Raw Oysters!!! Its a an Oyster Bar Dummy. Any Questions?

I have tried Raw Oyster all over the Tampa Bay area and the U.S. for that matter. They have the freshest, cleanest, most flavorful oysters. The Oysters come in fresh daily from Franklin Co. Florida. Their Mignonette sauce is great.

Doubt I'll go back

The waitress handled our large party pretty well.
Watch out for the house salad as it is overloaded with bits of onions - it was dark in our corner & I only found out when I consumed a mouthful of salad - YIKES! My $27 blackened ribeye was very tasty but over-cooked. I like my steaks medium rare & this one was very medium, almost medium well. I do not send food back! Good veggies & mashed potatoes.
My drink was a good pour of Belvedere Vodka.
All was well until the end. We were not asked if there was anything else we wanted/needed - Here's your hat, what's your hurry... Am I still here??? I tried to get Liz's (waitress) attention 3 times to order a coffee & dessert to no avail, simply ignored. Paid the bill and we went to the bar to get it there... tick tock tick tock... Are we invisible??? Really bizarre as there are plenty of people working and I even made eye contact with the Mgr/Owner? twice. He was oblivious along with everyone else.
Got a great latte at Starbucks sans dessert and we met a great human being while walking down the street.
Plenty of other places to go that treat us better and offer better value.

Not quite an Oyster Bar.

Disappointed. First concern of evening was watching the bartender place her fingers INSIDE my wine glass while bringing it down from the overhead. Careless and gross. I can only hope she washes her hands, a lot ....Expected to find more seafood on menu, especially oysters. A handful of various oysters-on-the-halfshell apps and a fried oyster dinner (which our server neglected to mention they were out of until I had ordered-huh? How can an Oyster Bar be out of fried oysters?) Had hoped to order a half peck of steamed oysters as you typically find at other ""Oyster bars"", but nothing like that at this restaurant. Decided on the Ahi which was average at best. The tuna was very thin and mealy in texture. My husband ordered the Oscar Filet Mignon special. Again just average, and at nearly $40 not a good value for the money. Both entrees were warm not hot and the accompanying mashed potatoes were lukewarm. However, the caesar salad and bread with parmesan olive oil dip were fantastic. Server was friendly, but didn't seem very knowledgeable. (Questions about items on menu were met with a blank look.) Probably should have spoken with management but it just didn't seem to be worth the effort.
