We had a great date night - the food was great, and our server was great in helping pick some new (to us) oyster varieties.

It was our anniversary, and our server, Tom, was amazing. He was knowledgeable and went above and beyond to make sure we had a good time and ordered the right things!

Everything about dining here is so nice. We ordered a meal to share and the server made sure it was served on two individual plates, which is so thoughtful. The oysters that were recommended were incredible, and the king crab legs were to DIE for! Our server was super friendly, attentive, and kind. I never felt like I was waiting for anything, and the outdoor dining setup felt safe and cozy. The fires beside each table were so warm I didn't need to wear my overcoat, and each table is protected on either side by plexiglass. Super appreciate the measures taken to assure a pleasant experience!

Disappointed. Was not impressed by service or by food itself. IMHO, I think the prices are too high for what you get from this tourist restaurant.

First time dining out during the pandemic. My out of town friend wanted seafood and I saw that you have outdoor seating. Not only did we eat outside but the effort Elliot's has put in the work to make outdoor seating AWESOME. Food and service were great as well.

Great food, check in was a bit disorganized- they had given our reservation to someone else by accident. Outdoor dining arrangement feels cheap compared with dine in, but is safe and about par for “covid dining” experiences. Food was timely, fresh and delicious.

We come here all the time with or without out of town guests and, during the Pandemic, they have rocked to create a safe dining experience. The food was as great as ever and the service was perfect. THX!

Elliott’s Oyster House was absolutely stunning in all aspects. The view was breathtaking, the service was spectacular, and all the food was immaculate. The price should be noted before coming but I promise it’s worth the great quality. Highly recommend!

Excellent oysters! Crab cakes were just meh, but fish n chips were good.
The tables were too close together, so even with plexiglass dividers, I felt a bit uncomfortable.

So disappointed. Our food was flavorless and just warm*. It definitely wasn't what I was used to having here (pre-pandemic). Our server didn't seem like she wanted to be there. We haven't eaten out in over 7 months and looked forward to a great meal and experience. I don't know what happened to their standards.

*Details: we ordered the spicy and traditional chowders - they are both just warm and mine wasn't spicy. The caesar salad was bland and soggy. The burger was also bland and the fries were just warm.
