Where are the best oyster houses or bars in Los Angeles? I am have been to the Redondo Pier and while the price was nice I didnt find the quality all that impressive, and on the flip side Watergrill was amazing but the price limits you in the amount you can get in one sitting. Does anyone have any suggestions?

  1. The Hungry Cat!

    (Especially now that they have a raw bar. I believe they serve food until 1am.)

      i loooove the oysters at Hungry Cat- ice cold & delicious. Also another place that surprised me with their oysters was Ocean Ave. Seafood in Santa Monica. Definitely worth checking out on the westside...

    2. The Water Grill has a sister restaurant in Santa Monica, Ocean Ave. Seafood that has a nice raw seafood bar that features oysters and has a good happy hour with reduced prices.

      Another option is Gulfstream which is owned and operated by the same group that has Houston's and Bandera. They also have a raw bar and oysters make up a big part of what they serve there.

      1. another option is happy hour at ocean ave seafood.

        1. King's in Calabasas has a terrific oyster selection (usually 7 or 8 varieties) at prices that are reasonable -- for oysters. King's is also part of the same conglomerate as Water Grill, and I would assume that they use the same purveyor.
