Summary

Every time we've been tempted to go to the Oyster Bar, we're scared off by the prices and tempted back to all-you-can-eat lunch sushi. The sushi bar is good, and the $16 lunch buffet is a fine value for very good sushi. It can be a little crowded on a busy day, so keep that in mind. Summary Review: B+

Food

The sushi is very good, with generous portions, and they'll keep serving you until you roll out of there. Every time we've been tempted to go to the Oyster Bar, we're scared off by the prices and tempted back to all-you-can-eat lunch sushi. Food Review: B+

Atmosphere

The Sushi Bar is the sit-at-the-bar area, and the Oyster Bar is the table service area. Both menus are located on the elevated walkway. Seating can be tight due to limited floorspace, and the waiting area is standing in the middle of the main walkway. It's kinda fun to watch out over S. Virginia street when you're eating, though. Atmosphere Review: B-

Service

The Sushi Bar folks are friendly and always kept the sushi plates full. Better drink service would be nice, but that's a minor detail. Service Review: B+

Value

At $16 for a lunch all-you-can-eat sushi, it's not inexpensive. The sushi is always tasty and generous, and we always eat too much. And we worry when sushi is TOO cheap, ya know? The Oyster Bar is also on the expensive side, so look at a menu before you sit down. Dinner at the sushi bar jumps up to $23, but we'll cut some slack on that. Maybe we're just suckers for good sushi. Value Review: B+
