ISO seafood restaurant open for lunch on Sat.

I just checked the Johnny's Half Shell website and was very sad to note they are no longer open for lunch on Saturday (haven't been since they moved to N Capitol St). Is there something similar in DC that is open for lunch on the weekend? It needs to be close to metro. Geez, I was so looking forward to having a fried oyster po'boy. Thanks!

  1. You should check out Hank's Oyster Bar in Dupont Circle. They are open for lunch on Sats. and you can sit outside if the weather is nice. You might even be able to get a fried oyster sandwich although I would suggest the lobster roll.

    You might want to check to see if Acadiana is open on Sats for lunch as well because I know their lunch usually includes an oyster po'boy during the week. (Plus you can get a delicious trio of deviled eggs!!!)

    1. Depending on your price range, try Oceannaire (nr Metro center), Kinkead's (nr Foggy Bottom), or gasp! Legal Seafoods on 7th St (nr Gallery Place).

        Thanks so much - we're going to try Hank's (if it's good enough for Drew B. it's good enough for me). I plan to try Oceannaire in the near future (love Kinkead's but I thought they were no longer open for lunch on Saturdays).

          Enjoy! Def. try the lobster roll if you can...the sides are great as well, especially the mac and cheese and sugar snap peas.

            Hank's has a brunch on Sat-Sun from 11-3. Was there at noon on the 19th -- a beautiful Saturday. Place didn't start filling up until 1. Had some sparkling wine with the Snow Hill oysters (unbelievably awesome!), and the crabcake eggs benedict. Perfect meal. Just perfect.

        2. Strongly recommend Sea Catch in Georgetown. They do not offer a fried oyster po-boy though.
