If you have not tried their oysters, crab legs, Brussels sprouts, fried chicken - wait everything you are missing out. We will continue returning to this restaurant!

The food here was amazing! It is on the pricey side, but that's what you'd expect from a seafood restaurant. Definitely recommend for a date or get together with friends.

QC&O is a terrific place. The seafood is delicious. There are tremendous options and the fried chicken adds to any meal. The staff are also very good. Go to QC&O.

Been to Quality Crab & Oyster Bah so many times now, and it is consistently good. The music level downstairs was at enjoyable level than last visit when we sat upstairs and it was super loud, thank you for that!
Fish taco's were good, oysters delicious, mussels and shrimp also good, and the coconut cake was a nice closing to the evening. Will be back.

This was a great find! We felt like we were in some local Wisconsin restaurant (if they served seafood). Probably felt like East Coast too, I just haven't spent much time there. The food was delicious and fresh--my husband and I split the seafood wedge, which was perfect. The oysters were delicious and fresh (as you'd hope), my son had the fish & chips--the batter was amazing and crispy and the fish was yummy and not too "fishy." The lobster fried rice was good, but was not what we were expecting of a fried rice dish (not at all Asian), and my daughter's salmon, she said, was delicious. It was a little pricey, as seafood often is, but we had a gift card. We'll definitely return.

100% recommend! I’ve been to several seafood restaurants in Chicago, and this one never disappoints. The casual and relaxed ambiance makes for a great time! Plus, if you try an oyster for the first time, you’ll get your name on the wall!

We enjoyed our visit for fresh seafood. Service was great & our waiter's recommendations helped in our dining choices of Panko breaded shrimp & the Seafood Roll.
The menu offers enough choices & will bring us back soon, especially for the Happy Hour Specials.

Food is very good and everyone working there is so nice! I will say the restaurant almost feels pressure sealed, the air just feels light on oxygen. Have had to step outside for a breather every time i’ve been. Super fun spot though, just maybe don’t bring any friend who’s prone to fainting haha

We started out with a dozen oysters, then the poke mussels and grilled shrimp. For entrees we had the seafood linguini and salmon. All we excellently prepared and delicious.

Even with the slight name change, the place still rates high as places to go in Chicago if you are in the mood for seafood. The oyster selection although small, is well done featuring oysters from both coasts. In addition, the nightly specials are terrific and would highly recommend one of your party choosing a special. This is our third time eating at this restaurant and they have surpassed and overcome their issues that occurred on our second visit. I would definitely recommend to a friend.

Tables are a little too close for my liking. But the food was amazing.. I think our waiter got off mid shift and they forgot about us. We got there at 7:15 for our reservation. Didn’t get our food till 9:30.. set prolly 40 min with no waiter even checking on us. That was the only hiccup

Always love coming back to Oyster Bah. The Thanksgiving black Friday deal was awesome of course, but the food is what really keeps us coming back. Also this visit we were served excellent food.
My only disappointment was with the fact that while on the reservation I asked for a standard table, we were brought to a high top. Since it was busy I let it go, but later it became extremely warm in the place (upstairs), and the music level was way too loud. Management should keep an eye on this.
