Any recommendations other than Lee and Ricks for Oysters on the half shell?

    Lombardi's Seafood Market has great apalachicola oysters. I know it is not a restaurant, but if you are willing to do the dirty work your self they are great and cheap!

      I used to really enjoy the ones at Mccormick and Schmidt.-I can't even recall if that restaurant is still there. It's a bit pricey, but delicious oysters...

        had the best oysters rockefeller at the frosty mug her in Mt dora. They aren't usually on the menu so gettem while they last. I think it's the sauce served with them that totally rocks!

        I think the Thirsty Gator in Winter Park has the best oysters I have tasted in Orlando. They are constantly shucking so they are fresh and its normally 50 cents an oyster so by far the cheapest I have found. I believe their website is www.thirstygator.com if you need to find them.

          I agree with the Thirsty Gator. Its a hole in the wall, but I guess that's part of the charm. Great Rock Shrimp as well.

          The Ale House has decent oysters as well that are resonably priced.

            The Oceanaire Seafood Room at Pointe Orlando has a good cold seafood bar that includes oysters. Cityfish in Thornton Park features east and west coast 'sters, too.
