The inside of Ballard Annex Oyster House has a nautical situation happening that vibes pretty naturally with eating oysters and having cocktails, which is the only reason why you would come here. That, and the fish and chips, which at least have salt. The rest of the food is a big ol’ nope, and keep in mind that you might break a tooth and crack your filling on all of the shards of crab shell you discovered in your overcooked mac and cheese.
