Fodor's Review

Nestled deep in the belly of Grand Central Station, the vast Oyster Bar has been a worthy seafood destination since 1913, and it's still a worthy destination, whether you're about to catch a train or craving seafood. Sit at the counter for the fried oyster po'boy or to slurp an assortment of bracingly fresh oysters before having a steaming bowl of clam chowder washed down with an ice-cold beer. This is also the place to experience the pleasure of fresh, unadorned seafood

such as lobster with drawn butter or grilled herring in season—generally a better option than anything that sounds too complicated, like cream-smothered seafood pan roasts.
