We decided to try this place out on our way home from Washington DC and it was so amazing!! Every single table and chair was taken and it was a Sunday night!! My girlfriend had oysters which she said were simply the best. She also got a crab cake for her main course, she ate everything off of her plate... More

Fells point has great places to eat and this place is wonderful. We had Oysters and Jonah Crab Claws to start, which were excellent. I had the Crab and Short Rib Soup and my dining partner had the Thames Street Seafood Salad. Both were very tasty. We shared the delicious Lobster Mac & Cheese. Service was great. Would go back...

You won't get a seat in this place unless you book 2 months in advance. It's crazy ! Yes a smaller place with limited seating but DANG !! the raw bar is excellent.

If you want oysters, and great seafood for that matter, in Charm City look no further than here. Oysters Rockefeller was superb, along with the Lobster Roll, just about as good as you are going to get. They have fries here, that are the best you will eat! You start nibbling the huge basket and in a few minutes you... More

I have no clue why this restaurant is highly rated on TA. Food is subpar and way overpriced. 3 of us had dinner and every dish had a significant problem. Fish and chips were the worst: the cod was fishy and the crust wasn't crunchy. We were there within minutes of the kitchen opening and were served COLD mushy french... More

Went here Halloween night, probably not the best night to try and have a great meal but Thames Street succeeded. Good wine list, good food and we had a great table write in the bar at the window so we could watch all the festivities outside.

When we first arrived place was really crowded and unfortunately there is not a lot of room since the place is somewhat smle. all. Not thinking on a Friday night it could be tough to get a table we initially told it would be... More

We went here for lunch on a Thursday and luckily got in before the crowd. It is not a large restaurant so you need to either make reservations or get in for lunch by 11am. The service is wonderful and the food was excellent. I had the crab cake sandwich and it was full of flavor. Staff consistently kept my... More

Place was packed on a Friday evening (I know), but I got the vibe they just burn 'em and turn 'em here. Really felt rushed. My husband got some raw oysters and he said they were good. I ordered an appitizer to split (Oysters Rockerfeller). It arrived with what looked like prepackaged grated cheese sprinkled on top of five oysters,... More

Busy and humming but not crazy loud in this row house-turned seafood house in the trendy Fells Point neighborhood. Friendly and attentive service. Try the Gulf of Maine Hake with Portuguese sausage in a spicy broth. The locals in my group raved about the crab cakes and oysters.
