Ferris’ Oyster Bar & Grill opened its doors on the 4th of February, 1991. Its original name was Ferris’ Oyster and Burger Bar Restaurant. This name embodied the simplicity of their early menu: a focus on oysters and simple grill food. Although this proved to be popular, it was soon discovered that that was not enough. Ferris’ menu has greatly expanded and consequently, a name change seemed appropriate. Today, Ferris’ Grill (as the main floor is called), features a diverse array of fine foods, ranging from burgers, to pastas & fresh seafood, and of course, oysters!

On October 13, 2005, Ferris’ opened “the Upstairs Seafood & Oyster Bar.” where a slightly more upscale menu features fresh oysters, shellfish, local seafood & steaks, served in a beautiful room featuring brick walls, rustic wood floors & comfortable banquette seating.

On June 12th, 2014, the restaurant expanded again, this time growing sideways, to create an extension of the upstairs known as“Perro Negro”(black dog in Spanish). An intimate space featuring Spanish
tapas, great cocktails, wine & local craft beer. Perro Negro is also available for private rental seven nights a week.
