Make Your Reservation Before It’s Too Late

The Drunken Oyster is certainly the perfect destination for a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner, but there is one downside – we book up quickly for this special night! We try to accommodate as many people as possible by having multiple seatings available throughout the night, but you should still make your reservations as far in advance as you can. We recommend checking our Facebook page for updates about our Valentine’s Day Dinner. We hope you can join us and we look forward to serving you and your loved one!
