Established in 1947, The Oyster House is a multi generational restaurant known for great seafood. A diverse collection of ornate antique oyster plates serve as artwork for the open and clean interior. The large white marble bar is where I can be found devouring oysters during the “Buck-a-Shuck” happy hour.

The happy hour presents $ 1 oysters on the half shell, $ 3 oyster shooters, $ 3 drafts, and $ 5 spiked punch. Given the steep prices oysters and cocktails usually fetch in Philadelphia, The Oyster House is offering up quite a steal.

Along with a menagerie of a few dozen oysters, my friends and I always share an order of the Steamers, an over flowing bucket of soft shell clams served with drawn butter and a large helping of broth. The flavor is outstanding and the little bucket yields a surprising amount of clams.

The menu includes a bounty of diverse seafood and different preparations of oysters. Lobster rolls, crab cakes, mussels, chowders, and a clambake for two, are just a few of the other impressive options. An attentive and well informed staff assists in navigating across the menu, and the cocktails proved a talented bar staff.

Buck-A-Shuck Happy Hour is Mon – Fri 17:00 – 19:00, Sat 21:00 – 23:00, and available in the bar only.
