Main Street Oyster House is a new incarnation of an old location in downtown Bel Air, Maryland, and it is has a winning formula - good food and a fun atmosphere. They specialize in oysters - raw, grilled, in a stew, breaded and fried - a Bubba Gump of oysters. We enjoyed the grilled ones that included a nightly special that had quite a kick. We thought the grilled oysters were the best we've had this side of New Orleans. The fried ones were excellent, too - lightly breaded and deep fried but light not greasy. We also had a lobster pot pie which included lobster and veggies in a creamy sauce covered with pastry. Very nice. There's an adequate wine list and lots of beer choices at the bar. The bar was hopping with a comedian coming for a 9:00 PM performance. It's hard to rate tavern food excellent, i think that's reserved for fine dining, but the food, drinks and atmosphere at Main Street Oyster House were a great choice for a Friday night out.
