I’m a local and have been wanting to go to the Oyster Bar for a while. We did go on another evening but the line was long and we were hungry. They do not take reservations. There are about 16 bar stools with food prepared...in front of you. So fun to watch the chef creat dishes. He was friendly and answered our questions even though he was very busy. The line is nearby and you are seated as chairs empty. They have installed plexiglass between parties. I would not recommend going with more than two people or your wait could be even longer. My husband and I went on a Wednesday at 5pm. We waited 30 minutes. I ordered the Pan Roast Combo with shrimp, crab and lobster. It comes with a side of rice. It was a large portion and absolutely delicious. My husband ordered the bouillabaisse. It was full of muscles, shrimp, lobster, clams. It also came with a side of rice. You can dictate the degree of heat (spicy ness) you want in your dish. His portion was also large. He loved it. We both took home leftovers. The only thing I didn’t care for was the complimentary bread roll. It was tough like it had been microwaved and zero flavor. We will definitely be back. I may have dreams about the Pan Roast!

The Pan Roast was recommended by our waitress Dina and boy was it good! I ordered it without shrimp - just pile on the crab meat and lobster in an amazing sauce. They actually have you pick your spicy level for the base - on...a scale of 1-10. I chose a level 6-7 and it was perfect. I had a beautiful shrimp cocktail first that was enough for a whole dinner. I loved the HUGE shrimp with cocktail sauce and horseradish peppered on top. YUM ! My husband had the jambalaya with sausage and that was also great. Warning - you will wait in a long, huge line for this place - so get there early...p.s. you can get a nice glass of KJ chardonnay also so don't worry.More

Not happy. We looked forward to an Oyster Bar visit on our latest Vegas trip. It was not to be. To all of you who wonder if the long lines are hype--I could only wish. To the Oyster Bar: You need to make a change....Some of these reviewers are speaking of 2hr waits. Well, they are damn lucky. The wait times the weekend of October 9-10, 2020 things have changed--and not for the better. The lines are 3 1/2 min to 4 1/2. We tried three different occasions. 10:30 at night, 11:00 am, and 2:00 am. Yea, 2 am!!. VERY LONG lines. And the people sitting and chatting do NOT make it any better. The Oyster Bar needs to set up a reservation system or limit seating time. They will make $$$$$ either way. But it is very unnecessary that patrons wait 2, 3, even 4 hours for a meal. NO MATTER HOW GOOD IT IS. I understand you not wanting to expand your restaurant (and chance watering down your great product), but you have PAST THE PERIOD of puffing your chest that "people wait in line for our food." Now we've entered a new period--THERE ARE OTHER PLACES IN VEGAS. IT'S NOT WORTH THE WAIT. Please work on this. We'll check in again soon. P.S. I had written an earlier review heaping praise on the food. And I mostly laughed at the wait times. But it's just SO MUCH WORSE now.More

We stood at the podium and was ignored by the entire staff. Nobody ever acknowledged us. You could tell that Nobody wanted to wait on us. It was 7:35pm on a Thursday night 10/1/2020. No excuses. Find people that want to make money and please...guests. Our 38th wedding anniversary.More

I see people complain about the wait at this place. And it is considerable. I've been several times and the last time my wife and I arrived just after midnight and ate around 1:15. First time for my wife. And I built it up quite...a bit~~~ But--as I had promised her it was GREAT. BEST RESTAURANT GUMBO you will get. You want better? You must hav a aunt in Baton Rouge or New Orleans. And--sorry Auntie--this is most like fresher! Cooked right in fro n of you in steam pots. Different varieties of the cajun/creole food and I've yet to have a bad meal. Can't wait to go again. Hey! Don't cut in line!!More

That would be sometime in the early am, maybe between 2-8 am. I went at 11pm and waited until after 1am to get seated. Food is good but not worth that wait. Pan roasted shrimp, crab and lobster, New Orleans food style.

The oyster bar at the palace station is one of the better meals I had while in Vegas. However, you need to be aware that this location has severe lines at times. it took me about 20 minutes to get through the line and enjoy...my meal however I heard during busy times it can take up to 2 hours.More

You might be able to ask for a special meal be made without seafood like with chicken or sausages. If you don't like seafood, you should pass on it. Unless of course there's others in your party that want to eat seafood... More
