Ryleigh’s Oyster Closing its Federal Hill Restaurant

| May 14, 2020 | 0 Comments

After 20 years in business, Ryleigh’s Oyster announced yesterday it would be closing at 36 E. Cross St. in Federal Hill. In a tweet, the restaurant said: “It’s been real Federal Hill. THANK YOU to all of our friends for the memories and your loyal support for 20 bold years! #BEBOLD.”

Owner Brian McComas declined to comment further on the closing.

Ryleigh’s, which is known for its raw bar serving local oysters, seafood, and crushes, still has a location in Hunt Valley.

Ryleigh’s Federal Hill location underwent a large expansion in the mid-2000s.

Ryleigh’s had not been open in recent weeks as restaurant dining rooms in Maryland were forced to close due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
