Quality Crab & Oyster Bah
The Absolute Best Seafood in Chicago
For a prime taste of New England at its most nautical, Quality Crab & Oyster Bah is the closest you’ll come to the real deal without having to deal with the Boston airport. The dark, cozy, multi-level Lincoln Park restaurant feels like dining in the hull of a snazzy ship, with lots of polished wood, checkered tablecloths, and all the maritime parafernalia you could ask for, with oars, fake fish, and boat motors doubling as wall decor. Come hungry, ‘cause portions are substantial, with plates, bowls, and buns overflowing with clam chowder, creamy blue crab dip, and Alaskan king crab legs. As the name implies, crab takes a rightful starring role, best exemplified by the chilled blue crab fingers (basically the fanciest fish sticks) with mustard sauce, and seafood rolls that augment lobster with king crab and jumbo shrimp in a decadent mayo-based medley. Finish with their famed triple-layer coconut cake.
