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!
