It was fine. The service was either hot or cold. There’s an ice-appearing bucket on the table (I’d ordered mussels) and when I was 1/2 way through and had a pile of mussel shells on my plate- the waiter pointed out the bucket and said “Those are for your shells- but you do you”- which was snotty- thanks pal- if someone had mentioned that, I would’ve complied…

Everything was great except the high, uncomfortable stools. For seniors they are entirely inappropriate and difficult to navigate. The discomfort certainly detracted from the overall dining experience.

Always a great time - Fanny Bay Oyster Bar has the freshest oysters in the city, the best value and variety, and amazing service that feels local and authentic. Highly recommend the fish and chips as well - some of the best I've ever had!

Came in from out of town wanting some fresh seafood, definitely got that here. I'm not a huge oyster person but was glad to have an array of options and all were delicious. Cooked fish was some of the best I've ever had

Service was stellar, waitress was right on the money every time. We arrived during happy hour so very busy but we had great service and food came in very good time. Drinks were on the expensive side but hey, they godda make some rent money too.

The server was rude, made ordering mistakes and blamed it on us! Brought under cooked / raw food to the table and we pointed it out , his response was “is it cold?”. Suggesting we could stiff eat it! Remade and was better . No apologies. Lots of other restaurants to spend your money with friendly staff.

We were rushed out. They let us know before we were seated that they limit the time to 1 hr 45 min, which was fine. Food came out in about 20 min and bill came out 20 min later. Ordered 3 apps and 1 main, all came at the same time, although we asked to have the main later. They didn’t clear the dishes as we ate, but as soon as we had the last bite of the main, they cleaned dishes and showed up with the bill. Ruined an experience we were looking forward to.

Definitely a place for those fond of seafood dishes with a more laid back atmosphere than some places one can come to expect downtown.

Lots of menu options besides oysters, and helpful staff to pick something you would enjoy.

The batter of the fish tacos was a bit thick, and the tacos were a bit small. The rice and the seasoning of the Paella could be done a bit better too. The seafood itself was very fresh though!

No impresses with curt staff and mandatory 20% tip for ‘large gathering’ of 6 people. Broken QR link to menu (and insufficient physical menus). Good food quality but front of the house killed any desire to revisit the place.

A friend and I had a craving fo seafood, so we decided to try Fanny Bay’s. Great idea! Food was excellent and the se4vice was fantastic. Place was busy but the server made us feel comfortable and took time to tell us the specials and answered all of our questions without rushing. When our orders arrived, they looked great and tasted even better. Can’t recommend this restaurant enough.

The oysters were the only good item - every other item we ordered was surprisingly disappointing, especially the Clam Chowder.
