    The Brooklyn chowder is something of a cross between the creamy New England favorite and Manhattan's tomato-based counterpart and is served with corn nuts and homemade goldfish and oyster crackers. Read more

    Solid food here all around. My favorites were the Brooklyn Clam Chowder, Frisee Salad w/ Fried Oysters, and (of course) OYSTERS! xx InAHalfShell.com

    Chicken liver pâté is a must. Black bass & risotto is great. Short rib is tasty. Mussels are great to share. Foursquare special is ONLY honored at the bar. Smh. They could be a little flexible...

    Lobster BLT by far is the best with the buttery bread. The juice just flow down your hands once you take a first bite.

    Was just ok. Wasn't all that impressed with menu- lots of heavy/fried/savory things- lots of butter and no greens/salads. Stick with oysters & wine.

    Tuna Ranchers had a very metallic fishy aftertaste and I still wonder if the Oyster Tacos actually had oysters in them. But I would come for the adorable booth seats and lighting.

    Service was attentive, friendly and informative. Oysters were delicious though one had shell fragments. Brussels sprouts were brilliant take on Caesar salad. Avoid shrimp corn dogs and fish tacos.

    Claim chowder is delicious, shrimp corn dogs are, as well. The girls are nice, but one of the guys is a condescending ass. Don't come when they're understaffed - guessing mostly on snow days.
