Love it!!

Another favorite happy hour spot! I have been coming here for as least 7 years, when it was the 'Samson Street Oyster House'. The place has gotten a brand new face lift, but the same fresh seafood remains. Cool white marble counter tops run throughout the restaurant space, the raw bar area is now open and highlights the hard working shuckers, who buy the way are still here from the old SSOH.

My wife and I went to Oyster House before attending a concert at the nearby Kimmel Center. We each had a dozen oysters (2-each of various types) and a fish entree.

So disappointing. Server was rude and food was mediocre at best. No substitutions allowed on the menu selections. Salads were bitter & wilted and drowning in a ""sherry vinegarette"" dressing. Also charged for soft drink refills that weren't ordered. Waitress just brought them to the table without asking or advising of charges. Would never go back there again and would never recommend it to others.

This restaurant is hit or miss. The oysters are generally quite good. The decor needs a lot of updating. The service can vary, and the seafood can, too.
