    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.

    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.

    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

    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)

    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...

    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!
  • Molly H.
    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).

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

    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!

    Incredible food in the cutest little Baltimore neighborhood, Fell's Point. Had Monk fish with a lobster sauce over scallion and potatoes. Great atmosphere and incredible service!
  • George M.
    The mussels and clams are excellent! On the salty side, so will not be to everyone's tastes. Oysters were also super.

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

    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

    Love this place! My faves so far: pink lemonade crush, calamari, mussels, crab & lobster risotto, beach fries, and the list goes on and on! Plus the owner, Candace Beattie, is AMAZING!!!

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

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

    Fabulous crabcakes. Crispy on the outside, rich and meaty on the inside. Great balance of flavors and textures!

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

    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

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

    Delightful new spot! Best lobster roll in town, the mussels are fabulous and don't miss their take on Maryland crab soup.

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

    Reservation is not particularly required if you have a group less than 4. Wait time I guess depends on the specific time of day. Didn't have to wait at all for 3 people on Saturday night.

    Bland crab cake sandwich saved by surprisingly tasty & tangy side dish of beet salad.

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

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