Such as shame this place closed. It's was a super strange combination of old Valley dive combined with expensive seafood dishes. The place was not nice inside, so its no wonder its shutting down, but still, that was part of the charm.

I've been going to this place for 20 years, and I'm only 40. First time I went there I only had money for a beer but the smell of pasta and fresh garlic drove me crazy. I sat in front of the chef and watched as he whipped up amazing dishes. As time went on I went there once a month and have tried almost everything on the menu. My favorite is the "Stuffed Calamari"... amazing. Like a seafood omelet full of shrimp and other seafoods but with a sauteed flavor I've never had. My next favorite is the Oyster Po-Boy. Huge oysters, delicious. When they have it for lunch, I have the Sand dabs... Once again, I don't know what they cook it in but it's one of a kind. Cool, old style atmosphere, just cool.

When you have a special event in a restaurant, it may be important to put up signs so non-invited customers don't have to spend ten minutes finding parking and then walking to your venue, seating yourself, only to have some non-employee say rudely, "I'm sorry, this is a private party for our show..." Oyster House is over-priced to begin with. Good Riddance. You messed up. Never again.

It's a classy place, not expensive, friendly service. Go on certain weeknights if you want a quiet drink, or check out the specialty dinners they do for a delicious and affordable seafood meal. Be prepared -- it's old school.
07/07/2006 - Best oysters, and best of the SF Valley
Truly a step back in time to what the SF Valley is all about. If you're one of the people who enjoys valley hot spots like Senor Fred's, Cafe Cordial, or that crappy sushi bar on coldwater/ventura, then this is NOT the place for you. The Oyster House is a step into the valley's rich past. The decor, the gentry, and the vibe is old school. A time warp in the era of the valley before it knew the yuppies, and homes were closer to 100k. Upon parking in the back lot, you enter into an outdoor bar/shack on your left. To your right reads a sign "No Tanktops after 5pm" - if you don't get that joke, get back in your car. The waitress who sat us had only a rasp left for a voice, and we sat in classic bar stools with the formica covered (fake walnut) dining table. The waitress quickly brought the miller lights, along with delicious 75 cent oyster shooters. Within minutes the owner Herb from Miami befriended us, and told us of his history of over 35 years from it's inception. The food was good, had the Salmon, the wife had the Halibut. Just like Carls Jr. has the $6 burger for $3, they have the $7.50 oyster shooter for .75 cents. They don't rush you, and make you feel like part of the crowd who seem to have been patrons for years. A woman who sat down close to us, said she was taking her parents out for their anniversary, and the palm restaurant would not be an acceptable alternative. Bottom line, if you're looking for a slice of the valley of the past.. you know the one without the meat market, snooty attitude, then the Oyster House might just be the last restaurant in the valley to go. So Elmer Dills can shove his review up his wazzoo!!!
