The Oyster Society

About the Restaurant

The Oyster Society has a cool Jazz Age vibe that hearkens back to the good ol’ days. Run by the Carvelli family, guests here are treated to a high-end, Great Gatsby-eqsue evening of fine dining. The family has some seriously high standards when it comes to the freshness of their ingredients and the service provided to their patrons.


The Carvelli family opened The Oyster Society in late 2017, and the restaurant took right off. They had experienced so much success with their other restaurants (DaVinci’s, which opened in 1996 and Marco Prime Steaks and Seafood, which opened in 2013) that it only seemed natural to create a fine dining restaurant centered around oysters.

The Oyster Society’s main menu looks like it was ripped right from a 1920’s high-end restaurant. You can order Stacks to Share (like the New Orleans Hot Pot) or from The Oyster & Raw Bar, which lets you choose from a Chef’s Dozen of four varieties of oysters (three per variety) or a Society Sushi Platter. If that doesn’t appeal to your palette, try The Funky Buddha from the Sushi Bar or the Roasted Chicken from the Chef’s Specialties List.

Make sure you grab something delicious to drink! You can choose from The Classics, a lovely list of cocktails, seasonal drinks, champagne, aromatic whites, draft beers, and more. The drink list is just as impressive as the food menu.

General Information

The restaurant is located on South Collier Blvd. and is open daily from 4:30 p.m. until close. You can call them to make reservations or do so from their website.
