The Lobster Roll never disappoints and their oysters are always amazing. We like to sit at the bar as the bartenders are super friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. Truly the best seafood spot in Baltimore.

Without a doubt the BEST lobster roll outside of Maine. The Oyster House is very tiny, with lots of charm and is always bustling. The fresh oysters and seafood are a must!

This was a delicious meal. A very hip vibe. Amazing staff. I highly recommend this little gem. Tonya our server was great. It’s nice to see an entire staff enjoy their job. I will always stop when I’m in Fell’s Point.

Don't know as only had oysters on the half-shell. But would bet money that their fried version is great.
