    New England clam chowder soup is delicious. The atmosphere is so different that that is an attraction in itself...

    Swung by for a quick lunch, the tuna burger and the ipswitch sandwich were delicious and definitely try a few oysters!

    New England chowder was so good, as well as grilled calamari! We asked for mix of oysters and it was delicious! Service is quick and the entire experience is very pleasant.

    Oysters, but some are really fresh and some have been on ice longer than I like. The clam chowder is great. The clams casino my favorite dessert (It usually comes last.).

    The Oyster Bar, a subterranean paradise of fresh bivalves and stiff martinis.

    Bar side is very casual and friendly. Don't bother to drop by for oyster snack!

    The price doesn't match the quality. (I tried oysters Rockefeller and dessert, didn't like both). Plus the staff wasn't really amiable, as I expected from other reviews

    It’s one of the only restaurants in NYC, and one of a few in the US, that's owned entirely by its employees via an Employee Stock Ownership Program (ESOP). WORKERS UNITE!

    Can be in and out in 10 minutes if you want the chowder. Or stay a while for oysters, fried fish sandwich and a few beers. Counter seating first-come, first served.

    Every single dishe was delicious. Lobster increable fresh. Norway salmon tasteful as the tuna and salad. The Oyster deserve five stars by far. The dessert ok, not memorable. Nice place to discover NYC

    It is a seafood restaurant. It opened along with the terminal itself in 1913 and has been in business ever since. In 2016, Zagats gave it a food rating of 22/30, meaning Very Good To Excellent.

    Happy hour $1.25 oysters (Very good) and 1/2 price drinks (not quite bad, surprisingly) is what you sometimes need in this city.

    Solid array of choices, constantly updated on the board as per availability. Service a little snotty but ... Sit at the bar and revel in the experience.

    A Manhattan institution, this place is the perfect spot to impress a date with your New York-ing skills. After you eat, grab a couple tall boys in brown bags and sit on the steps and people watch.

    Tell all your Boston transplant friends to give up their white paste-soup and head to Grand Central Oyster Bar, set of many a contemporary literary scene for a retro gone trendy-chic vibe. Read more

    History lesson: This tomatoey version is nothing like the creamy New England-style chowder, but it’s been served in Grand Central Station for nearly 100 years. Read more

    Bloody Mary shooters are absolutely the must. Bouillabaisse has a satisfying amount of saffron in it, oysters are great and surprisingly tasty with a drop of horseradish.
