The Sansom Street Oyster House
Oyster House is an East Coast seafood restaurant and raw bar, serving Philadelphia’s freshest fish and shellfish. The restaurant is designed around a central marble raw bar where we serve the city’s most extensive selection of oysters on the half shell. Our ever-changing list is focused on local varieties from the mid-Atlantic up to New England and Canada. In our bright and airy dining room, more than 100 vintage oyster plates are displayed on white brick walls. Those plates are from the collection of owner Sam Mink, a third-generation restaurateur who proudly sources the freshest fish, including lobsters from Maine that are out of the water for no more than 24 hours before arriving on your table as our critically acclaimed and wildly popular lobster roll. Our menu changes daily, to reflect what Sam and Chef Andy Kitko select from the market each morning.
