Good Oysters provided by Elm Street Oyster House. Good Wine provided by Elm Street. Most important are friends meeting for dinner at Elm Street Oyster House. The friends meet while diving and we come from three different states. We had a great meal and spend the evening catching up on each others news between our food courses. Dinner was excellent....

Great selection of fresh fish prepared any way you wish. Comfortable for families or a group of friends or a date. Very relaxed vibe but still classy. Unique for Greenwich, a great restaurant with no attitude. The raw bar is exactly what it should be, a great selection and ocean fresh. The Seafood Chili is a meal on its own... More

My family and I went to eat here. Cute place, good service. Food was good but I gave it four out of five because I was hoping for a larger selection of oysters. It's worth going and enjoying at least once to see for yourself.

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.
