Oyster Bah never disappoints! It’s our go to place to relax, decompress and enjoy some of the best seafood in the city! As soon as you walk in, there’s such a great vibe. You are instantly in a better mood. They play the best music — and the service is outstanding. A huge shout out to Rudy behind the bar. He is the best at what he does, always makes us feel welcome and takes good care of us every time!

Exceeded all our expectations! The seafood tower was extremely reasonable. Seasonal availability of stone crab was a pleasant surprise.

We came here for Valentines Day and brought our 1 year old daughter. Happy hour was going on so our daughter ate for free, and there were drink/food specials. We really enjoyed our dinner and will be back! The chocolate cake was to die for! Servers were kind and attentive.

Better for dinner than brunch! Love this place normally but brunch was only ok. Omelette was pretty bland, and pasta was rather salty and dry.
Like the ambiance and our waitress was great.

Really wonderful spot for a date night. My girlfriend and I were eating her for a special occasion and the service and food made it even better. It is an expensive menu, but not ridiculous for Chicago.

We came for Restaurant Week, which was a terrific deal, not sure how they didn't lose money! Just the app must have cost $20 and was fresh and delicious (seafood combination). Food was awesome, every bite of every course. The regular menu looked good but really expensive. We spoke with our very nice waiter, coincidentally with the manager (who could not have been kinder) and some other Lettuce Manager (just a chat, but again, could not have been kinder and made us feel we were the only people in the restaurant and the most important. There was a group of 11 near us drinking pretty heavily, so it got very loud, but that's not the fault of the resto. Wish Restaurant Week was more often!

This was a restaurant week dinner. The cold seafood appetizer was excellent. The scallops were also excellent
the hot fudge sundae was a nice finish, but a little more hot fudge and an ice cream spoon would have been better than a soup spoon.

Went for Restaurant week. A great value. the appetizer of cold oysters, shrimp and mussels were very good. A nice generous portion of fish and chips.
No problem asking for more tartar sauce and ketchup.
As a double bonus they gave me a Groundhogs day gift certificate for the price of the meal
I will be back again

Clam Chowder was outstanding! Crab legs were luke warm . We ordered Brussel sprouts we sent them back they tasted burnt plus looked like oil was not fresh they were almost black as well as the poppers , should be a golden color , they also were very dark. When reservation was made we said we celebrating a birthday , reminded hostes when we arrived at restaurant and nothing was said or done!
I ordered coffee which looked and tasted old, barely warm, we were all so looking forward to dine at Oyster Bah we were all very disappointed ! We had the restaurant week special w. Crab legs

Made a reservation for dinner before a theatre show. The service was fast and accommodating, and the server was more than knowledgeable about specials and also gave recommendations. I really liked how someone came over and explained the oysters in detail. Not being an expert on them they were explained thoughtfully and in detail. Food was fantastic, right down to the French fries. Haha. Great experience, great food, great start to a really nice date night. 5 stars. Would visit again.

I’ve come here a few times for happy hour on Fridays and typically order the half price oysters, sizzling garlic shrimp, and recently the crab dip. I highly recommend it, the oysters are great quality and extremely fresh. I most recently tried the crab dip and found it to be absolutely incredible. The servers have always been extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The only thing I wish they had was more space between the high top tables in the front. Other than that, I Will definitely be coming back & highly recommend giving it a try!

We've been here numerous times. Love the variety of oysters offered. Clam chowder is good too. Every main course we've ever tried was great. My favorites are the linguini with seafood, alaskan king crab legs and fish tacos. My husband says the fish and chips are terrific too. I'm not much of dessert person so I wasn't particularly impressed with that. Really enjoy this place overall.

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!
