Chef Will Gilson and the team behind Puritan & Company are thrilled to introduce you to Puritan Oyster Bar! We offer limited reservations, but always hold space for walk-ins! The space is a bit more casual than our sister restaurant, with a focus on fresh seafood and an incredible cocktail program.

    This was our first time at Tinned Fish Tuesday. It was fun to have other menu options! The tinned octopus, served with herb butter, pickled veggies and GF crackers was delicious. Great service and cocktails as usual!

    Can’t beat 50% off fresh oysters before 6pm with a selection that changes daily. Tasty cocktails and excellent service!

    Some of the best oysters we’ve eaten. Half off before 6 pm is such a deal and the mignonette sauces were so good, especially the cucumber one. Ended up having 2 dozen oysters for the 2 of us. We were 2 and the server was so kind to tell us we were ordering too much! We pared it down and it was perfect. Caviar cones, Kampachi crudo, stuffies croquettes, the fluffiest Parker house rolls and a lobster roll. They actually mistakenly made a hot lobster roll when we ordered a cold mayo one so we took the hot one home. The only miss was the Parker house bread pudding since it was dry.

    From the moment we sat down we knew we were in good hands with Kyle. He was so personable and a complete pro. He guided us through the food choices, which were all great! You can get good food and wine anywhere but it’s the service that will make it a memorable experience. Ours was exactly that!

    Everything was top notch. The oysters were fresh and delicious, the plates we ordered were also amazing (highly recommend the scallop crudo)! Our server was so nice and even made us an off menu dessert drink toward the end!
