    Snapper Soup

    Haven't been there in years,new renovations! I missed the snapper soup that made the place famous!It was a very thick,dark broth with fresh pieces of snapper in it.Also,the fried oysters had a very thick and crunchy,delicious batter on them.Please bring these back?Otherwise the food and sevice was GREAT!

    real crab cakes

    Pleasant experience, but fresh crab cakes do not require remoulade sauce for help. Next time hold back on the filler, a touch of mayo and exploit the inseason blue point crab market in the Chesapeake Bay area.

    Just recently got into eating oysters and was dying for a seafood fix today. I was very impressed with the food here. The oysters were beyond belief and the seafood stew was amazing. I am looking forward to returning soon to try some of their other dishes.

    Can't wait to go back...

    ...only next time I'll stick with the raw oysters--which are awesome. The roasted ones, on the other hand, are just OK. The snapper soup is a little better, but the crab claw was just bad. Service was commendably spry and attentive. Beer selection could be improved, and the place is loud. Prices are competitive.

    After work stop!

    Excellent food, service and atmosphere. The lobster roll was outstanding along with the lobster bisque and crab cake. If you like roasted oysters you have to try the combo. Nice experience, fast service. Parking no problem, even better if you can navigate under pressure. Gota try at least once.

    Great makeover on a city favorite!

    I have always been a fan, but many parts turned me off in the past. I heard of the makeover and new ownership, and decided to check out with family for Friday Happy Hour - the new decor and ambiance was great! Totally what I had hoped for. Great deals on "special oyster" of the day. Shrimp dish and mussels amazing. Even better, the beverage list was fantastic. Oyster shooter section so inventive! And Happy Hour special of $3 shooter was a deal. Husband had rum punch that was spectacular. Perfect and reasonably priced wine and beer list. Service was spot on, knowledgeable and well trained. I fought with myself on whether to write this - I want to be able to get a bar seat or table every time I want to come here!

    Not so hot

    My best girlfriend and I heard about the Oyster House's makeover and decided to try it out. I had been here once before years ago and wasn't impressed. Despite forgetting to put our appetizer order in, our waitress was bubbly and eager to please. Unfortunately, the food was just not that hot. Literally and figuratively. We got the oysters rockafeller and the lobster pot for 2. The lobster pot was a bit overcooked, the lobster was split and uncleaned and the broth tasted a little like dishwater. The only plus was that it was reasonably priced. Good thing the company was enjoyable, or I'd be mad. I won't be back.
