Oysters on the beach

cecibean May 30, 2007 04:42 PM

We are looking for a place in the Santa Monica, Redondo, Malibu area to have some raw oysters with all the fixin's. A view of the ocean would be great but not necessary, just a really great, fresh raw bar.

Thanks in advance

    I had some wonderful raw oysters at Enterprise Fish Co. in Santa Monica last week.
    Captain Kidd's in Redondo just north of the Pier never disappoint.

      head directly to quality seafood on the redondo pier. no ambiance but great selection of oysters and other seafood.

        Ocean Avenue Seafood, Santa Monica, has an oyster happy hour most nights with good selection and great prices.

            Ocean Avenue Seafood has the best oyster bar in Santa Monica. They always have at least 8 - 10 different oysters from the east and west coast. Always fresh! They also have a great happy hour with great prices and pretty cool cocktail list. You should definitely check it out.

              big fan of ocean ave.'s happy hour, but a HUGE fan of quality seafood in redondo. happy hour will feature one kind of pacific oyster for $1.50, but quality has crazy variety with stuff from the east coast and elsewhere.

                We ended up going to Fathers Office and they just happened to have oysters so got them! But we are definitely heading to Ocean Ave and Quality Seafood soon.
                Thanks for the suggestions everyone :)
