We’re a small restaurant on the corner of Adelaide and Water St. in downtown St. John’s. We carry a large selection of oysters from across Canada and our menu focuses on seafood and fun, vibrant small plates. We have a constantly rotating selection of craft beer and wines and an ever evolving cocktail list. Some call us loud, but we prefer lively!

We welcome requests for bookings at adelaideoysterbookings@gmail.com. We take two groups of 6+ Sunday through Saturday. E-mail bookings are preferred but also feel free to call us at 709-722-7222. We keep a wait list each night, so if we cannot accommodate your booking you are welcome to come down and see us!

Great service! Wasn’t impressed by the actual oysters (usually love them)

The drinks were made wonderfully and the rest of the food was great!

Restaurant was great will come again!

Would double check on bathroom garbages though. (overflowing when I went in)

Too loud to talk! While oysters are good the rest of the menu is quite limited. The place is OK for a young crowd to have a beer and an oyster.

Everything was great about this experience at The Adelaide Oyster House. This restaurant was the perfect choice for our date night. It was small, cute. Great food and service topped it all off. We thoroughly enjoyed it. The only bother was that we were seated right under the speaker, which at times could be a little overbearing. Maybe adding a couple of speakers around and turning down the volume would be a bit more pleasant. We enjoyed ourselves nonetheless.
