On the heels of its 40th anniversary, there's still no better place in Philadelphia to enjoy impeccably fresh, chef-prepared seafood other than the Oyster House. Third-generation owner Sam Mink continues his family's tradition, while keeping things feeling current. From classic chilled New England-style Lobster Rolls to Family-style Clam Bake Dinners perfect for groups, the new-fashioned seafood spot is heaven on earth for fish fans. The restaurant, designed around a central raw bar, serves the city's most extensive selection of oysters on the half shell with an ever-changing list focused on local varieties from along the mid-Atlantic up to New England and Canada. The Oyster House is open for lunch, dinner and Saturday brunch, Monday through Saturday, beginning at 11:30 a.m.
