I've been to the Oyster bar several times and have always come away impressed. It might not be the place you take a date to impress, but if you like good solid meals at a reasonable price it is hard to beat the Oyster bar. I'll always go there when I'm in Harlingen.

We have been eating at this Oyster Bar for many years. It is always good. We eat there at least a couple times a month. Good food. Good service.

Besides the waiter who insisted a plate cannot be altered because the management does not want it .. Then asking for the owner and she said it is not an issue at all .. The food was average and the ambience is average. It is for sure not bad although my fish had a funky smell from old white pepper... More

Decent food, friendly service and convenient to where I was staying. The staff was nice and the restaurant was very clean. Food was standard, not exceptional, but good.

The food was good, but, the service took forever just to bring a cup of soup to my grandfather and to top it off the cashier wax rude. Bad manners...despite the rudeness I might go back.

The Oyster Bar is an old favorite with our family. We come back to eat here whenever we are in town. The fresh seafood is always delicious.

It seems if they can fry it they buy it! Limited choices on the menu. Had to pull out the fact that I could simply buy a piece of fish. Had to pay an extra $1.50 for a potato instead of the standard fries. Asked for butter for my potato which I did not receive. Had to use the butter... More
