City Oyster is THE one of the very best happy hour cool spots in Delray. Oysters and drinks during happy hour are hard to beat. We rarely consider it for dinner but probably should. Happy Hour for certain!

City Oyster is our "go-to" restaurant when we hit The Avenue with out of town guests. You know you will get a good meal and good service and plenty of outside seating. Great year round spot. Wonderful for both Lunch and Dinner

Stopped in for a cocktail and an appetizer before having a big meal later. Our waiter, Kevin, was funny, professional and entertaining. The Mojitos were great, and a Lump Crab Cocktail was a perfect afternoon break. We will absolutely go there again.

Casual dress is fine, including shorts. Almost every restaurant in Downtown Delray Beach is casual since it is a Beach town.
