Unfortunately, they were short on staff or I would have given 5 stars for the overall review. Excellent food!!!
Restaurant needs some updating. Our server, Michael, was wonderful. He was funny and delightful. He did tell us an update was in the making. Food was deliciously. Drinks were good.
First time there the place was awesome.Romantic candle dinner before going to concert Beth Hart Kenny Wayne Sheppard awesome concert . Staff at oyster was great Michael great server . Food was fabulous go chef you got it down .Will be back some day soon .
Could be best restaurant in Wilkes-Barre....great food....reasonable...awesome cosmos...excellent service
A date and I went here this past Saturday night at 7:30, and we were the only diners there. The host was over the top energetic to the detriment. The romantic dining music was drowned out by an extremely loud rock band playing next door. The crab cocktail app was served in a martini glass with the cocktail sauce buried underneath the crab; nice for presentation, terrible for actually eating. The food itself was palatable, but very underwhelming for a fine dining restaurant. The $75 bill wasn't worth it and I do not recommended this establishment for any event.
My friends and I had a wonderful dinning experience at Oysters. Great menu selections.
This was by far the worst dining experience...ever. We weren't asked for a drink order. We had to flag down our waitress to have any service at all. We were going to a show at the Kirby Theatre. It took 20 minutes to get our drinks and we left before we had anything to eat. There were 3 tables seated and the kitchen was in the weeds. We (and the others) had to leave before we were served any food...45 minutes after ordering. We actually ran around the corner to The Franklin, who served us some quick appetizers so we could eat before the show. Great place! There is no rating on this scale to convey how awful this restaurant is. Beyond disappointing...steer clear!
Out of Towners. Food not so great, barely warm enough to eat. Flat ginger ale. Weird decor. I would go back if somebody paid me and threatened my kid.
The food was very good, but I'm not sure is worth the high prices. The clams Rockefeller were good, but I think they minced the clams because I didn't taste them. Only one kind of Sauvignon blanc, the house brand- Woodbridge- not the best wine for the menu. The steak was perfectly cooked medium-rare and the chocolate dessert is a must. While it has a fancy decor with a Chuhuly chandelier, some of the decor needs updating. All in all, it was good and I would go back.
We went for my son's college graduation.It wasn't crowded so that worried me at first but the food and service was excellent.The staff made it a fun night.When we are in the area again we will return.
Never disappointed ! Local couple who dines there often
it was excellent that michael was back everything as usual was excellent
The food was AMAZING and the service was spot on!!! Had never heard of Oysters before our visit - but will ABSOLUTELY revisit and recommend!!!
Service was terrible. Sat and had no one approach table for 10 minutes, then no drinks for another 15 minutes. Getting any drinks there after (1 more) took a half hour
Loved it. Had a wonderful birthday dinner here. Will be returning soon!
Love this restaurant , Very Romantic. Food is excellent and the Service was great
Oyster was terrible. Waiter was very rude and never checked up on us. Atmosphere was very weird and awkward. Did not enjoy myself one bit. Food was bland and over priced.
It was awesome! From the food,and service. Very caring staff!
Service was great. It’s like walking into a John Waters movie. Different atmosphere.
A bit understaffed. The bartender was downright ornery. The decor made no sense. The food was tasty and so were the martinis
We have visited the restaurant on numerous occasions n the food is amazing its the first place I took my girlfriend who i am proud to say is now my wife love the oyster.
In town for a concert and the Oyster is about a block from the Kirby Center. Oyster had some
staffing issues the Saturday nite of our visit. At the bar, the stand-in bartender while hustling was just not that familiar with the layout. Went to check in for out reserved (5:15) table no one was in that position. Waited about 5 minutes another party showed up, mean while table servers passed by on the way to the bar for drinks. After another few minutes the bartender noticing that no one was taking care of the those waiting, came over and seated us and the other couple. There were already 4 tables occupied. Waiter provided adequate service, but was not very commutative, and didn't recheck with water fill ups, or a "how is the meal". Maybe staffing was problematic with flue season?? The food was good to very good. Both the signature chicken meal and the haddock in butter/lemon sauce were larger proportions than one usually finds in an up scale restaurant. And they were delivered hot. The decor is rather unique and enjoyed the relatively quiet dining environment.
Overall very good. Food excellent preparation.
Service, in my opinion, perhaps under staffed and lack of experience. I would return as a customer.
Friendly, attentive and knowledgeable staff. Nice atmosphere and delicious food.
My wife and I are new to the area and enjoy finding good restaurants. Oyster did not disappoint, the food was excellent the ambiance was great and the service was fantastic. The wait staff was extremely friendly, I would definitely recommend them.
I took my girl there for her Birthday. The food was cold and not very good. Our waiter Michael was fantastic and did a great job. Personally i won’t be going back to Oysters!!
Server was very nice, however no knowledge of wine service. Food preperation was not top quality.
Unassuming location with an unusual set up but the food was very good and the bartender, waiter and host Michael was great. Get that man some help.
My wife and I were in town and we ate here for our anniversary. Food was great, very enjoyable.
Fantastic as usual
Excellent in everything - service, atmosphere, and especially the food!! Go - you won’t regret it!!
Took my girlfriend out for a date night after seeing all the great reviews for this place we decided to try it. Was totally worth it. Best meal either of us has had in NEPA. We had 5 star service. Michael greeted as we walked in and treated us like family very thorough and tremendous personality. We had another waitress who was also very helpful. Then to top it all off the owner came over when my girlfriend had to go to the bathroom and took her plate to keep it warm while she was gone. Absolutely incredible service. Best I’ve ever had hands down. Food was amazing too. Would recommend it to everyone. Definitely will go back
Loved everything about this place the food the waiter the scenery everything
While the atmosphere was just OK, the service was really good unfortunately the food was not good. I would not feel comfortable recommending this restaurant to other diners.
Celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. From the time we walked in we felt like we were the only people there. we had someone there for whatever we wanted. The waiter made suggestions from the menu which were fantastic. Food, atmosphere, waiting staff were all great!! How had wonderful night.
We were there for a pre-concert at the Kirby Center meal . It's in a Best Western within close walking distance to the venue with easy parking also nearby. The bar and bartender were fabulous, generous and well made drinks with fresh and diverse ingredients, think lots of fresh mint in our mojito and a really interesting botanical gin martini. The restaurant was very noisy and became quickly crowded as the concert time neared. I mention this because the only flaw in the evening was the overworked and underprepared staff. The food was excellent but given this was the night of a concert, they should have had more people serving. The folks there were as attentive as they could be but we had to ask several times for them to come back to our table. I would definitely go there again but would suggest management be more proactive in keeping the place fully staffed.
It would be great to have the option of an Oyster dish for lunch!
The staff was rude to new clients. Salad did not have ingredients listed on menu. When I asked for bread the waitress said she had to check they said I could not have bread. They offer cold pizza as an appetizer that was awful. The steak au poive was doused in pepper balls. Just awful
Had the calamari for a appetizer and a tuna tempura roll the calamari was good the roll was all rice don't order. Main course was scallops which was good but very salty drank water all night mouth was so dry, wife had the chicken Marsala which had no taste the waiter was very nice,but I think you could find a much better place to have a nice dinner than here. I came here because of trip advisor
