    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...

    Happy hour 4-7 for $2 east coast oysters. Skip salmon tartare & crab cake but order the Clam boil in broth with Old Bay, potatoes and corn $15. Unique booth interior & decor. Recommended.

    Pulpo Flatbread! My 1st time trying octopus might continue to be the best. The food is fantastic and the service, excellent. The Kumamoto oysters, ahi tuna, mussels with rolls, oh!

    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

    Oysters is in its name, but the rest of the menu is why I eat here. Changes daily, always creative. Recent stand-outs: brussel sprouts 2 ways, seafood jambalaya w/ramp powder, spring pea shoot salad.

    Their Lobster BLT is the best thing I've had in a longtime. I believe the added sriracha aioli gives it that special something to seal the deal as "the best lobster roll" for me.

    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.

    Good appetizers, the crab cake salad was tasty. A little disappointed with the happy hour oysters, were pretty small and not savory. Got the Moon Shoal in return, and tasted better. Comfy interior.

    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.

    The grilled octopus appetizer was uh.maze.ing. A little bit pricier than John Dory but different selection of oysters and excellent small plates make it worth the occasional splurge.

    The oysters are fresh and delicious, the fish tacos are tasty and the strawberry shortcake is the best I've had.

    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.

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

    Menu printed daily, seasonal ingredients, good preparation and pres. Food tasted good though everything was a bit on heavy/rich side (I tried to order light), some balance would have been better

    Home made goldfish crackers are the best. Just order them as soon as you sit down.

    Dinner tips, oysters are fantastic, gluten free options are available , however their solutions are not always logical. Frisée salad without the oysters and no substitution?

    Angels on horseback are amazing - dates stuffed with goats cheese and fried, with a sauce that adds even more texture and flavour

    DO get the scallops and raviolo. Savory. Filling.... unctuous comes to mind. The soft egg takes it over the top! Be hungry.

    New York's best Motley Crue-themed oyster bar. Get the Nikki Sixx - half dozen oysters and a shot of Jager!

    Brussel sprouts with lamb and bacon is the best I've ever had. Amazing cocktails, too.

    $5 glasses of wine and pints of beer during happy hour. And these aren't skimpy glasses of wine either.

    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.

    The crab cakes were surprisingly my favorite dish. Super crispy, fresh, and delicious.
