A long, rich history of preparing the best freshly caught seafood makes the Grand Central Oyster Bar the ultimate experience for any seafood lover.
Really good service, fresh and delicious seafood.
Best oysters ever, great flavor. Chowder was amazing!! The place was amazing!!
Oysters of course!
Great atmosphere, very classic New York!
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.
Great tourist trap, this is NY you can get better sea food and fresher oysters, just keep searching
Oysters were not shucked fresh. Main dish was unflavored.
❤️ beautiful place, great oyster! One of my "have to" in NYC!
Best best fresh clams. Oysters and shrimps and clam chowder soup best in the city!!!
Best clams fresh delicious
Martinis and oysters
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
Um, oysters of course! The NE clam chowder is delish.
Awesome spot. The Oysters are delicious and huge.
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.
food is very good but the atmosphere is amazing
Seafood, shellfish lovers - don't miss this. Everything and every taste is possible.
Oysters all very good quality. Excellent brine and freshness.
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.
Ostriche doblon great!!!
The oysters were bland and hard to tell apart. Drowned in condiments to the point that I questioned what was the point of having oysters if you can't taste them. Definitely skip this tourist trap.
Don't come here. Hot, slow and food is not great. Too expensive for what you get.
Overpriced Seafood version of Denny's.
Fantastic selection of oysters, served simply in a great atmosphere. Skip the overpriced mains and stick to the oyster bar.
Amazing oysters, but not a huge fan of the lobster roll.
Oyster pan roast is A+!
Incredible variety of oysters at a fair price. If you don't know which ones to choose, just ask a dozen at the waiter's choise. Nice place at early night with a glass of white wine.
You'll find a lot of see food. It's a bit pricey but it's good.
NY + Oysters = this place. Good seafood, but slow service
Plenty of oysters, beers, and a comfortable atmosphere. Classic.
Oyester and any seafood like lobster too...
Delicious Bloody Mary...reminds me of the ones I've had in NOLA. Yummy!!!
Absolutely awful service and terrible food. Don't ever bother coming here.
The oysters were phenomenal. The bivalve platter was uneven, though. The garlic mashed potatoes and the kale sprouts were great, and "Hoptical Illusion" and Ballantine IPA were the perfect matches.
Sit at the counter and let them recommend oysters; they know them
get some raw oysters to start (ask your server to pick some out from the daunting list) before ordering your favorite fish on a dish
$1.25 oysters, $4 beers, $6 wines, $8 martinis, and appetizer specials. Mon-Wed 4:30-7pm, Sat 1-5pm in the Saloon and Lounge
An instant favourite! What a way to spend valuable units of time. Champagne, oysters and the rest in a truly magical setting. What's not to love =)
I love picking up friends at Grand Central and heading here for a bite. It's the perfect immersion into NYC
Lobster margarita was super fresh. The architecture is interesting too.
Order the Oysters with Roasted Garlic Asiago Butter
super busy. but high quality
Bewildered by the variety of fresh raw oysters? Our waiter helped pick out an East meets West platter with succulent bites from Massachusetts, Virginia, and Oregon.
Clam chowder espectacular!! Sea Bass delicious!!! Great place!!!
Clam chowder the best!!! Sea Bass and oysters
Smoked brook trout filet was sneaky great. Light smoke pristine flavor.
