Reservation and Seating Policies

The Oyster Loft is a reservation driven restaurant, however we welcome walk-ins on a first come, first serve basis. Upon arrival, please check in with our host to be seated or placed upon our nightly wait list. Reservations are accepted by phone and through

For phone reservations, please leave a message and we will return your call after 4pm, to confirm your reservation. Reservation requests left on the answering machine are honored in the order they are received. Please clearly state name, number of guests, date requested and especially your telephone number. Reservation requests left on the machine are not formalized until you receive a confirmation phone call.

For all reservations, we do our best to accommodate “patio” table requests but cannot guarantee a specific table.

Large Party Reservation Policy

A credit card is required to secure a reservation for parties of 6 or more. We understand that plans change. However, if you do not inform us of your need to cancel 24 hours in advance, we are not able to recommit the table. Failure to honor or cancel a reservation will result in a charge of $10 per person cancellation fee. It is not our intention to charge you, however, a phone call only takes a moment. Kindly honor our commitment to each other.

Late Arrival

Parties that are late for their reservation are given a 10 minute grace period.  Being over 10 minutes late with no contact will void your reservation.  If you are running late, we urge you to call us so we can make our best effort to accommodate you and your party.
