One person our party did not like the sangria. We came here not particularly hungry and thoroughly enjoyed the scallops special, king crab legs, which was very tasty. Would certainly come back again

The shrimp tacos, jalapeño crab and shrimp dip, and calamari were very good. The only thing I was disappointed in were the raw oysters. I’ve eaten oysters from a lot of different places and these were not my favorite. But other than that everything else including the atmosphere was good.

Everyone has their own expectation as to what an Oyster should taste like.
Some like salty, some sweet, big, small etc. That being said we have consistently won Best Oysters in Wilmington for close to 20 years. We have new batches, come in daily to ensure freshness and flavor. If you mentioned your dissatisfaction or wasn't asked if you were happy, please message me ! We take Customer service very seriously.
Thanks for your business... Steve

Having visited the Dock Street Oyster House a dozen times over three years it's safe to say that the friendly service, tasty seafood variety and affordable tabs are very much to our liking. A full bar and relaxed ambience further enhance our visits.

If you're a food snob this probably isn't the place for you. If you like a good, casual, fun place that serves quality Seafood in a friendly Bar-like atmosphere, well what are you waiting for?

Finally stopped in here for oysters and are glad we did. We've had raw oysters at many places around Wilmington and these are by far the best. Big, fresh and tasty and not at all expensive. The menu is pretty diverse but it looked like they had some specials on the board too. Will definitely be back for a full meal sometime but, in the meantime, will always come here for oysters.
