Oyster House Guide to Pairing Cocktails with Oysters

Brickhouse Punch

There are very few things in the world that make as much sense as oysters in the summertime. It’s easy math; it’s common sense; it’s comfort and splendor at the same time. Oyster House on Sansom is ready for summer.

If you go for happy hour, you’ll get $1 oysters, $3 drafts (PBC Kenzinger), $3 shooters, and $5 cocktails (Brickhouse Punch). And that’s all well and good, but sometimes, when you’re feeling good, and life’s finally got your back, spending some time and money on better oysters and better drinks will really set you free. Oyster House has a new cocktail list, and pairing their liquor with the ocean liquor is the best way to take advantage of everything that makes the sea-to-land experience such a beautiful indulgence.

Get a Group Together for a Dump Dinner at Oyster House


Back in November, Oyster House owner Sam Mink added Dump Dinners to his restaurant’s offerings. It was supposed to be just a holiday thing but he’s kept it going. Available with 48-hours notice and designed for groups of six or more, the dinner is a fun way to feast. Steamed clams, mussels, Maine lobster, meguez sausage, kale and potatoes are all steamed up in a massive pot and “dumped” onto your newspaper-covered table.

The dinner is just $25 person and for an additional $15, the hungriest can add a chilled seafood raw bar sampler of oysters and clams on the half-shell. Complement the gluttony with a $20 per person all-you-can-drink option of Narrangansett pounders, house red and white wine and Oyster House’s signature Kelly’s Punch.
