The Ballard Annex Oyster House serves fresh NW seafood (we might sneak somethings over from the East Coast, I'm lookin' at you Maine Lobster!) seven days a week. We've always got 8 types of oysters behind the bar -where we serve a variety draft wines & beers, bubbles, and specialty cocktails- you'll also find us steaming house made chowders, bisques, and shellfish in our stainless steam kettles. Feelin' picky? Whole Dungeness Crab and the aforementioned lobster are also available to crack at the table.

This is a great place for a semi-fancy meal for a couple or a big family gatherings. I’ve been here for my anniversary and for when my brother visited from out of town-it’s fancy but not pretentious, and everything is excellent

Food was very mediocre. My group was very excited by the menu and we all ordered a wide variety of options on the menu, and every dish ended up being somewhat disappointing. Great ambience and accommodating for a large group of us.

Just made it to happy hour (3.30-6pm) which allowed us to try 6 or so different dishes at very reasonable prices in one of our favorite seafood restaurants in Seattle.

Delicious food, as always! First tried this place last fall and it has become a regular date-night spot since. Every meal we've had has been great- good service, nice place!
