Oysters and Seafood Sausage c/o Sansom Oyster House

On a Saturday I was without plan or company, but it was a lovely day and I knew a walk and a treat of some kind were in order. I decided to throw fiscal caution to the wind (mainly because I recently received my tax refund) and go to Sansom Street Oyster House in the middle of the day, when I knew full well that the Buck a Shuck option would be barred. I ordered their rosemary lemonade, which was fantastic. Really just strangely tart and savory with just enough sweetness mixed in. I recommend.
I ordered a dozen oysters, half of the Kusshi variety and half of the Little Shemogue. As I tend to, I favored the west coast Kusshi to the east coast Shemogue.

I also tried the restaurant's seafood sausage. Didn't dig it. Wouldn't recommend.
Completely gluttonous and luxurious. I do not regret it.

Do they still have smoked mussels there? I had an incredible meal there like 10 years ago while in Philly visiting family. Still stands out, even with some pretty incredible meals since then.

And to answer both of your questions, the ownership and management of the spot has certainly changed since your experience there. Their current menu has sauteed mussels, but I'm not sure about smoked.
