Oyster Bah

Lincoln Park's Seafood Destination

Sister to Shaw’s Crab House, Oyster Bah is an East Coast-inspired seafood restaurant located in the heart of Lincoln Park. With nautical themed decor, Oyster Bah boasts all things fresh seafood with an influence that’s anchored in New England. Diners can enjoy a dynamic oyster program pulling from both East and West coasts, fish sourced from all over the world, and a solid mix of classic and unique seafood dishes like Clam Stuffies, Crispy One-Sided Snapper and even a grilled onion loaded burger. Guests can savor a small selection of cocktails riffing on classic East libations, and their wine list is structured to perfectly complement the seafood. On the lower level of the restaurant is the Low Tide Lounge, a cozy basement bar serving food and craft cocktails off of an exclusive menu.
