  1. Shuckers, in the Fairmont Hotel one block west of the Hilton, has great oysters. They are open until 10 PM during the week and 11 PM on Friday and Saturday.

      if you are partial to those big plump Totten Virginicas, the bar at Union (at 1st and Union) is the best place to get those oysters. Or take a cab to Nishino (32nd and Madison or so) for some Kumamoto's and Nobu-style food. Taphouse Grill (6th between PIke and Pine) has ~140 beers on tap (do a flight of 5, and get some kalbi short rib while you're there), or if you can get over to W Seattle, try Beveridge Place pub for some cask ales, barleywines etc.

        Barleywino, you always make great contributions to this site but you may want to spell out west when you are talking about West Seattle. As you know the W Seattle hotel is a short walk from the Hilton and I think if out-of-towners asked the staff at the Hilton about directions to W Seattle that's where they would end up.

          great catch, thanks! sorry about the potential confusion

        I think Shuckers is the best oyster bar in town. You'll have a wide selection and the servers will give great descriptions of each different type. They also offer a good variety of local wine and beer.

          I put away about 3 dozen oysters at Brooklyn when i was there.

          There was a sampler that had two each of 6 different oysters, and then I picked my favorites for the next two dozen.

          I can't wait to get back to the Northwest. I'd probably hit the worst oyster bar in town and be happy. I grew up on the Texas Gulf Coast and have eaten all along both coasts. Seattle has my favorites oysters.
