Great ambiance and service. Good food. Stopped here for dinner on a Sunday night. Had the fried pickle chips (amazeballs), a dozen oysters on the 1/2 shell (get the house ones), a cup of meat chili (not spicy..needed help), seafood gumbo (same thing but amazing...More

Went there with a couple friends that know the area well. It was one of their favorite places and I agree. Great food and nice outdoor eating space too! Don't care for the "valet" parking though, they basically drive your car about 10 feet from...More

Normally when Alaskan Snow Crab is on the menu, it trumps everything else but..., after recommendation from our server, I decided to try the Oyster Sampler and I was very happy I did! Delicious! Great service, great atmosphere...yup, check'em out if you haven't yet!

We had the chilled seafood platter to share for two - it was excellent with plenty of oysters, shrimps and snow crab legs. Good selection of wine and beer in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.

I simply stopped in for some raw oysters. The server recommends the house brand indicating they were the most popular. As a Vermonter fresh oysters are difficult to come by. These oysters were enormous, fresh and juicy. I jjst wish I had been here earlier.

Fontaine's always has fresh oysters regardless of Season. In the summer they come from up North so you do not need to worry about getting sick from oysters. The other food on the menu is also very good.

I've had the opportunity to patron Fontaines for nearly 10 years. The main draw to Fontaines is the consistency. They always have specialty oysters on short order for a more than fair price. A dozen for $12-$15 for Blue Pointe or Basilea is untouchable. Add...More

Had a wonderful evening at Fontaine's Oyster House. Appetizers were delish and nice selection - just wish they offered special cocktail prices during happy hour.
