Before I went on vacation, there was only one review of The Oyster Creek Inn on this website, and I admit I was a little put off by it. As it turns out, the reviewer obviously had not been to this particular establishment. Either that or they have a vendetta with the place. The same goes for another review that has popped up since, and I honestly think that they are truly mistaken, and were not at this restaurant. The main attraction to the Oyster Creek Inn is its location. It is out in the middle of nowhere, in the marsh land of Leeds Point. Boaters pull up and park on the dock. The boat bar room is a big waiting area with free popcorn from a big popcorn machine. The bar is pretty cool, well-stocked and unique. Our bartender was a young girl and we enjoyed talking with her. I hadnt been to the Oyster Creek Inn in over twenty-years, and it was just as I had remembered it. It has a very retro/northern feel. We really did have a good time, but . . . there are some things that might annoy somebody. The wait time for a table can be pretty long, an hour or more on a summer weekend, but hey thats because the place is so darned popular. The food was good. It wasnt incredible or out-of-this-world. It was good. The price for a meal was average. The price wasnt good. It was average. The bottom-line is that it is a neat place, in a neat location, with good food at a usual price, and the ambiance is cool. Furthermore, its a pretty big place and it gets really crowded, especially on summer weekends. Our wait staff was extremely rushed, probably more then any place else Ive been in recent years. We understood. They werent trying to be rude, but dont expect much in the way of chit-chat.
Pros: Neat place in an unusal location with a well-stocked neat "boat" bar
Cons: VERY busy with long waits and about average in food quality and price
