Oyster Bar
Spoto's Oyster Bar in Palm Beach Gardens is as authentic as you can get. With fresh-shucked cold water oysters that come from Long Island and Cape Cod along with a full menu of seafood delights, there is no reason to go anywhere else in search of a premier oyster bar. Patrons can dine inside or outside, weather permitting, for lunch or dinner.

The main event at Spoto's Oyster Bar is, of course, the oysters on the half shell; menu doesn't disappoint. Enjoy Bluepoint from Long Island, Wellfleet from Cape Cod and a daily featured oyster the chef has selected. Littleneck and Cherrystone clams from Cape Cod are also on the menu. Both oysters and clams are offered raw as well as in many dishes.

Exceptional! We have gone at least a half a dozen times and they never disappoint. The food is on point, the service is fantastic and management from the front of the house to the back, make a point of stopping by and doing a quality check. They pay attention to what and how we order and have made some amazing suggestions. The oysters are stellar, but they are far more than an oyster bar. Too many delicious choices... new discovery was the maple glazed salmon! So good I thought about ordering another to take home. Wonderful date stop, but also love going as a family. Their bar has a wide variety of selections as well if you appreciate a good cocktail. Yum!!!

Excellent Oysters but very expensive. Their prices have increased since last season. They also shortened their menu.

Hi Fantastic, Several months ago we rolled out our new menu (the last one was 3 years ago). We held our prices for that time period even though our costs went up. With the hiring of a new Executive Chef, our menu has many new exciting dishes and (of course) we kept most of the old favorites. As the area's only Iconic Authentic Oyster Bar you can be assured that our Oysters and Seafood are the freshest and best tasting! We thank you for the review!

Responded on November 11, 2020

Hi Janet, We take every guest comment very seriously. We have a dinner special every night. Our "specials" are not discounted price specials. They are the inspired creations of our Executive Chef and his Culinary Team. The evening you were there, the Special was a 2 1/2 lb Whole Yellowtail Snapper. When your server described the dish you were told the price. We have sold dozens of this dish and we stand by the price. One star for a child crying?

There was a very crowded open bar. Nobody at the bar wore masks. We will not return because even though we ate outside socially distanced the bar scene creates a health risk.

Hi Judi, At Spotos we are doing everything we can to make you feel safe and comfortable. Masks are used by our staff and required by guests for navigating throughout the restaurant. We have an employee who does nothing but sanitize all surfaces during service. Our inside dining is still at 50% and our outdoor seating is very well socially distant. If the bars being open to 100% bothers you, don't sit at the bar! If dining out is not for you, remember we are still offering To Go.

Always a great experience. This time we got the special fish which was yellow tail snapper. We didn’t realize it was whole, and I personally wouldn’t have ordered had I known it was whole, but it was excellent, more than enough for sharing. The price of $68 reflected the size and quality. Oysters and martinis excellent as always.

The bottle prices for wine here are already 400% above retail, but what was annoying was that the two-most reasonably priced wines were sold out, and when we asked for a same priced substitution we were refused.
