So Shucking Good!

The River Seafood & Oyster Bar

You know that age-old adage; if a restaurant is consistently packed with guests it’s probably a good choice.  Well, it’s definitely true here at The River Seafood & Oyster Bar.  It’s been open since 2003, with the goal of serving the freshest available local, sustainable and organic cuisine. 

I highly recommend making reservations especially on the weekends and if not just be prepared to wait by the bar for a long time! Also, did I mention, they have daily happy hour specials from 4:30pm-7:00pm; that include half price oysters and nightly drink specials!

The oysters here are perfection! They’re very fresh and shucked when ordered.  The oysters come with 3 different homemade sauces; I recommend trying all 3, as each pairs well with different oysters.  Along with the regular menu, The River offers a daily specials menu that also includes an abundant list of the various oysters they have that day.  Try to order oysters from different areas so you can taste the differences in each.
