Fort Oak

View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Fort Oak is where to go for expertly charred seafood dishes cooked over a Santa Maria-style wood-fired grill. The space used to be a Ford dealership, but now there’s a horseshoe-shaped bar and a chef’s table instead of a bunch of F-150s. 

It’s a great spot for almost anything, whether that’s a solo round of cocktails (including low-abv options) and $1 oysters at Happy Hour, a date night in the indoor-outdoor dining room, or a group dinner fueled by a giant seafood tower of oysters, lobster tiradito, and scallop aguachile. Stay for desserts like the citrus ice cream pie, and consider checking out the cash-only dive and karaoke bar The Lamplighter that’s just a five-minute walk away.
