Benefiting from the region’s many local farmers and fisherman, Oyster Club features bounty from the sea, pasture raised beef, local produce and artisanal cheeses, selections of which will change daily.

Everything about this place is special and amazing. The decor, staff and of course the food are truly outstanding. We had brunch there and we can’t wait to go back for dinner next time we are in the area. Top 5 one of our best dining experiences ever!

Beautiful restaurant and the staff were all amazing. Unfortunately the menu is extremely limited and besides oyster raw and roasted there isn’t any seafood on the menu except a scallop entree. The portions are incredibly small . I ordered the small portion of pasta for my daughter and it wasn’t enough for her and she is only 8. You also have to pay for bread !! We didn’t realize before we went that over half of the menu is small appetizers but large prices. Dessert menu was disappointing and we went elsewhere for that . It was an expensive meal to still leave hungry .

Oysters were perfect, great drink selection, hostess was fantastic, food was good but not great. Waiter was condescending bordering on argumentative. Bathrooms were clean. Would definitely go again, but hope for a better server.

We had another phenomenal experience here. The food was brilliant as always and the service was perfect. We had ninigret nectars, oysters Rockefeller, monkfish with lobster etouffée, koji fried fluke, and brown butter almond cake. For drinks we had old fashioned, the verdejo and Chardonnay, then I finished with a French 75 which was delightful! As always we already can’t wait for our next visit.

The food was prepared excellently. The choices seemed much less than I remember. Everything, and I mean everything was priced à la cart. Six dollars for bread seems a little much. Or entrees did not include even a small portion of vegetables or anything else. Quite pricey for the portion size.

The atmosphere is amazing. Very relaxing, ambient and design and decor. The staff was great. The menu is very limited and offers under 5 actual meals. However, it is supposed to be a limited menu since it’s farm to table. We were not able to stay beyond appetizers due to the menu limitations. The few items that were on the menu were highly priced for what was offered. After our family finished appetizers we went for dinner elsewhere. Which was disappointing. I would go back if they expand their menu and adjust prices.

It came very highly recommended by a friend, but I was disappointed to learn they only had a prix fixe menu on New Years Eve. It wasn’t posted on the website a few days in advance and I only learned of it a few hours before our meal. I was enticed by their original offerings, but bummed with having far fewer options with the prix fixe option.

I also had originally considered getting our food to go as the website also indicated, but later learned that was also not an option.

All things considered, the service was great, the staff was friendly, but the food was so-so. Unfortunate given that it was New Years Eve. I’d go back to see what it is on a normal night, but wish the restaurant had communicated their offerings better.

An elite dining establishment. Excellent beer/wine/cocktails, otherworldly food. My girlfriend is extremely difficult to please but have her scallops dish a 10/10. She’s never given a meal a perfect rating in the three years we’ve dated.

After a lengthy hiatus (for us) it was great to be back at Oyster Club. They’ve clearly upped their game. The dining room is slightly larger and the tables well spaced to respect pandemic caution. We arrived exactly on time and we were immediately seated. Our server, who was covering a fair amount of real estate was with us in less than five minutes. My New England clam chowder app was over the top excellent as were Jeffrey’s mussels. Likewise my tagliatelle main and Jeffrey’s scallops. What a treat the whole experience was and that includes our very personable and professional server. First use ever of Open Table points which transaction went through flawlessly.

Food is pricey but very good. The cocktails and wine selections were great, and the bartender, although really busy, was great to chat to about them. A really nice evening out, or we also like their brunch a lot.

We have had many great experiences at Oyster Club and their collab with Mr. Tuna was no exception! We knew the food would be amazing (and it was completely flawless), but the service was a huge standout for us. Our server (Tony? Maybe? I apologize as I can't remember for sure) was knowledgeable, upbeat, personal, and passionate about our experience. Finding professional service that still seems warm and tailored to our table's personalities is a rarity these days and for that we are so thankful!

The Mr. Tuna experience. I felt that the marketing for the event made it seem like the price was $75 per person INCLUDING the drink pairing. Everything was delicious besides the 4th course. Which was the Big eye tuna. I felt the event would have been better had it continue to focus on raw sushi offerings. The cooked tuna wasn’t very impressive and the sake that matched it was the least favorable of the drink pairings. Overall the event was a 3.7/5 stars. Had it been $100 for drinks and food and the one dish changed, this would have been a perfect experience. Overall glad things like this are going on in my area and I’m willing to stick around while the kinks are worked out.

Everything was very good except the lobster roll. I've had it in the past and it was amazing. Overstuffed and delicious but this time it was on the meager side and the lobster was most definitely overcooked. The oysters and the service were great and the wine was so good. I gave it a higher rating this time mostly because this was the first time in which the lobster roll was not as expected.

We ate in the main dining room and as soon as you walk in you can tell you are eating at a very high quality establishment - low lighting, quiet but still with a good energy...

Our server, Drew, was marvelous with her food and drink recommendations. We Ordered the Ceaser Salad and the Mussels with the Sourdough bread and it was absolutely outstanding... I just wish we had come more hungry so we could have tried more of the menu offerings...

Lastly, the PUMPKIN CHEESECAKE.... It was one of the best desserts I've ever had. Couldn't recommend it more.
