the Oyster Bar in Studio City
It's not an oyster bar. It's a divey bar with good drinks and decent yet not great food. The food is Italian pasta and seafood dishes like linguini clams, chicken parm, etc. Large servings, entrees all under $20. It gets a large crowd of regulars (including us) and the crowd tends older (50's+) although all ages do show up. As to the oysters, they do have raw oysters but only one variety typically, and they make oyster shooters also. The owner Herb and his son Scott are generally around chatting up the customers. It's as casual as can be and don't expect anything especially sophisticated.
