Ocean House Oyster Bar & Grill

49 N Riverside Ave, Croton-on-Hudson

(914) 271-0702;

The thing that makes Ocean House so wonderful could easily sink a restaurant lacking its culinary integrity: It’s downright tiny, so you will wait for a table (demand is high and reservations are not taken—though there is a sign-in waiting list after 5 pm); menu items disappear throughout the night as Chef/Owner Brian Galvin’s fresh stock dwindles; and there’s no alcohol served (it’s BYOB). But you won’t give a soft-shell crab about the table wait, as to eat here is to feast on the county’s most expertly prepared seafood. (We especially like the daily changing blackboard oyster specials and the sesame- and pepper-crusted yellowfin tuna.)
