Had the Gnocchi with a gorgonzola cream sauce with a 6oz filet sliced over the top. The sauce was creamy but not overpowering. The filet was cooked med rare, the dish was excellent. Keep up the great work!

The food is great but they need a bigger space. Always crowded. Love the lobster rolls there. Son loves the oysters. Very fresh.

Great for oyster selection and tasting. My wife and I enjoyed the atomsphere and service. They were very helpful with our questions on oyster types, taste and origin.

We LOVE Greenwich Bay Oyster Bar. We come for the oysters, period. They have great Buck-a-shuck hours during the week and on the weekends. We have eaten dinner here as well-and honestly nothing disappoints. Friendly staff, friendly Shucker, the only drawback with being a great...More
