One of my favorite restaurants in Royal Oak is Tom’s Oyster Bar. To state the obvious, they are known for their oysters, and seafood. They always have such delicious specials to choose from. We went early so it was a bit empty. I never mind that there though. Its always comfortable sitting in their wood paneled dining room, visually perusing all the seascape, fish and boating art hanging from the mahogany walls.
I was not in the mood for oysters that day. Even though they have an amazing selection that I have had on many occasions. You can see their vast menu here.
I had the buffalo shrimp salad. The shrimp were huge and perfectly cooked. The creamy salad dressing a perfect compliment to the spicy shrimp. The only thing is I wish it was less hot sauce, since the delicate flavor of the shrimp was overwhelmed.
The hubby had the Shrimp Pasta Alfredo I believe. He loved it. Creamy and perfectly satisfying. Something that soothes the soul. His one qualm was there was way too much sauce, and the richness made it too hard to finish the plate.
For dessert, we had the Key Lime Pie. I usually hate pies (the weirdo I am), because my dislike for pie crust. But this one was made with a graham crust. It was sweet, tart, creamy and the perfect light bite.
I’m sure we will be in again, and maybe next time I will have some pictures of their amazing oysters for you.
Have you been to Tom’s Oyster Bar? I know they have a few other locations, one location being in Detroit. You should definitely stop by. Especially now that their patio will be open. I can’t wait to go again. I’m obsessed with seafood and can’t go too long without it.
