I love Oyster Bar!! The food there is always amazing and the servers are the best. All of them have been there for many years, probably because the owner Steve is a great guy.

This may be small but the service is above and beyond what you would ever imagine. The food is top notch. What a wonderful way to step into the past and take in the old charm of this restaurant. All are friendly and you will want to back after your first time and not just for the food, but the... More

Small dining area, back dining room is through the kitchen, bathroom is the size of a phone booth. Food is incredible! Believe me when I say I am extremely picky with fish and steaks. The oyster bar stays right in their wheelhouse serving up the best seafood and steaks in Fort Wayne. The ribeye is one of the best steaks... More

We make it a point to eat at the Oyster Bar at least twice a year. There is a quaint ambiance to the atmosphere that just can't be duplicated. There are reasons the OB has been a Fort Wayne landmark since the late 1800's. We made 6:00 reservations to celebrate my wife's birthday. We arrived about 15 minutes early but... More

Absolutely love this tiny little place! This was our first time visiting. The place is small; yet, it has a wonderful atmosphere. The waitress was friendly and ordered suggestions for our first visit. We had the crab cakes to start. Very unique blend but VERY tasty with the dill sauce on top. I ordered the chicken Cobb salad. It was... More

Absolutely one of the best experiences I have ever had. Called for reservations. She advised to come 30 min later for a better table. Found a surprisingly small restaurant but incredible food & service. Historic atmosphere and fabulous seafood. If you're in Ft Wayne, don't miss this

I love the small, quaint sort of New York City feel of the front dining room. The drinks are fabulous, the food is sensational If you like seafood, they can prepare it any way you like it. Definitely one of our go to local favorites.

Cozy little place close to downtown. They have great cocktails, service, seafood and steaks. Great place to take date or small business dinner. The shrimp app is wonderful very spicy with blue cheese and celery. The Walleye and scallops are fantastic.
