Established in 1991
Ferris' opened its doors on the 4th of February, 1991. Its first 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... more
Crowded clubhouse feel brings in Victoria's boho element along with students, families, and friends. While oysters are the mainstay-choose from eight options for baked alone-there are plenty of seafood cuts and meat options. Deep bowls of chicken penne soup with rice dumplings are a winter mainstay ($6.50), and the legendary Chicago-style fries are tossed with celery salt ($2.75 small, $5... more

Everything else was very good, much better than the touristy vibe would suggest. The mussels were fresh and perfectly cooked in a classic wine sauce.

Wide-ranging menu with an emphasis on fantastic seafood, along with steaks, pastas and more.
Opened in 1991, Ferris' had exposed brick and fun local artwork long before they really hit the big time. It's cool and trendy, not a bit stuffy, and more than reasonably priced. Shellfish in all its forms is the house specialty — oysters come in a variety of styles, from Texas to Thai; the cioppino is as good as any Nonna's; and the prawns are tender little morsels that defy the doggie bag.... more
