Nice local seafood spot. Very casual, good food, friendly service.
Nice oyster selection, good calamari, and grilled artichokes.
One of our favorite chill spots in LP.

Super fresh, although a bit pricey, oysters; hand crafted in house cocktails, tasty brunch options. Spare for the high tab nothing to complain about.

We have been here several times and while the food is very good but the service is uneven. The wait staff is very attentive until you place your order then disappears. Makes getting another round of drinks difficult. It’s a shame because it takes away from the overall experience.

Waited 25 minutes just to get a drink. Server forgot to put in entree so waited an hour to get that. Was bought the wrong wine at one point during the meal. Been here many times before and normally the service is excellent but yesterday was terrible

This place is a great alternative to high priced, formal steak houses of Chicago. Casual dress, kid friendly, and unpretentious. Great variety of seafood emphasizing oyster selections. If you get there early great happy hour prices on oysters as well as some drinks and menu items. If you’re in Lincoln Park walk on over and enjoy.

This place in a great location and is a must!! Moving here from CA, my husband and I constantly want great seafood and sushi. We’re so happy when we find a great place like this gem! The atmosphere is inviting, fun, and cute. The food- AH-Mazzinggg!!! I read to order the sizzling garlic shrimp so we definitely did those, some oyster, clam shower soup, and the seafood roll. I couldn’t tell you which one was my favorite... they were all so good! Great dish size and even better taste! The service was great also and fun music in the back. I booked our reservation on open table and got in no problem. We’re so happy we found this place and will be back soon!

Quality food and cocktails in a very casual atmosphere. Service was great (as usual in a LEYE restaurant). LEYE has three very different restaurant choices all on the same block; Oyster Bah, Summer House, and Stella Barra.

Thanks Dahlcast for the free Coconut Cake!

The poke appetizer was great- very fresh and good flavor. I had the crab cake sandwhich and it was by good. My son had the mussels- they were disappointing. He will usually devour a bowl of mussels - did not even finish them.

This is a great place with great food! The decor was fresh and clean with a coastal feel to it. Our server Charlie was very nice. The staff was helpful and quick. Our drinks were just right. Not too strong, but not weak either. The food, the food, the food! The food was perfect! It did not require any salt or pepper. The oysters s were clean and briny. The overall experience was great! I can't wait to come back!

Our visit started off rocky. We arrived on time for our reservation, but was told that our table was not ready yet and that they were just waiting for them to leave. That is totally fine, but as we stood by the side and waited we watched at least one party that did not have a reservation get seated before us. We waited for almost 20 minutes to be seated.

Once we were seated our waitress was wonderful and the food was great. But our wait still left a bad taste in our mouths. With all of the options in the area I'm not sure if we will be running back any time soon.

Greatly enjoyed this place. Good selection of oysters! I also have to give a shout-out to the service. My friend has a lot of food sensitivities that she feels apologetic about. When her seafood salad came out with egg on it, she had to send it back. But the server was very understanding and she got a new one. We both appreciated this!

The four of us had 4 dozen oysters during happy hour. They were very fresh and delicious. The hush puppies, cold mussel appetizer and calm chowder were all delicious. For main dishes we seafood rolls and tuna tacos. We shared the coconut cake and peppermint ice cream for dessert. It was a very enjoyable eal and we will return.
