MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

The original of four locations, Hank’s Oyster Bar promises a good time and a full stomach. Snag a seat on the spacious front patio or opt for a table indoors where bottles of malt vinegar and Old Bay seasoning are a sign of things to come.

Meals begin with a bowl of humble Goldfish cheese crackers, then prepare yourself for a sea, ahem, of dishes. Feast on platters of raw bar beauties (including Hank's signature Saltywolfe oyster) to oysters any way you want ‘em (Hog Island style involves dunking in a tangy lemon-garlic-Tabasco-butter sauce, a sprinkling of breadcrumbs and shredded cheese and broiling until caramelized!). Lobster rolls, creamy chowder, and crab cake sandwiches with Old Bay-seasoned fries conjure up days at the beach from years gone by.
