Giant fresh oysters on the half shell, and fried oyster po'boy were excellent! Others in the party had Smoked Salmon BLT and a Shark Steak special that were amazing. The service was impeccable and the atmosphere charming.

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...More
