    Has been rated the best oyster bar in the city and even among the best in the country. I'd recommend going in and trying some oysters or anything from the raw bar with a beer.

    Lobste roll is a must get. Tender and perfectly toasted roll with beautifully cooked sweet lobster. Wide selection of super fresh oysters with friendly servers who are happy to offer recommendations.

    We know, you’re in Maryland for the crabs, but give the butter-doused lobster roll from this Fells Point tavern a try. It comes with a side of vinegar cucumber salad, and it’s all pretty spectacular. Read more

    Start with the lobster mac and some oysters from the raw bar. And then make sure at least someone from your party orders the lobster roll! So good. The burger was solid too.

    Awesome lobster roll, goes great with the fresh oysters, lobster mac and other seafood entrees. Get a reservation or be willing to wait a bit for a bar seat (a bar seat let's you watch the shucking)

    Loved the Block Island Scallops, Wahoo Special, and the fresh raw oysters. The scallops were delicious and well worth it. Would definitely come back.

    The crab cake and lobster rolls are a must try. Get reservations if you can, there's usually a wait. The service is just as great as the food!

    Our server was awesome and I loved the atmosphere. The Newfoundland mussels were yum, and their strawberry shortcake w/ poppyseed vanilla ice cream is to dieeee for. I wish I had some right now...

    Wowza. Ask for help with the oysters and stick to nearby, then order the lobster roll w/ seasoned fries. It very much lives up to the hype.

    Must go hear if you're in Fells Point. Deviled Eggs with Crab, Seafood Salad, Clam Roll, and Beach Fries were all amazing. Also, the Lobster Roll is the best ever. Great service too!

    Great service here! Ordered a pimms cup cocktail- amazing. They have crushed ice 👍🏻 we ordered three different types of oysters - all of them delicious. Get the shrimp salad sandwich!

    Great lobster macaroni and cheese and great selection of fresh oysters. I would not recommend dining at tables in the bar area- very noisy and rowdy (especially with an O's game playing).

    An Amazing Lobster Roll...... from a guy who’s Family is from Maine. Go for a casual Lobster Roll and a beer or for a great place to sit upstairs with your honey!

    Chocolate tart with macadamia nut is one of the best desserts I've ever had!! Also good is crab cake, lobster mac and cheese, grilled octopus, and of course, the oysters!

    Great coast to coast selection of oysters. The seafood "salad" is a tower of Poseidon's bounty. Try the Mai Tai as well

    Pair oysters with local beer and sit downstairs for a livelier scene. Their fresh, cold-water Maine lobster roll is also a delicious contender in our 2012 Lobster Roll Rumble: Read more

    An amazing spot in Fells Point. The raw bar was so fresh and tasty; fish and chips were cooked well. Cozy atmosphere with a great location. A Baltimore gem!

    The mussels and clams are excellent! On the salty side, so will not be to everyone's tastes. Oysters were also super.

    Loved the beach fries. Wasn't a fan of the homemade ketchup, but just asked and they had the heinz kind too.

    Oysters are fresh! Standouts are grilled octopus, cod, lobster roll. Go before 7p if you don't have reservations, easiest for parties of 2.

    Mussels and scallops are out of this world. Cebiche is really good and as close as it gets to Peruvian cebiche. Bread pudding for dessert.

    Make sure to make a reservation. You can walk in but you will have to wait a while. The lobster roll was worth the wait though

    amazing selection of oysters. The lobster roll is amazing: it has steamed lobster meats inside, not lobster salad

    This place reminds me of Pearl Oyster bar or Luke's Lobster. Good, simple and fresh seafood.
