FRESH, LOCAL, HONEST FOOD
I opened The River Oyster Bar fifteen years ago with the idea of creating a local bistro that serves high-quality oysters and seafood in a comfortable setting with friendly knowledgeable service. Till this day we go to great lengths, working with several purveyors, fishermen and farmers to source the finest sustainable, local when possible seafood available, we purchase only whole fresh fish and butcher in-house, this allows us to maintain the highest quality. Our oysters are flown in from all over the United States in many cases directly from the farm where they are raised in pristine waters, tagged with the harvest area and date to ensure the highest quality and safety.
We continuously educate our staff so that they can speak to our guests about our cuisine, wine, and spirits in an informative manner. If oysters and seafood is not your thing, don’t fret, we put as much effort into our non-seafood cuisine. We are always looking for local foods, from farms in Homestead to Central and North Florida, whether it is grass-fed Florida beef, organic chickens, heirloom tomatoes and honey from Homestead, microgreens from Hollywood, local shrimp from Cape Canaveral and stone crabs from the Florida Keys, quality ingredients is what always takes precedence at The River Oyster Bar.
