According to the website, Casey Moore’s Oyster House in Tempe makes the list as one of the most haunted bars and restaurants in America.

After traversing our great nation in search of the spookiest saloons and most frightening food stops, Travel and Leisure had this to say about one of Tempe’s oldest haunts (no pun intended).

Arizona might be the last place you’d expect to find a restaurant specializing in oysters, but Casey Moore’s Oyster House draws crowds for its elevated pub fare and, of course, oysters Rockefeller. Before this was a hip Irish pub, it was the home of William and Mary Moeur, built in 1910. After the couple died (inside its walls, of course) it had a brief stint as a bordello. The souls of those who passed here still cling to the walls. Forks fly off tables, a black-haired woman wanders the kitchen, and the Moeurs continue to dance together upstairs.

If the stories can be believed, anticipate your next visit to Casey Moore’s Oyster House to be accompanied by an uninvited guest or two.

We want to hear from you.
