AMAZING!

This is easily one of the best seafood restaurants I have ever been to. My wife, a born and raised New Englander, couldn't resist the Lobster Roll. To say she was impressed would be a gross understatement. It literally brought her to tears it was that good. And it wasn't just the lobster but... read more

Bustling and buzzing- great for a drink or dining. The cocktails were excellent as were the oysters. Wide range to choose from, all great. the salad was a bit overdressed but otherwise top notch

You need to make reservations at this outstanding restaurant located in Fells Point looking over looking the water. The raw bar is excellent, nice sides and great selection of wine!

Our concierge recommended Thames St. Oyster House and it was perfect. Great oysters, excellent drinks, great seafood entrees and a terrific atmosphere. We were seated on the 2nd floor and it was a great meal and terrific service. I will definitely go back!

Oysters are fantastic... ALWAYS !! But if you haven't made a reservation your NOT going to get a seat. You'll need to book a week out at least. Seating is limited !! The restaurant is centrally located near the water and parking is available right on Thames Street. Ambiance is fitting for the area. Sometimes the hostess could use a... More

Great clean restaurant in fells point! Love everything I've had here but esp the lobster roll and the bloody Mary's! Good is simple but delicious allowing the taste of the seafood to come through and not just the sauce! Service is outstanding

There are a few gems in downtown Baltimore that have a diverse crowd, completely successful seafood-centric menu and a great vibe. This is among the best. We ate int he bar area in back as the tables were reserved way in advance but even that space was successful. The wait staff is friendly and knowledgable and the oysters, lobster roll... More

We came to Thames Street Oyster House for my birthday dinner and were very impressed by the raw bar selection and the menu. We started with raw oysters, clams, and crab claws, which were fresh and delicious. Our entrees were perfectly cooked, delicious, and beautifully presented. Desert came out with a birthday sparkler! We will definitely be back.

I'm a Baltimorean and this is one of my favorite restaurants. Casual bar vibe. If you can't get a reservation, go anyway and wait for a spot at the bar. The lobster rolls compete with the best of Maine. Great raw bar.
