About Us


Public Fish and Oyster will not be offering dine-in service for the duration of the Coronavirus period.  In it’s place, we will be offering take out.  Call us ahead and we will have your order prepared within a few minutes.  Limited delivery may be available as well.  Our takeout menu can be found under the menu tab on our website, under “more menus”.

Hours for take out will be 4pm to 8 pm every day.

Public Fish & Oyster features fresh East Coast Seafood, Raw Bar, craft beer and cocktails and a comprehensive wine list provided with exquisite service.

We are a small restaurant and highly recommend reservations.  Our bar counter seating is available on a first come first serve basis and patio seating (in season) is usually reservable day-of, weather permitting.

Our famous lobster rolls are available only during Happy Hour (4 to 6pm) and often sell out.
