Market Street Grill & Oyster Bar

10702 S. River Front Pkwy., South Jordan, 84095
801-302-2262
With by far the best and freshest selection of oysters around, Market Street is a must for any oyster lover. Six to eight oyster varieties are typically offered daily, along with an array of fresh seafood and steaks. The chilled seafood platter of Maine lobster, Alaskan king crab, and Gulf shrimp is pretty hard to resist, but so are the fried clam strips. All of the chowders and seafood stews at the Oyster Bar totally rock, but here’s a surprise: they also serve some of the best chili in town. On Mondays, from 4-6 p.m., the Oyster Bar offers 69-cent oysters and half-priced appetizers, so get there early to grab a coveted spot at the bar.

Yesterday afternoon, my wife, a friend and I were walking down Market Street returning to our car. On our right was the construction zone for the new courthouse. As we were walking, I noticed a broken construction barrier laying across the sidewalk, serving no purpose whatsoever. After stating to my companions that someone could trip over it, I tossed it over the fence, into the deserted construction area. Just then, our friend realized she had forgotten her credit card at a restaurant. My wife and I waited for her to retrieve it. It was slightly cold, so we decided to walk across the street and have a drink at Market Street Grill.

Once inside, we were greeted by the hostess and the manager, Robert. When I asked if we could sit in a bar area, he immediately refused to sell us alcohol. After my initial confusion as to what caused his rude behavior, he stated that "I'm not serving you alcohol while you throw cones over the fence." I tried to remedy the situation by calmly explaining that we were just stopping in. He still refused, and continued to be extremely rude.

Despite living in one of the most conservative states for all of my life, surprisingly, I have never really personally been treated with such judgment, prejudice and disrespect -- until yesterday. Frankly, it is the most offensive affront that I have ever experienced, and it upset my wife and me for the rest of the evening. For this poor excuse of a customer service representative, Robert, to leap to such a ridiculous conclusion about a glimpse of something he observed on the street is appalling. Furthermore, for the sake of Gastronomy's business, I hope Robert treats other patrons more rationally. Despite Market Street's success and distinguished reputation, his elitist and irrational conduct is despicable.

I will never set foot in any Gastronomy establishment again.
