Boston Hound looking for a good raw bar in south beach for this weekend. I am not looking for fancy seafood entrees...I am looking for oysters, fried clams, scallops, etc.
Any recommendations?

Also-any good places for a Friday happy hour?

    We ended up at Monty's...it was exactly what I was looking for.
    Very long line for the raw bar, but worth it!

        montys at miami beach marina- happy hour every weekday from 4-8- great stone crab claws and shrimp with fun atmosphere. they have oysters and clams, but coming from boston, i wouldn't recommend them. good fish sandwich and bar food.

          Don't think you're going to have much luck finding that kind of seafood place on South Beach. There are several places that do raw bar (Nemo is probably the best, but definitely a "fancy seafood entree" place) but none I can think of like what you're describing (i.e., Tark's).

          You may want to try Le Bon on Lincoln Road - Belgian, with a focus on mussels but I believe they also have a raw bar too. Great deal 5:30 - 7:00 you can get a 1/2 kg pot of mussels and fries for under $10.

          Haven't been in ages, but I bet A Fish Called Avalon on Ocean Drive also does a decent raw bar. Again, more of a "fancy seafood entree" place though.
