Apostrophe’s Are Out of Control

Note that the errant apostrophe only appears in martini’s, not in oysters. Is it that words ending in vowels provoke more apostrophe misuse? Was someone afraid that martinis would read as martin-iss? Or is the bar inside this Washington, D.C. McCormick & Schmick’s restaurant called “Martini’s”?
