A Pleasant Lunchtime Surprise on the Square – Oyster Bay has good fish at a fair price. In my opinion, that's the alpha and the omega. The blackened grouper sandwich is a lunchtime staple for me, along with black beans and rice. Everything has always been fresh and flavorful.
I read the negative reviews complaining of rude staff, and I'm a little mystified. I find the servers pleasant and professional. However, I've never eaten there for dinner; I can not guess whether the atmosphere changes dramatically whent the sun goes down. Also, I haven't gone there in order to drink at the bar.
I give an unreserved four-out-of-five stars.
The Bottom Line – The crab cakes are similar to Dominick's, but smaller and high priced. The oysters are good, as is most of the food. Service is friendly and prompt, except Jake the bartender has a tendency to be judgmental regarding whether or not you appear intoxicated and will take possession of anything of yours on the bar to keep you from leaving until he deems you to be be sober enough -- for the good of the bar's reputation... however, he is an expert on this matter since he was charged with DUI and Reckless Driving on 09/08/2011.
where's the beef ya'll – I'll say my favorite phrase "This place is not for people who know good food". Small portions, big price, leaves much to be desired. Upper staff a little on the rude side.
