Where can I buy fresh Oysters in their shells in Nassau County?

Hi chowhounders,

I live on the South Shore of Long Island in Nassau County (Hewlett to be exact). We have a fish market but as it caters to mostly Jewish/kosher clients, they don't sell much in terms of shellfish. My husband is a shellfish fanatic and I'd really like to spend some money on great shellfish to eat at home on his birthday. I have been unable to find Oysters (or any other high quality shellfish) near my home - any suggestions? I drove past a fish market in Oceanside the other day but couldn't stop in...

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Try
    Artie's South Shore Fish Market
    4257 Austin Blvd.
    Island Park
    516-889-0692

    Excellent stuff--Artie catches a lot of it--and there's a casual restaurant on the premises as well.

      Jordan's in island park. I have had their oysters and they are good. You can buy them whole and shuck them yourselves or they will do it for you and pack it in ice.

      The place you mention is Phil's - right by A&S -- very good too. South Shore Fish market -- the person mention above, I hear has a great fish market but I was not impressed with the restaurant. For resh seafood, I always love Jordan's./
