I'm looking for a good retail seafood shop on eastern Long Island with good oysters. Anyone know anywhere besides The Seafood Shop in Wainscott? Thanks!

    I'll try to give you one in every town:

    Brewsters in Hampton Bays.
    Mastic Seafood in Mastic (and they will have the best price).
    Stuarts in Amagansett.
    Clamman in Southampton.
    Claws on Wheels in Easthampton.
    Duryea in Montauk.
    St Peters Catch in Montauk.

    All are open now and have excellent seafood.

        Except they're on the North Fork. I was assuming Wainscott and vicinity.
        Actually Mastic Seafood, Stuarts/Claws and Duryea are wholesalers too. They buy the majority of their fish locally on the South Fork.

        Cor-J in hampton bays. This is the best fish market on LI hands down. They usually have only two types of oysters though....an east coast and canadian. Both are delicious.

        I eat raw with a mignonette of sushi vinegar, a drop of sesame oil, sugar, minced shallot and cucumber chilled. YUM!!
