Tempest was an amazing restaurant. The oysters were delicious and a great deal during their Happy Hour. This is a pricey... location but you certainly get your money's worth of delicious seafood. Appetizers were well portioned and had a high variety.The Cesar Salad was an unexpected standout due to tasty dressing and a good balance between the ingredients. Both the swordfishand red snapper were perfectly cooked. Definitely would want to return for a special occasion or to sit by the bar. Theatmosphere is a mix of classy and rugged pier so not overly formal. Read more

The happy hour specials were fantastic and the oyster selection was truly amazing considering Midwest location. I’ll be back!... Grab the Bosus if you can. The most interesting oyster I’ve ever had. Read more

This place is an awesome, unique, sheek while non pretentious, amazing place to go for Oysters. It's one of our favorites for... special occasion happy hours! Their house cocktails are delicious, and they even have a couple "mocktails" that are intentionaland great to drink as well. Definitely check it out! Read more
