Frequently asked questions

Is the Oyster House a full-service restaurant?

 The Oyster House is a counter service restaurant.


This means there is full service at the bar counters. At a table, simply find your spot inside or outside, grab a menu from any of the bars or order window and place your order there. Grab your own drinks and we will give you a tracker for your food. Place that tracker on your table and we will bring your food to your table when it’s ready. Quick and easy!

Are children welcome?

Of course! Children are very welcome at The Oyster House. We even have a kid’s menu. We do ask that anyone under 21 years not be at the bar counters after 5pm, and young children must be closely supervised at all times and not run or wander around the property.

Do you take reservations?

 We do not take reservations for groups of less than 15 people and operate on a first come first serve basis.

To book a group of more than 15, please email us at
