I had previously written a review of Thames but had to write another. Came to dinner with a friend and tried the lobster roll.. absolutely amazing. The best roll I have tried .. ever. The roll is grilled perfect with butter and the lobster is a very good portion for the price. Plus the roll does not fall apart like... More

Went here New Year's Eve without a reservation and they fit us in after a stay at the bar. The food was just superb - we had halibut and fish and chips and both were so buttery, soft, and delicious with exceptional sides and generous portion sizes. Try the lobster mac'n'cheese appetizer! Loud, friendly place - kinda like Fell's Point... More

This was the best meal I've had in quite a long time and maybe the best seafood ever! Every bite was an experience. The service was impeccable also. Highly recommend!!!

We visited Fells Point during Fleet Week and walked here for dinner on recommendation from a friend. Luckily we scored a seat outside as they were on a wait for much of the evening and it was a beautiful fall night. The seafood here was amazingly fresh; we did oysters, the shellfish tower, and escargot. Our waitress was also very... More

I know nothing about oysters. Nothing. I'm from Chicago. So going to an oyster house is a little intimidating. Not to worry. We got schooled in the difference between the cold water and warmer water oysters, and which our landlubbing taste buds might favor. And they went down awfully easy. So did the lobster roll and the beer. It's nice... More

We went for the oyster poboy. It did not disappoint. Not a place I'd take kids. Tables very close together. We were seated upstairs and made reservations. The table next to us had an entire fish, fins, head, everything, sat up on plate.

I called a couple of days out to get a reservation and they were booked until late that night but that didn't stop us and I'm so glad it didn't! We arrived around 5:30 and the wait for 2 was 45 minutes. While my boyfriend was at the end of the bar getting a drink, I was happy to land... More
