Sansom Street Oyster House??

  • 8

Does anyone know anything about the Sansom Street Oyster House being closed? Will they be re-opening, and if not, where on earth can I get an oyster shooter and snapper soup that won't require a credit check?

    1. I won't go to Snockey's since they served me an oyster sandwich that was one large fried oyster between 2 pieces of white bread. (I had specifically requested a roll and been told I could get one). They thought there was nothing wrong with it

      1. Its a sad day for us mullosk shooters. Cary Neff is apparently a better chef than owner. If Mink reopens to provide same, I'll be there. I hope that great smokey clam chowder will still be available along with the array of Pacific oysters.

        1. Has anyone heard if/when it will re-open.



          1. They will be re-opening in Feb or march under the original owners.

                  Sansom Street Oyster House had gone down so far that we stopped going there. Really bad!
                  We have been getting good oysters at Coquette, at 5th and Bambridge. It's a pleasant, casual bistro with some enjoyable bistro items such as French onion soup and steak-frites. The frites happen to be excellent.
                  Not fine dining, but serves the purpose. Only problem is the parking problem; really tough around there.
