Thames Street Oyster Bar was recommended by a local coffee shop owner for lunch and it did not disappoint. We were one of the first in today for lunch and didn't have a reservation. Managed to sit upstairs by a window with a view of the harbor. The fish and chips were the best we had ever eaten, and we're... More

Amazing food in a casual setting. There were over 10 kinds of oysters to chose from and the crab stew was delicious and tomato based. It was very crowded but found a place at the bar for two pretty quickly. And the grapefruit crush was awesome! Definitely a place to go!

We have recently fallen in love with raw oysters. Thames has a great selection, perfectly schucked and served with three sauces. The lobster roll was excellent also. Go early or be sure to make a reservation.

Today was our first visit to Baltimore's Fells Point area, at lunch time. After searching for a parking spot, we found ourselves parked about two doors from the Thames Street Oyster House. Looked interesting, but we looked at other area restaurants & their menus. It was an easy decision to go back to the TSOH. We thoroughly enjoyed a tasty... More

Fabulous food, the lobster roll was the best I've had outside of Maine. The service was great but there are long lines so plan ahead and get a reservation. Don't bother with dessert - they are just average but the seafood is suburb!

If you are looking to splurge on an exquisitely prepared meal, I have only eaten here once, but it certainly lived up to expectations. Fells point is a beautiful area to take a walk with your special someone. So you are guaranteed a memorable evening. Very Baltimore

The title says it all. This place is amazing. We had the octopus appetizer, and I had the bouillabaisse, which was phenomenal. Great local beers too. Make a point to stop by this place.

This is in the Fells Point area of Baltimore. Many bars and restaurants and overall a good vibe. They had an extensive oyster list. All we had that evening was three of the 15 or so different oyster choices. We sat at the bar on a Monday night and had to wait for seats. Small bar, I never left the... More

We went to the bar for happy hour right when the place opened and were doubled over with the size and freshness of the food. I could have drunk the mussels sauce. yum, yum. Hubby enjoyed his oysters. Have been back since and also sat in the bar for dinner. Seafood sald friend had was declared amazing.
