Grand Central Oyster Bar Reviews

Add your review for Grand Central Oyster Bar.

  • jmezzullo reviewI have been going to the Oyster Bar Restaurant for several years, and this past year I find the service has gone down. I also find the food not as good, and have been feeling like I've been ripped off. I will try other seafood restaurants, and will not be going down to the Oyster Bar again.

  • stefanielynjones reviewPopped in on a Thursday noon w/o reservation and was immediately seated and waited. Instead of the requested 6x1 oysters - leaving the selection up to the waiter - I was served 3x2. Tasty and fresh. Coquilles St.Jacques as main course was a pleasant surprise regarding taste+size. Service moderately attentive. Otherwise good value for money. Will go back and can't understand why they close on Sat+Sun.

    55555 by Soo Young Ahn

  • Nastya AThe price doesn't match the quality. (I tried oysters Rockefeller and dessert, didn't like both). Plus the staff wasn't really amiable, as I expected from other reviews

  • Eric CIt is a seafood restaurant. It opened along with the terminal itself in 1913 and has been in business ever since. In 2016, Zagats gave it a food rating of 22/30, meaning Very Good To Excellent.

    55555 by Eric C

  • Eug NHappy hour $1.25 oysters (Very good) and 1/2 price drinks (not quite bad, surprisingly) is what you sometimes need in this city.

    55555 by Tracy A

  • ZubinYou're here for the huge oyster selection & the historic design, but all the fish is pretty good. It's not cheap (many filets $30+) but it's extremely casual which may appeal to some more than others

    55555 by Zubin
