"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."
"The oysters at Oyster House are always super fresh, interesting, and delicious. I usually go at happy hour when they're a buck-a-shuck and order a dozen with a couple of cold beers to start my night out."
"Though they do run a serviceable buck-a-shuck happy hour, Oyster House really shines with an unparalleled selection of oysters from both coasts, expertly unhinged and served immediately. To me, no one does oysters better in the city."
"These raw oysters are the freshest in the city. Watch the guys shuck them to order in the center of the restaurant; it shows they're serious about their product. It's hard to choose a favorite from the dozen or so varieties—they're all so good!"
"Oyster House serves the freshest oysters around, and during happy hour, they’re only a buck each. The price, plus lots of Tabasco and mignonette, makes them incredibly addictive."
