If you have strong opinions on east coast vs. west coast oysters, you’ll definitely want to check out this dinner and cash-only spot that’s been open since 1975. There are several preparations of oysters: on the half-shell, in a stew, or baked Rockefeller-style. You shouldn’t really come here unless you have your heart set on eating seafood, but that’s what makes it great—share a boatful of appetizers with your road trip crew or impress your oyster-loving date. The space feels like the hull of a boat meets a steakhouse, with nautical elements combined with white tablecloths and green pendant lighting.
