Baltimore is a seafood town, but oddly there are not many places that are good at preparing it properly. Dry, rubber shrimp, overseasoned fish fillets, or filler-heavy crab cakes darken thousands of plates a day because of seafood-cooking ignorance. Thames Street Oyster House brings you into the light with its fantastic menu items which span the coast from Maryland to Maine. Starting with its raw bar and then digging into heftier items is the way we like to eat at Thames Street Oyster House, and we’ve never been disappointed. If you’re willing to splurge it has seafood towers full of oysters, clams, crab claws, and lobster to make you feel like royalty. If you want to go even larger, then order the clam-and-lobster boil and get treated to a feast.
