Scott's Oyster Bar

It all started with Scott Mitchell’s love of the sea. This passionate fisherman who grew up in Houston decided Amarillo needed a place for taste-of-the-Texas-gulf seafood. Opening Scott’s Oyster Bar “with basically nothing” in May, 1989, he used what he learned from studying hotel and restaurant management at Texas Tech and decided from the start to serve only seafood. No hamburgers, no chicken-fried steak. Scott believes in doing one thing simply and doing it as well as he can, and his seaside-style shack is no exception. The walls are plastered with photos from his own fishing adventures, which seafood lovers can enjoy with their fresh (never frozen) oysters, shrimp, catfish and crab. The menu is simple and honest, and that means your neighborhood oyster bar is the place to grab a beer with your friends on a warm summer night.
