100 Steps Kitchen + Raw Bar is a spot where you can not only have a great meal, but a spot that functions as a bit of a social club too - a place to enjoy remarkable food + great company. One of our favorite parts of the night has been watching our customers interact - running into neighbors and friends, meeting up with family, or just enjoying a night out together - it's our own little social club.

The "raw bar" side - well that comes from wanting a nice, traditional oyster bar to belly up to and dive into raw oysters, clams, and other great seafood.

The two meet in our new spot, 100 Steps Kitchen + Raw Bar - welcome!

100 Steps is a BYO!

Trish was a lovely helpful waitress and the oysters were amazing. Clams were metallic tasting & shrimp, octopus, mussels were overly seasoned oh and the scallops were not for us. The texture was mushy.

An amazing experience--the freshest shellfish along with a great staff (cheers to Chloe and Kara!). The 4 pm happy hour is such a great offering, and the BYOB makes it even more appealing. Can't wait to return--so good!

Food was fantastic. The giant food tower is a great option to taste a little bit of everything for two people to share. Highly recommend the scallops entree. Although the portion is a bit small. Ended the evening with the creme brûlée. Service was spot on. Will definitely coming back.

The restaurant was very noisy. In order to hear across the table you had to shout. My husband ordered a dozen clams and when the order was served he only had six. I ordered scallops for my entree. The dinner was so small that I was hungry when I left the restaurant. We were disappointed and expected more. I would like to mention, however, that the oysters were fresh and delicious as well as my husband’s clams.

What a fantastic dining experience- fabulous service, a warm and welcoming owner, and one of our favorite chefs ever, Kara, turning out one great dish after another. This used to be our favorite go-to in the area, so glad to say now it will be again. Thank you for a delicious evening, 100 Steps!

My husband and I had dinner here for my birthday. We started with local oysters, which were excellent. Octopus appetizer was OK (there is another restaurant in town with better octopus). Our entrees were both great, I had the scallops and my husband had the mussels. The ambience was really nice and service was good. Overall it was a solid evening out and I’m looking forward to going back soon.

Always a great meal at 100 Steps. The food quality is 5 stars. We enjoyed our dinner, however, I felt a bit hurried. The food came out very quick almost too quick which made me and my party feel like they wanted to get us out dinner than later. The service was good. The restaurant ambiance was nice.

We were excited to learn in August from owner Jack Tagmouti that he intended to re-open OHS on 9/22. We’ve been OHS regulars since Jack and Joe Beninati first took over OHS about five years ago. We made a dinner reservation for 4 pm on 10/15 so that we could take full advantage of the raw bar happy hour.

OHS is BYOB. We brought one bottle of Chardonnay and one bottle of Sauvignon Blanc.

Upon entering we were greeted by Rich who still runs the front of the house. We learned that about 80% of the former staff returned and that Chef Kara Decker was back to lead the brigade. Her cuisine is very creative.

We started out with the double oyster sampler. The last two oysters we downed were West coast and deliciously sweet. We usually don’t like West coast oysters, but these two, one from Canada and one from WA state, were a happy surprise.

Next came the salmon & perch croquettes with tarragon, fried basil, and pesto in a lemon cream sauce. Amazing.

Dinner was one pasta dish and one mussel pot. Both fabulous. Don;t miss OHS's unique Parker rolls. We brought five home with us. They're great for sopping up mussel or clam pot broth!

Dessert was one pistachio crumb tart and one gelato, along with two double espressos.

Service was very attentive. Our server, Trisha, is a new team member who worked previously at the now-closed Kilkenny’s. One thing we’ve always admired about OHS is that the entire staff takes a team approach to service. If an empty glass is on a table any staff member will ask if you’d like it refilled or removed. It’s not beneath the dignity of a server to bus a table when needed or to help with set-up.

The atmosphere at OHS is energetic and friendly. We chatted with the patrons on either side of our table. Expect a higher noise level during busy hours.

Glad to see this place back open and hoping! The food was just as good as I remembered and the service was fabulous. We got the baked clams, and had to get a 2nd order, as it was so good! After having the first round of Parker Rolls, we had to order a round 2! The scallops my husband and friend ordered were amazing and I enjoyed the salmon. It was a bit noisy for talking, but overall a great vibe!

If you’re an oyster lover, Happy “Oyster” Hour at 100 Steps should be on your list!
The other appetizers and entrees are also worth a mention.
And the affogato….just perfectly delicious.

So glad they have re-opened for business. The food is always so well prepared and presented and we have never had a bad meal even though they turn over the menu quite often. Great atmosphere for a quiet meal or a meal with friends or family too.

I had been waiting for quite some time for 100 steps to reopen, and was very excited to get to go out. While the food was amazing as always, we felt the Scallops dish was missing an added side. The Brussel sprouts on the side seemed to be a single brussel dissected into single leaves. If the dish had a more generous plating of brussel sprouts, another vegetable, or some sort of starch it would have made a world of a difference. However the amount of scallops was very generous compared to any other restaurant. This was the only thing holding back this review from 5 stars.
Will come back, as their oyster bar is by far the best value and taste you can get anywhere in the area. Their selection is superb (not crazy about the West Coast selection) and happy hour is literally the best deal you will find for a raw bar in the area.
