“Always consistent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I've been going to the Oyster House since they opened. The quality of the food, the friendliness and professionalism of the staff is stellar!
I always recommend this as a must do to visitors.

“Amazing crab cakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2013

The crab cakes are some of the best around. They have no "filling," so it's just bread crumbs and egg to make them stick together. They also have specialty beers on tap, so it's a winner.

“October Oyster Treat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Very nice selection of fresh oysters and fine beers on tap. IPA is nice and crisp and a good pair with the oysters. Not crowded at all in the afternoon.

“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

Great specials from 3-5pm at the bar-area-only happy hour. Terrific prices on drinks and food (definitely get the steamed shrimp, steamed oysters and clams, and buffalo shrimp!) Plus, the staff is super friendly. However, during the summer months, you'll need to get there before 3pm, as a line forms.
