      In town for a sports event. We were the only people in the restaurant. Mikey, our host/bartender/server was fantastic! He was funny and made great recommendations. Food was on par with big name steakhouse.

      Off the cuff decision to visit. Michael our server was excellent. Very old school attention to details. Very interactive and proper. Food was prepared to order so expect some waiting. But this is fine dining...The lobster bisque is a most have. Will be back for our next special occasion.

      We happened upon this place during a trip and were pleasantly surprised at how good the food and the service was. Michael is such a wonderful host and made sure our requests were met and that we had whatever we needed in order to have a great family night out! We will definitely be coming back again!

      My husband and I went for an early Valentine’s Day dinner last night. I have seen the sign so many times and forget about it when I want to go out to dinner. Finally we decided to try it and I am mad at myself for not trying it sooner!!! We were greeted by Michael the bartender/Manager on Duty who was incredibly pleasant and very helpful. Parking is a little funny there so he actually walked out with me to show my husband where to park. He sat is in a great area that looked a little like a gazebo with mosquito netting which I thought was very charming. Our server, Cody I believe his name was, greeted us almost immediately. He told us the favorite items on the menu, and brought our drinks back the appetizers followed very shortly after and he took our dinner order. The food was incredible! The oysters, very fresh and delicious, the wedge salad was amazing. I love that they put a little vinegar and oil to contrast the blue cheese and the bacon was so crispy! The calamari was incredible and had some wilted spinach, capers, banana peppers and had marinara on the side. My filet for dinner was perfectly cooked med rare and had a half of a lobster tail in it which was also cooked perfectly. My husband has a NY strip with an amazing blue cheese and prosciutto cream that was so good I started dipping my food in it! Do not leave without trying their chocolate desert, I forget what it was called but it had chocolate cake, chocolate mouse, molten chocolate and was smothered in a chocolate that hardened a little as it cooled off. We were so happy with the wonderful staff, the amazing food and the ambiance! The only problem that we encountered was that the owner (I think) and an event coordinator (I think) just by hearing their conversation, were incredibly loud in their whole conversation and talking about money. Which I thought was very inappropriate in the dining room during dinner service. That kind of a conversation should not be had around guests in the dining room.

      Thank you for the great comments. Michael is the best and Corey is fast becoming one of our best servers. I appreciate your comments about the food quality and service. The suf & turf is a favorite. Chocolate Decadence is exactly as you describe it!

      We walked in and there was one table taken. The ambiance was unusual in that it almost felt like an old Vegas lounge...to the point we were expecting Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra to come out and do a show. But our waitress, Ajanae, and the host/bartender were extremely personable and attentive and the food.... Oh, the food! We ordered crab cakes, a dozen oysters Rockefeller, meatballs, a tuna tempura sushi roll, and a lobster cocktail....and that was just for appetizers! We also had a filet mignon au poivre, the menage a trois (filet, scallops, and lobster), and a pork cutlet parmesan. There isn't one thing we could find about any of it that we didn't like. I mean, we darn near licked our plates! We ended with a creme brulee that was as perfect as everything else. Don't let the dated interior fool you.... Everything was superb! And all of that food plus three beers and two martinis came to just a bit over $200. Definitely worth every penny!

      Thank you for the great comments on food and service. We are undertaking a remodel and trust you will enjoy it! We do favor Sinatra and Dean Martin music!

      Good value for the food- inexpensive and large portion. The real Achilles heel of this place is the decor and ombiance...the lobster tails were pretty good however.

      Service was very good. Food was not. My salad, described as mixed greens with a ginger sesame dressing, was mostly iceberg lettuce and the dressing would have been good had it been much less watery. My husband got ravioli, which I tasted. The red sauce was boring to the point of being tasteless. Our server was wonderful and attentive, but that couldn't make up for the food, unfortunately.

      The bar manager made amazing drinks and had good conversation. When we were seated is when it went downhill. The waiter was not educated on the menu and when the other couple's food came out wrong, he just stared blankly at us and just removed it from the bill. Appetizers were delicious, entrees were extremely bland. Not the same Oyster it used to be.

      The "filet mignon" meatballs were inedible. Hard, dry and tasteless. Raw oysters were beautifully presented, but in fact were chewy and didn't taste fresh. The wine list included multiple wines by the glass, but the waitress said only one was currently available. Fortunately, it was the wine that I wanted. I'm sure my expectations were too high for the place, but the prices should match the quality, and they do not. It's overpriced for the mediocre quality.

      Food at Oyster was exceptional, prices were a bit high but expected at a fine dining establishment. Only negative was the service had 6pm reservations and was seated immediately. There was only one other table being served when our party of 3 arrived. We did not receive our entrees until 7:40 would not have been a problem but stated several times we had a show at 8pm. If you are not in a hurry or have plans afterwards Oyster is a must.

      We both had steak (two different versions) and both were very good. Salad to start (Caesar and a wedge salad) were also good. Service was solid with very friendly staff.

      Even though they were short on staff on the day we dined, bartenders did double-duty as waiters and the service was better than most we have had in years, on par with Morton's. Food was great too.

      My husband and brother had the specialities. Both were horrible, The cheese on my husbands steak tasted as if it was spoiled. The flavor was on everything, you couldn't even scrape it off. The chef / and or manager was rude. there was only one waitress that knew what she was doing. and we never got our side dishes. the couple seated near us never got their dinners and were just told to leave because they were making a show. the chef chased them out to ay for their drinks and caught up with them in the bar. A shouting match occurred as we were walking thru...so no. I would never recommend Oyster based on food and service.

      The only nice thing is that it was very quiet. The food was fair at best. I opted for one of the specials a veal dish and the veal was quite poor quality. My wifes lobster bisque, while it did have large chunks of lobster as advertised, was so salty that she couldnt even finish it. They were training a new server as well and the trainer obviously left her to her own devices far too often. They didnt even bring a pen with the check after paying with a credit card and I had to go scavenge one from the hotel desk. While not from Wilkes Barre and was in town for an event, if I ever am back, I will not visit again. The ambiance is a little dated and creepy too. Definitely not worth the price.
