After reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, we followed the recommendations and past on Phillips and made a reservation for the Oyster House. The hostess staff was very polite and helpful. They made sure we had enought time (two hours between seatings!) to enjoy our dining experience. We were advised how difficult parking is in Fells Point, and took the hostess suggestion to take a cab into the area. (GREAT SUGGESTION! )Arrived for dinner right at appointed time and our party of five was seated on the second floor. A great choice as the first floor seemed very noisey and rather crowded. The table was set with linen and then covered with brown, butcher paper topping the table. This is a neat idea as it catches everything from small seafood shells to small spills and allows for doodling and business plans to be playout out on the table top. ( also watched tic-tac-toe game at next table while they waited for the enxt food servings with small kids). An incredible menu can be found online at the oyster house web site ( look before you go) and our server was well versed in both the nightly specials and the preparation of each entree. We started with table shared apps of fried Calamari served with a spicy style dipping sauce and PEI Mussels in a white wine, garlic broth. Both were excellent. A cup of Oyster Stew was served. The broth was very light (too light) and the oysters were clean and plentiful, but was not vibrant enough to be ordered again on the next visit. Two members of our party shared the "Lord Baltimore" seafood feast. Two 1/2 lobster tails, a dozen various oysters, colossal shrimp and four large stone crab claws served with a varied of unique and classic sauces made this a hit! ($65) Another member of our party dined on The famous "crab cake" was seved in a small iron skillet. A nice taste but not the best ever. I would retry entree this again next visit. A nightly special of flounder prepared in a chef's choice was above average. Dessert's selected were blueberry cobbler topped with ice cream and banana's fosters served over nutella filed crepes. Both earned only average marks. With 2 drinks each (10 total) drinks, 2 apps, 4 dinners and 2 desserts the bill reached $262. for an average with tip of $60/person. Yes, it took two hours( although it did not seem like it at all) and yes we will return tp this location again.
