Doc Magrogan’s Oyster House is a new restaurant in University City, at 3432 Sansom Street.

“The concept’s a classic 19th century oyster bar, and we have a huge raw bar selection, about 20 oysters daily,” says owner Dave Magrogan (top photo).  “We have crabs, shrimp, scallops, and then we have a full dinner menu with fresh fish from around the world.  We normally carry about eight to ten fresh fish a day, and we also have an extensive wine list and a craft beer selection.”
