Found Thames on yelp and decided to try since we were all n downtown Baltimore. The restaurant itself has a very good vibe as the staff is very friendly and helpful. We ordered the oysters Rockefeller to start and they were great. For drinks we had probably one of the best drinks I've ordered, the Solana!! Wow, I would have... More

Escargot, lobster mac n' cheese, crab cakes, oh my! Paired with great service, it was a very good dinner. My only complaint is that the escargot was not piping hot like I usually like it but the flavor was there. Atmosphere is average, parking is hard to find but that's any downtown.

Had lunch here a few months ago and although we aren't big seafood fans, the food, service and price was great. We had a few people in our group that had some food issues and the server was great about all of the questions and checking with the kitchen for questions and all of that. Great location in Fells Point,... More

We ate lunch there on a Saturday - very busy place. The crab cakes are good but a bit too much filler. The lobster roll is delicious as are the desserts. They have a nice menu with selections that would please anyone. I would definitely go back.

Wrote this letter to the owner..months still waiting for a response. Food was excellent, but with the service and no management follow up never again will I dine at this establishment. Aug 18 to info I am writing to share my first time dining experience at the well known Thames Street Oyster House. I have heard many good reviews and... More

Nice bar atmosphere right near the water, the food was very good, the only negative was that they don't open until 11:30 and I was trying for an early lunch to get to the airport.

No wonder this oyster house was rated one of the top 21 oyster houses in the country by Thrillist's. There was a nice selection and the oysters were so fresh and delicious. Don't miss the lobster pot pie, every bite had a chunk of lobster in a creamy sauce topped with the most delicate crust. We were lucky enough to... More

Came for oysters as soon as we arrived in town for a meeting, on the recommendation of our nearby hotel. Charming little place just on the waterfront with lovely views, old brick walls, and 2 stories of seafood pleasure. We had a marvelous array of fresh oysters chosen from their 13 varieties that day, plus crab stew spiced just right,... More

My wife and I ended our date night here recently and absolutely loved it. We only got oysters and clams, but I'm sure the rest of the food there is delicious. We definitely loved the oysters, but the clams were a first for us, and we weren't sure we liked them. Nothing was wrong with them, but we'll likely stick... More
