    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.

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

    The Ginny Lynn may be the best cocktail I've ever had. And order the fried oysters. And crab cake. And...

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

    Amazeballs lobster roll. I will be dreaming about it all the way to California.

    Sit outside if you can. It's not as noisy and is great for people watching and few of the harbor.

    mishmashmargie · September 4, 2013
  • Bradley D.

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

    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...

    Julia · August 31, 2013
  • Matt L.

    The oysters are phenomenal. Definitely try the best Lobster Roll I have ever eaten.

    Matt Laurinas · August 21, 2013
  • Victoria B.

    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).

    Victoria Ballestero · August 18, 2013
  • Becca R.

    If you love grapefruit juice, try the potent and divine Ginny Lynn ... Terrific oysters. Lobster roll will make you cry: SO good.

    Becca R. · July 14, 2013
  • Christopher L.

    Chocolate tart and dulce de leche bread pudding all the way. Never knew a seafood restaurant could do dessert so well.

    Christopher Lorn · July 13, 2013
  • Angela W.

    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!

    Angela Wen · July 13, 2013
  • Jun L.

    Beyond the oysters which are great, the octopus starter and crab cake are standouts!

    Jun Lu · July 13, 2013
  • Melinda C.

    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

    Melinda Colon · June 30, 2013
  • Yong K.

    Solid mussels. Lobster in the roll was a bit tough.

    Yong Kwon · June 4, 2013
  • Brad B.

    Best food in Fells Point, make a reservation, because they're always packed.

    Brad Boban · April 30, 2013
  • Andrew C.

    You're crazy if you get anything other than the lobster roll and lobster Mac n cheese.

    Andrew C. · March 30, 2013
  • Joe J.

    Great oysters and lobster roll, but I'm still thinking about that side of Brussels sprout gratin.

    Joe Juntereal · February 8, 2013

    Kick things off with a House oyster shooter: A plump raw oyster in an Old Bay-rimmed shot of Natty Boh. Giddyup.

  • Jorge B.

    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.

    Jorge Brake · August 19, 2012

    Great raw bar

    The house ketchup is a sweet surprise! Try it with beach fries while you wait for your oysters. :) Awesome place!!
