The oysters were fresh and delicious. I had a stone crab claw and my friend had the seafood roll. He was delighted with the amount and quality of lobster and crab in his sandwich. My crab claw was good also.
I got a fried chicken dinner to take home for dinner the next night and was really pleased with this meal.
I will definitely return.

We love quality crab and oyster. Drinks are in point (thanks Rudy) and food is phenomenal. Always have a hard time choosing. Aloha mussels are a can't miss. And the king crab parpadelle special was phenomenal. Prime burger is a go to also

There was 5 of us and out server was very good and very friendly. Food was delish. We shared some oysters. I had the seafood salad- this was very good. Also, someone had the poke poke and I tried it. Very good. This was lunch time so we went in the light side. The gluten free menue was a bonus for one. Response was that we will be back

I did not think the food was that great. I would go back for the crab cellar. But as far as the oyster bar. Probably not.

The food at the restaurant was fantastic! We ordered the mussels, a dozen oysters, and the Alaskan King crab. The service was quick and exceptional. A manager delivered our food and was extremely fast at correcting an error in the order. She comped us a few oysters on top of fixing the error.

It is a great place during Happy Hours, when you are able to order the oysters at half price and there are numerous other items on the menu with the same discount. Great service too.

We come all the time but this was a really amazing experience. Olivia was awesome! The food? spectacular. Some things are a little overpriced & some are just right. Most of the entrees were totally on point. But the stone crab app special was literally two miniscule bites of crab for $9. I love the Maryland crab dip but it's $13 for like 1/4 cup of dip & 1 slice of toasted bread sliced in 3 pieces. The oysters are also a little much if you're not there during happy hour. On the bright side, the seafood linguine is the best version of that dish I've ever had. Incredible. The seafood roll was also fantastic. Maybe a touch more old Bay. Drinks were fabulous. Everyone was extremely friendly. The hostess & host that night also stood out. Overall a lovely experience.

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!

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.

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!
