Chef  reviews Snapper turtle soup  at post.venue.name
Snapper turtle soup
"This soup (a Philadelphia classic) has the right texture without being too thick, a common problem with snapper soup. I think it's the best bowl in town, and I add just a little sherry to bring all the flavors out."
Chef  reviews Raw oysters at post.venue.name
Raw oysters
"There are times where I'll want something to eat but I’m not ready for a full meal, so I'll head to Oyster House and grab a few oysters. However, they’re so good, fresh, and briny that "a few" turns into "a lot," and even though I wasn’t even really hungry, I find myself housing a few dozen."
Chef  reviews Lobster roll at post.venue.name
Lobster roll
"Being from New England, it's hard to find a perfect lobster roll in Philly. But Oyster House does the traditional sandwich right, with just the right amount of mayo and a top-split white bun."
Pemaquid oysters
"They're not always on the menu because Oyster House's availability of oysters changes daily, but these plump, juicy Mainers have a good brininess and perfect sweet-salty balance. Served with a mignonette sauce, housemade oyster crackers, and cocktail sauce, they're best enjoyed during Oyster House's lively lunch."
