Getting a seat at Potomac’s Grilled Oyster Company is no mean feat, according to reviews.
The Grilled Oyster Company, located in the Cabin John Shopping Center, opened Sept. 5, serving dishes from grilled oyster – of course – to Old Bay fries and a Chesapeake cioppino. The Table Talk blog on Bethesda Magazine reports that without reservations, a weekend diner could wait upwards of an hour for a table, but the wait is worth it.
“It’s shaping up to be a very nice restaurant, with reasonable prices, a pleasant ambiance and dishes made with high-quality seafood,” Table Talk blogger Carole Sugarman wrote.
According to Sugarman, top dishes include the Chesapeake Bay oysters, a grilled oyster combo, and the Maryland crab cake.
“Best main course so far: the Chesapeake cioppino, a jam-packed bowl of fresh-tasting crab, shrimp, clams, mussels, rockfish and diced vegetables in an addictive tomato broth,” Sugarman wrote.
On Yelp.com the new restaurant has an average rating of three-and-a-half stars out of five. Yelp reviewers also recommend the oysters, the calamari appetizer, the cioppino, the burgers and the crème brulee.
