Pensacola Oyster Stops?

HaagenDazs Nov 8, 2006 01:40 PM

I'm looking for advice on Pensacola oysters. I'll be headed down there for Thanksgiving to visit some family and I hope to partake in my share of bivalve killing ;-) It's obviously not too far from Apalachicola, so I'm hoping to get some nice fresh ones! Recommendations for oyster bars and/or grocery stores or farmer's markets that have good quality product are appreciated!

      Thanks! We went to Joe Patti's, got a 25 lb box and had the freshest oysters I've ever had - no kidding. These babies were so full and plump, some of them were almost too large to eat! Never fear, we ate them all in about an hour :-)

        OMG! I've done that too. Joe Patti's is fantastic! Got the 25 lb and worked on them by myself. It took me the whole day, felt very gluttonish but very satisfied.
