The grilled oysters were very good. I definitely recommend them. I also had tuna tacos. They were good also. Since I did not eat a full dinner, cannot comment on that.

The crab cake Benedict was DELISH. I wasn’t sure when I ordered but once I tasted it, it was heaven!!!! The oysters were tasty and fresh as well. The location and staff couldn’t have been better.

Beautiful space, excellent food, festive atmosphere! We are locals and this was our first dinner at The Grilled Oyster Co. The fried clams, grilled oysters, beet salad and soft shell crabs were all amazing. We will definitely return!

We had the beet salad and the Seafood tower with unlimited Mimosas. It was spectacular. The shrimp were slightly over cooked and a bit rubbery. Everything else was perfect.

Location is great, the parking is plentiful, but the proportions are all off. If I order a crab dip (which was excellent) don’t make me ask for bread three times bc you are only handing out 2 pieces at a time. The pickles were too...More

I have started going here every two weeks or so and after trying several items I have settled on the large sea scallops served on a bed of lobster risotto, with a couple of serious pieces of lobster in the risotto. The scallops are fresh...More
