#17 Thames Street Oyster House
Fells Point

Before Thames Street Oyster House came along in 2011, there was no place to send someone for decent seafood and a reliable raw bar near the waterfront in Fells Point.

Thames Street filled that niche, and went further by not pandering to notions of what a Baltimore seafood restaurant should be. The best dishes traffic in fish like hake and fluke that are better known in New England than Maryland.
