Once a popular Florida chain. The New England Oyster House apparently still isn’t around, but in the 1960s and 1970s, they had locations all over South Florida.

    I actually worked at the New England Oyster House in Sarasota during the early 1970′s during the summer. I was a great atmosphere. Loved it.

    It was great food, and a great atmosphere in West Palm Beach. But most especially ~~ The Grogs~~ don’t remember what they were made of, but as newly weds in the 70′s, we enjoyed many evenings at The New England Oyster House.

    Worked at the homestead location in 1980 as a waitress. Fun times! Piña coladas in pineapples! Then moved to coral gables location as head hostess. Met great peeps! Only bad memory was being robbed at the cash register with a gun 2 feet from my chest at the cash register. I’ll never forget that guy backing down the entry and holding my breath until he got out the door!

Got something to say?
