Probably hands down some of the best oysters and tuna poke we have ever eaten! The lobster roll is delicious and stuffed full of lobster! Great wine/beer selection and amazing service! Definitely worth the wait and it’s small but people do come and go so although we waited for 25 minutes, we didn’t regret it a bit! Awesome place!!!

We tried to get into this restaurant 5 times...finally got in- worth the wait. The key is to go on an off time ...the shortest wait was at 4:00. If you want to go for dinner...send one person over to put your name down and then walk around and come back. There are only two tables and two bars inside.

My son and I got the lobster roll, it was amazing. The oysters were fantastic. We love this place.

Arrive early if you want a seat without a wait at 167 Raw. The place is very small but the food is simply wonderful. There are samplings of cold, raw seafood as starters including fresh oysters and beautiful cold cocktail shrimp. Various po-boy's and a fabulous lobster roll can be added to fill you but save room for their key lime pie which melts in your mouth. Service is great. All in all a unique dining experience well worthy of a return.

This place is the BOMB. That’s really all I need to say but TripAdvisor wants more so ok. We enjoyed a glass of wine while waiting for seats at the bar. Be aware, this is a small place, not great for parties larger than 3-4. We had the soup of the day, several different oysters, fish tacos and Key Lime pie. Everything was top notch. The bartenders, servers and host were super friendly and welcoming. One of our favorite meals of our five day stay. They do not serve hard liquor but have wonderful beer and wine offerings.

You do not want to miss 167 Raw. Tip #1: if you don’t tolerate long lines but can accept shorter lines then do lunch, arriving about 11:30 or so. This allows the early Type A’s to get in and then you follow w/o that long of a wait. Also, Tip #2, is you have to try the tuna burger; sushi grade, expertly cooked and a limited volume item so they do run out. Others had lobster roll - wonderful, fish taco and oyster basket. All outstanding. Just a unique place seats only 20+ but worth any wait.
