Shaffer City Oyster Bar & Grill Report

Tatyana | Jun 2, 2003 12:18 PM

Had dinner there Sat. night and wanted to share what an all-around pleasant experience we had. We ordered oysters, fried calamari, caesar salad, grilled shrimp and asparagus salad, pan roasted wild ocean bass w/ lobster mashed potatoes, Pitcholine Crusted Red Snapper over oven roasted potatoes, haricots verts, and Fresh Fettuccine with lobster, roasted shallots, asparagus, and mushrooms with a truffled beurre blanc.

What really stood out were the oysters (everyone thought the quality was the best they've had in the city), the wild ocean bass and the lobster fettuccine -heavenly (which for an extra $5 my mom and I shared - a very good thing since the sauce was so rich that it would be hard for one person to finish the whole portion).

The creme brulee was absolutely wonderful as well - warm and rich.

The service was very attentive and professional and the ambiance pleasant in a casual sort of way.

It is not cheap but it didn't break the bank either(the only so-so things were the caesar salad, calamari and I was too crazy about the red-snapper - a bit bland for my taste).

We really enjoyed our meal there.
