If you you would like to have a life changing lobster roll, this is the place. Staff was amazing, atmosphere was perfect. I didn't want the lobster roll to end. I wish it was never ending. Did I mention the lobster roll yet? #lobsterroll Best $25 ever spent. Lobster roll was so good, I ordered another one. In all seriousness... More

Visiting our son at the Naval Academy and decided to visit Fells Point in Baltimore. We had lunch there because of all the wonderful reviews we saw on Trip Advisor. My husband and I split the Oyster Po' Boy sandwich and a cup of the chowder- both were delicious. My in laws split the lobster roll and loved it! Highly... More

Any trip to Baltimore's Inner Harbor would be incomplete without a visit to this quaint Oyster House. The fresh seafood is expertly prepared and reasonably priced for the quality. The upstairs dining room is lovely and perfect for a romantic dinner.

Make a reservation or line up like we did! We weren't able to book for the evening we planned to eat out, but were curious about the hype, so went for lunch later that week - arrived before opening and there was already short line - so we joined. It was worth it for a delicious Lobster roll and oysters!

This place is always bustling. The best time to enjoy the raw bar is around 3pm. Tough to get a table otherwise. The seafood tower from the raw bar is to die for. Had dinner as well. Wonderful wait staff with out of this world food.

Went with 3 work colleagues. Place was lively and packed. Took at least 20 minutes to get served initially, but after that it flowed nicely. EXCEPTIONALLY good food: oysters, octopus, ceviche, scallops, crab cakes were all very fresh and uniquely prepared and presented. bread pudding dessert was loved by all. This is THE place for seafood in Baltimore.

Read all the reviews, then tried the place - everyone was right! If you are an oyster lover, you will not be disappointed. The food was the star of the show. Don't expect perfect service or wonderful place settings, just great food served in an interesting and entertaining manner. We tried a sampling of different oysters and appetisers and tossed...

This place has some great seafood dishes, well prepared and fresh. It just seems like they never have any tables, even during the work week at noon. But if you can remember, I think they take reservations.

Thames Oyster House is a family favorite for us-we take all of our visiting relatives to this excellent restaurant to realize how good the seafood here in Baltimore can be. Oyster selection everyday is phenomenal and the fish preparation is expertly done-you'll never find any overcooked seafood here. Get a reservation as the place is always packed.
