I was visiting a friend in Greenwich and craved the type of fresh seafood that is scarce in Tucson, AZ. We had taken a taxi shopping, and asked the driver to suggest a restaurant nearby. Without hesitation he said The Oyster House on Elm St. We took his advice and so glad we did. The deep fried, whole belly clams... More

Fun atmosphere and great food. What more could you want? It's a fish restaurant but I enjoy their hamburger and steak.

Haven't been to Elm Street in a few months, forgot how good the service was. Friendly and very attentive without making me feel uncomfortable. The food was as good as ever, fried oysters were plump and very tasty start. Tuna tacos were spot on, fresh and the flavor came through. Grilled asparagus and a tuna melt made for a large... More

Love sitting at the bar on a Sunday for their brunch - Great wines and seafood. Especially love the buffalo shrimp and sesame seared tuna. Delicious!

Of interest is the cold lobster roll..but this time I had it hot. I prefer their cold presentation. I found the scallop appetizer with green tomatoes charming and more favorable than expected with the cornmeal battering. It redefined my green tomato experience with a more refined presentation complimented with scallops. I would definitely have the appetizer again!

When I went it was unlimited budget on our client. We toured the world with the best oysters around. This is one the best oyster houses I have ever been to, simply based on variety.

The service was not great. They overlooked which did not make me happy. They were very busy chatting with the table next to us.

The blackened fish tacos were great! You couldn't pick them up but tasty with a fork. The blackening was done perfectly. 3 kinds of fish made for a nice blend. Abdul was a great knowledgeable server. We took an additional order of clam chowder hme for dinner!

My wife and I went here on a Monday night for dinner on our anniversary. We reserved a table online and got seated as soon as we arrived. The restaurant is in an older building and the dining area just felt dated. It was a little musty and humid. We saw several flies in the dining area and while we... More
