Always a pleasure visit Taylor shellfish. Oysters are the best! Po Boy sandwiches and crab rolls are great also.

My nephew & his wife are staying at an apartment beside the hospital he will be in for 3 months starting tomorrow. I ordered 2 Dungeness Dinners and had them delivered to them and I am in Virginia. The online ordering is very easy and...the delivery man was great. Taylor's will always be our favorite restaurant in Seattle. Sometimes dinner isn't just dinner.More

There is no better place to consume shellfish in Seattle than the original Taylor location on Melrose Ave...this place ROCKS! The joint is not too big, not too small--just right. All of the good stuff is on display in tanks and ready for you to...gobble...you gotta do Dungeness crabs, geoduck, oysters, clams, and sea urchin--if they have it. Everything is fresh as can be and served in the tastiest manner possible...wash it all down with a cold brew or a bottle of burgundy blanc, and you will be good-to-go. Enjoy!More

This was suggested to us by a local and it did not disappoint! My friend loved the oysters (not for me) and i enjoyed the prawns. What a great neighborhood and find!

Fantastic Oysters!!! Seafood Stew was also great and get yourself a Vodka Oyster shooter too. So glad to have found this place. Thanks random guy at the airport for the recommendation!

No reservations so prepare to wait in this non fussy place. High top tables or counters make it difficult for some patrons. Great oysters, so-so prawns, awful cocktail sauce. However, we mostly objected to the tacked on mandatory gratuity! That ruined the entire experience for...us. We would have added on a gratuity to our bill, but were shocked that we were not given the choice.More

One of the best things about Seattle is the seafood. When you lived in a landlocked state and miss the sound, night out with fresh seafood is a must. Taylor Shellfish did not disappoint with the variety of oysters. We feasted on two platters experiencing...the best I have had in years. Tanks around you show you what is in store, Small, quaint and so comfortable. Don't miss it!!More

This place was a wonderful surprise! The best experience of a raw bar that I ever had, period!!! Service by Caleb was wonderful. Everything was fabulous: oysters, crab, prawns, caviar, tuna! All good! Take your time and enjoy the place!

This is pure Seattle. Great place to get oysters on the half shell, or oyster shooters or crab! A fun spot to stop in, Staff is welcoming and fun. I will make sure to stop in and eat next time I am in town.
