Welcome To

Dan & Louis Oyster Bar

Portland's oldest family-owned restaurant


Thank you for the continued support, memories, and generosity throughout the years, during the pandemic, and as we re-opened Dan & Louis Oyster Bar this summer. As of June 30, 2021, COVID-19 state restrictions have been lifted, and we are pleased to share that we are now offering full capacity dining inside and on the patio.

With the state restrictions lifted, this means our previous COVID-19 guidelines for guests have changed as well, meaning:

  • Masks are optional and not required
  • No proof of vaccination is needed
  • Bartop seating is available again

The health and safety of our guests will always be a top priority for our team. We will continue to keep the tables spaced 6-feet apart to maintain an extra layer of safety. We are not opening the front counter (oyster counter) seating or kitchen top seating at this time.

HOURS: We are open Sunday, Monday, and Thursday from noon to 9 pm, and Friday and Saturday from noon to 10 pm. We will be closed on Tuesday and Wednesday, and our hours are subject to change.

We look forward to shucking oysters for you soon! Stay safe, healthy, and positive.
