to pay for the meal. Sitting is capped at about 50% and reservations are necessary.

We've never been disappointed with the food at the Oyster Bar. I've tried several things on the menu and liked each one. My husband loves the Lazy Man's Cioppino and orders it every time. Can't go wrong if you love seafood.

Atmosphere with a cute attempt at nautical, appeared old and dated. The ambiance felt more like being in the dark faded 70's than the bright style of 2020. Server was very nice and polite, however seemed new to the business and was knowledge limited. Food was good and fairly priced. My recommendation is no, but if I had the option I would have picked maybe. Yes for a casual quick lunch. No if your looking for a premium experience.

I felt our waiter rushed us through dinner. I ordered the seafood extravaganza for $29 and was very disappointed. The food was very bland and tasteless and the clams, oysters, muscles had very little meat. It was overpriced. I was going to complain to the manager but didn’t take the time. We enjoy the Nugget but our dining experience at Oyster bar disappointed.

Shrimp pan roast was good as usual but we were celebrating a birthday and told the staff that it was a special occasion. Nothing done to make the evening special.

From the moment we arrived we received wonderful service. Our waitress, Bertha, was on the spot and a sweetheart to boot. The steamed clams were excellent and the broth was so good we brought it home to dip our own sourdough bread in! We highly recommend the Oyster Bar at the Sparks Nugget. We will be going back.
