Oyster House

My husband, oyster-lover that he is, was determined to try it - despite warnings about noise. So we got to the Oyster House (formerly Sansom St. Oyster House).

Clam chowder - delicious. Not thick with filler, just the way it should be.

Raw oysters - marvelous.

Fried oysters - great.

Chicken salad - nice chunks of chicken, but needed seasoning - very bland.

Dessert and coffee - fine.

Service - excellent. Prompt, efficient. No long waits for anything.

Noise level - unacceptable. A din that gave me a headache.

If we return - and we probably will - we'll sit at the bar, enjoy our oysters, and won't bother to try to talk to each other. Can't say we weren't warned!
