The Zagat Review
“There will probably be a line” at this near-century-old “iconic oyster restaurant” in Uptown, but “it's all part of the experience” insist fans who bide their time sipping beer and watching “the fastest oyster shuckers on earth” prep bivalves for slurping or the fryer; though the “small, divey joint” seemingly “hasn't changed decor in 90 years” (the wall-to-wall tile boosts the “noise level”), the “real-deal seafood” “tastes like it just jumped out of the boat”; P.S. closes early Tuesday and Wednesday (at 2 PM); closed during the summer.
What To Order
Bring cash, and be prepared for the very humble presentations — they don’t feel the need to dress up their very fine oyster platters.
