A Little About Little’s

A Love Letter to the Ocean

Welcome to Little’s Oyster Bar, located in the heart of Montrose. Our Executive Chef, Jason Ryczek, prepares decadent, hand-selected seafood dishes that are seasonally inspired and focus on freshness. Our menu offers a rotating selection of oysters, shellfish, and other offerings from the shore. Our caviar can be paired perfectly with your choice of cocktail, champagne, or vodka.

At our bar, enjoy exciting craft cocktails and a wine list with a special focus on European wines and bubbles. Our Certified Sommelier has crafted a perfectly curated list of wines from Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, and more.

As a tribute to our roots, we have repainted and restored the vintage exterior signage, which is a nod to the location’s opening in 1987 as Little Pappas Seafood House.

Chef Ryczek takes every opportunity to elevate and surprise guests. The team at Little’s takes pride in presenting a concept to Houston that’s new and refreshing – fine dining but not stuffy. Extremely high quality in all areas, yet comfortable. Just like Houston.

Come to Little’s Oyster Bar – we have a seat waiting just for you.
