Everything from start to finish was amazing! We started out with cocktails and the Queen Anne Shellfish Platter. We then ordered the lobster mac and cheese, the crab cake, and the lobster roll. The squash dish that came with the crab cake tasted like the best pumpkin pie I've ever had! For dessert we had the toasted marshmallow ice cream... More

Came here because Berthas was closed. Best thing that could have happened. These guys make the best mussels in town and their oysters were fresh and delicious. Great ambiance and excellent service as well. We could not believe our luck! Go, you won't be disappointed. But make a reservation if you want to sit upstairs, although I would highly recommend...

Our second time dining here and the service and food were stellar both times. The wait staff is friendly, prompt, knowledgeable and seem to really enjoy what they do. Can't wait to go back again.

The crab cake was a bit different....presented in a skillet with a couple sides.....a very good cake with interesting presentation. We tried their lobster roll too....also nicely done (although this isn't Maine). So, different things here, very good seafood, worth a visit for sure.

A colleague and I wanted to visit another seafood restaurant on a Sunday evening but learned it was closed, so after a quick search of reviews we decided to visit Thames Street Oyster House. Although it was almost 8pm, the place was packed and we were told we’d have a 20-30 minute wait for a table. A couple of patrons... More

I had previously written a review of Thames but had to write another. Came to dinner with a friend and tried the lobster roll.. absolutely amazing. The best roll I have tried .. ever. The roll is grilled perfect with butter and the lobster is a very good portion for the price. Plus the roll does not fall apart like... More

Went here New Year's Eve without a reservation and they fit us in after a stay at the bar. The food was just superb - we had halibut and fish and chips and both were so buttery, soft, and delicious with exceptional sides and generous portion sizes. Try the lobster mac'n'cheese appetizer! Loud, friendly place - kinda like Fell's Point... More
