    Oysters and Rene's delicious cocktails galore! Come early to score a sunset view. There are seats at the bar while you wait for a table. The perfect summer hour-long getaway if you beat the crowds.

    Great place to spend the late afternoon. Cocktails and oysters are their specialty. For a refreshing bev highly recommend the Sherman's Cup.

    Frying Pan for adults. Try to skip the crowds and get a cocktail by the front, with seating.

    Rosé ALL day on this floating palace of libations and beautiful people. Sit at the bar, grab a few oysters, wash them down with a martini or rosé, and survey NYC, your domain, from a seaborne fortress Read more

    Come for a quick drink or bite with fantastic views and atmosphere on the Hudson. Super friendly service. Reservations are needed for sit-down service. Also can get a little rocky on windy days.

    Although a bit overpriced (you WILL pay for the views - which are beautiful, looking out to the Jersey City skyline)... but the oysters are well worth it (and a good wine selection to go with it)..

    Best date night of the summer. We sat at the oyster bar up the back and enjoyed 2 dozen expertly shucked east coast beauties and unobstructed sunset views across the Hudson. Magic

    Sunday funday! Delicious oysters and rose to enjoy the sun on the weekend. Sit down to enjoy yourself and try a few apps or crowd around the bar. Either way drinks and food are flowing

    We love oysters and wine and sitting in the sun, so Grand Banks is the obvious choice for summer time drinking. Located on an old schooner ship, it's got a super-cute vibe and tasty food and drinks.

    Finally made it here at end of summer. Lovely spot, especially to watch the sunset. Get some cocktails and oysters of course and just enjoy being on a boat in the middle of the madness of NYC!

    Only open in the summer starting mid-April. Enjoy being on a boat in the Hudson River! Everything is delicious here, especially the Lobster Roll. Also a great assortment of fresh oysters.

    Stumptown Coffee and quality lobster rolls with oysters. It's a small menu, but it's a good one.

    “Naked Cowboy oysters from the Long Island Sound, along with creamy, clam-shaped Kusshis from Vancouver Island, supplemented several truly small plates.” Read more

    It, a lot. And also, so many douchey guys in Ray Bans. We sat at the bar which was fine but I don't think I'd venture to eat or do more than a couple of drinks when it's crowded.

    Fabulous if you get here at 4pm when they open. By 5pm the place is jammed. Boat is rocky so if you get seasick may not be for you

    This Hudson river oyster bar is fantastic. Expect it to be packed, so try visiting during the day (opens at noon on weekends).

    This is the best place in the city for a romantic and sexy place to have oysters at sunset. I can't wait to take my wife on Saturday

    A great place for a date. The drinks are fantastic. The oysters and lobster roll are top notch. The view isn't bad either 👍🏻

    Amazing view, venue and delicious food! Must try the crudo, squash blossom and baked oysters - food is really good as are the cocktails and it's worth the money.

    Note lines and extra wait times on the weekends, due to the smaller size of the space. On a boat, the views are gorgeous..make sure to try the lobster rolls!

    Oysters you don't often see on the menu accompany your gentle drift on the water with a clear view of Ms. Liberty herself. Warning: it may take a few minutes to get your sea legs.

    What's better than patio drinking? Boat drinking. Board this seasonal vessel and toss back oysters with cocktails before moving on to lobster rolls and beer. Read more

    Where has this place been all of my life. An amazing faux escape from Manhattan for lunch. The lobster roll is the only thing to order, of course!

    Cool breeze off the Hudson, good selection of beer and wine but due to some agmt w the park can only serve the cocktails on the menu.

    Really fun place to brunch. The boat is docked but you get a nice breeze and clear view of the Hudson River! Get the oysters and some cocktails.

    Go for a glass of rosè on the gorgeous deck but skip the wait for dinner. The line may look intimidating on a warm summer night but moves very quickly, stick it out.

    It's a smaller boat than the frying pan so expect some rougher seas than you're used to. That, or you've had too much.

    Love this spot!!! Go on weekday nights for a drink. Weekends are madness and not much to say about the food menu so just go for a drink on a weekday.

    I mean, it's probably the best boat that you can sit in and have a drink on the Hudson while tethered to a pier. Aside from this place, always practice safe boating.

    Awesome location/view/venue but a tad overpriced. You can get better oysters elsewhere as well. A lot of fun though despite the long waits.
