The Darling Oyster Bar review image

The Darling Oyster Bar

The Darling Oyster Bar is known for being one of the most beautiful restaurants in the city and for serving a very over-the-top Bloody Mary with shrimp, hushpuppies, a king crab leg, and a lobster claw all sticking out the top. Beyond ludicrous brunch cocktails, this spot on King Street also has lots of exposed brick and white tile, as well as a huge bar that’s great for a quick drink or eating your weight in seafood. Come for dinner with friends, split the ceviche and some oysters, and finish with the fried shrimp basket.
