The Cholla Bay Oyster House has gradually evolved since it’s opening in 2016. Owner John Makarchuk started with a small, one-story restaurant and patio with a great view of Cholla Bay and a tapas-style menu.

The patio grew, a second-story sports bar area was added and the menu expanded to include steaks, seafood dinners and pasta dishes.

Last month he completed an addition which expanded the restaurant. They now offer barbecue, pizza and ice cream from an adjacent building that shares the seating area and bar service.

The Oyster House has always had a full bar and no limit to the brand of beer you can order. Last month they announced that you can now enjoy happy hour every day from 4-6 with $2 beers, discounts on drinks and food specials.

All the things you’ve loved about the Oyster House are still there: Fresh oysters, the best clams in Peñasco, shrimp cocktail, crab cakes, clam chowder, etc.; watching the moon rise over the bay as you enjoy a refreshing beverage on the patio; catching your favorite sporting event in upstairs, air-conditioned sports bar; and the friendly staff.

Now you can dive into a big plate of barbecued ribs, share a pizza and top it all off with a hand-dipped ice cream cone or sundae.

To reach the Oyster House (Barbeque, Pizza and Ice Cream), head out to Cholla Bay, the restaurant is on the right and extra parking is available on the beach road.
