Great drinks, good food and nice atmosphere. Highly recommend the steak and the shrimp & grits. It’s specialty is raw oysters,which I don’t eat and it is still one of my favorite place! That should tell you something.

Oysters + beignets + make-your-own Bloody Mary bar. Can’t say much more. Awesome food in a fun environment. On the bucket list for any Pittsburgher or visitor to the ‘burgh.

Seven of us tried lots of different items. Oyster po boy was very good. Both the chargrilled oysters and steak had an aftertaste of fuel like starter fluid. Raw oysters were good. Special cornbread was very good.

Really liked this place. I started with fried green tomatoes. They were served with a pimento cheese spread and slaw. We got 5 large tomato slices - perfect for sharing. I also had a grapefruit wheat beer which was very refreshing. My friend got 6...More

Good service and fun atmosphere. Good variety of mushrooms and great price for happy hour. Love soft shells on a sandwich but really too much sandwich both bun and veges. Go with MD style on plain white bread! Really. Good drinks, too

This restaurant reminds me of dining on the ocean in South Carolina where I lived before Pittsburgh. The atmosphere on a nice warm sunny day is amazing. You can sit outside on a bar stool and watch all of the action in east liberty. It’s...More

Muddy Waters Oyster Bar is about shucking, peeling, and crackin' the finest shellfish America has to offer and cookin' up the best Cajun food this side of Mississipi. Po Boys', Gumbo, Jazz and blues that's how we get down round here. Bourbon, Beer, and Champagne flow like three rivers in this bar. Get on down to the east end, slurp down a dozen, crack a few cold ones and laissez le bon temps rouler!!
