Fried Oysters in Las Vegas?

I will be going to Vegas in a couple weeks and was interested in finding fried oysters or a oyster po boy. I think that Emeril's NO Fish House used to have it on their lunch menu, but it doesn't look like it is listed anymore. Are there any decent places that might have this? I realize it's hard to compete with a New Orleans oyster place, but there must be something worth trying. Thanks for the advice!

  1. Tides at Red Rock Station definitely has oyster po' boys, but I haven't tried them.

    1. I had an outstanding fried oyster appetizer followed by a huge seafood platter the Oyster Bay Seafood and Wine Bar just the other day. It's located in the Miracle Mile shops at Planet Hollywood and the prices are pretty reasonable for the quality of food that you are receiving. The restaurant is located directly across the walkway from the Tommy Bahama shop, The easiest way to get there is through the south entrance of the Miracle Mile shops on Harmon under the Todai sign. After entering the mall, continue towards the main mall area and it will be on your right side .

      3663 Las Vegas Blvd S, Las Vegas, NV 89109

      1. After November 14th you'll be able to get them @ Louis's Fish Camp @ Town Square.

        1. Rhythm Kitchen is a brand new restaurant that just opened a couple of months ago. It is located on Decauter Ave, just off the 215 beltway. Freshest cajun and creole food that you will find west of Louisana. They fly in fresh gulf oysters every week. Right now they have a Happy Hour where you can get fresh shucked oysters for $6 per dozen from 3pm - 6:pm M-F. Barbequed oysters for $4 for 6 during happy hour. Give them a shot

            kjs reviewed Rhythm Kithcen and wasn't as enthusiastic, but felt that the oysters were decent. I was wondering when there would be a follow-up post about it.

                The Hush Puppy on W. Charleston has fried oysters. Very underrated place imo.

                  I've never even heard of The Hush Puppy. Could you tell us more about it?

                Rhythm Kitchen may not be exquisite but it has good food, including the fried oysters, which are large and tasty, not like so many where you can't find the oyster amidst the fry. And you can get them as a po' boy. Rhythm Kitchen also as raw oysters. Avoid the BBQ oysters, as the sauce overpowers the oysters. However, the broiled "Rhythm Kitchen oysters" oysters, a house version, are excellent. Station Casinos' Tides, at Red Rock and Santa Fe Station, used to have fried oysters but, sadly, both have been replaced by other restaurants. I was pleased to hear that Hush Puppy has fried oysters. I haven't been there but have heard good things. It's a place that obviously used to be out of town but town grew around it. It's run by the parents of one of the owners of Rhythm Kitchen.
