We are a sharing family so I tried a lot of things! The lobster stew was to die for!! Crab soup was excellent, kind of like a beef stew which I found unusually delicious. Crab cake was good but not the best in town. Calamari was outstanding! Service was spot on. Highly recommend and will come back next time in... More

I thought I'd had the best oysters out there after living in Boston; well, I found some to top that! What an amazing menu - both drinks and food! I feel like I truly got a taste of Baltimore!

The food is always amazing. The oysters are so good and fresh. I've eaten plenty of oysters here and never had a problem. I must say their dessert chef is out of this world. They make up delicious desserts I've never even heard of. Soooo yummy. My favorite restaurant.

After reading such great reviews of this restaurant I knew that this had to be one of our stops when we were visiting Baltimore. We had a tough time getting a reservation, but kept calling back to see if there were any cancellations and luckily we were able to get in! The restaurant is in such a nice part of... More

We dined at an outside table which gave a glimpse of the eclectic nature of the neighborhood. Somewhat more colorful than we would have liked...but it was fleet week. That said, the food was great, as was the service. The lobster roll was better than most in Maine!

This is a great place for oysters. The lobster roll is also fantastic. We also tried risotto with scallops that was to die for. I believe the risotto is seasonal because it wasn't there the second time. We did not try any desserts. .

If you love seafood this is the spot for you. I'm originally from New England and always searching for fresh seafood. It's not a fancy spot but the food is well prepared and delicious. If you love oysters and whole clams make TSOH one of your stops.

It took about a month and a half to get in. First we tried a walk in, but the wait was going to be too long, for they were booked for reservations. The wait was worth it. It was,a nice experience our waiter Matt was very nice and helpful. The staff was very nice from the hostess to the servers.... More

When we got there, we remembered eating there several years ago. We were NOT disappointed! I had the lobster roll and WOW. Better than what I had in Newport, RI (just a month ago) fresh off the boat. I didn't even add the hot butter. Staff was welcoming and answered all our questions. Its a must try eatery.

Our first Saturday in Baltimore we pitched up here around lunch time and were lucky enough to grab a seat at the bar. The food was outstanding, and the beers and cocktails just as good. It's not a cheap eat, but the experience and friendliness of the staff made the price harder to swallow. I had the lobster Mac 'n... More
