It was very busy when we arrived this evening. Service was a bit slow but that was because there were lots of helpers but appeared to be only 1 person taking orders. They were out of some selections of beer. What we had to eat was fine but the menu does not match what is on the web site. No oyster stew or roasted oysters on the menu. A lot of deep fried items and raw oysters. We were surprised at only 2 choices that had oyster - raw and deep fried. Prices were fair. We probably won't return because of the limited menu. Also, the web site does not have a way to contact Dylan's to provide feedback.

Their small, focused menu sets the tone for your dining experience. Here you can find the freshest oysters in the half shell in the area, with the cleanest shuck. So good, in fact, it's ruined my local oyster happy hour spot in Montgomery County! If Dylan behind the bar shucking, you're truly in for a treat. Visit on Sundays for shuckers choice $1 oysters! Lovely service: attentive but not overbearing.

Had a good dinner here with a lady friend. The menu is small-ish, but I love a good oyster stew. The oyster selection only included 4 varieties, but it was well curated. I will say they got my date's salad wrong, but she ended up liking what she got better than what she ordered. They have great ambiance though.
