We had dinner there a few times on our recent trip. Food was always good, great service, good prices. Crab cakes are a pretty good app.

Average food, poor service, not cheap I would not go back, plenty of better choices nearby. So take a look around first.

This restaurant is simple as it gets. But, it's food is not. It's excellent. I've been twice and would return. Reasonable prices. Great food. You can't beat it. Try the sautéed shrimp or clam strips.

Food was good, but smaller portions for the money. The service was good and no long wait time for seating.

Re visited the Oyster Bar on Cortez after visiting new one on Pier. The Pier one was good but did not have the same atmosphere as Cortez. Food was delicious, service great. We went 3 times during our holiday on Anna Maria. See you again next year!

We went here in my wife's birthday - very enjoyable experience, Good food, good service and a good atmosphere. Prices are very reasonable given the quality of the food. Definitely visit again when we are next in Bradenton.

This place is very popular as it is always full of people! It doesn't stop the staff from being very kind and they do a great job even with a large group. The food is great too!

When we are in Bradenton,we are always hit seafood places. We love their chowder,but always try out their daily specials. This place is very busy, so you may want to go alittle early to avoid crowds. The help are very friendly and knowledgeable on your selections. We put this place on our list for once a week.
