    In business over 100 years, and a beautiful historic space. A true NYC institution and must do for seafood lovers.

    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

    The oyster pan roast is made with clam juice, Worcestershire sauce, paprika, Heinz chili sauce, celery salt, and half & half. It contains six Blue Point oysters from Long Island Sound. 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.

    Love the vibe and food. Cocktails were too strong but not necessarily a bad thing for some. Please know this place is not for service, it's face paced.

    A haven for mollusk worshippers and harried New York commuters for more than a century, the seafood spot is still as epic as its iconic white-subway-tiled arches. Read more

    You're here for the huge oyster selection & the historic design, but all the fish is pretty good. It's not cheap (many filets $30+) but it's extremely casual which may appeal to some more than others

    The broiled blue fish is the best you'll ever have. Sit at the counter facing the oyster shuckers and order anything they advise. Love love love this timeless place.

    What was once a classic is now a bit worn down. Go during the holidays for a bit of nostalgia and stick with the basics.
