We are not into oysters. Came here for the crab cakes which were excellent. Clam chowder was great. And our biggest surprise was the exceptionally tasty hamburger (which we did not expect in an oyster bar). Overall highly recommended.

Best fresh oysters in San Jose area - period! Oh and one of the best bloody mary's I've ever had - waiter said they have a special house made mix. Highly recommend.

Service is very nice, warm bread to start your dinner, which goes so well with the delicious clam chowder! Oyster is great! Have to have early seating in order to have the full choice of oyster bar!
