Oysters/other good seafood on way to Olympic Park

We're visiting Seattle for the first time this weekend and are planning to take a drive from Seattle to Olympic Park on Saturday, anyone have any good recommendations on places to get oysters or other good seafood on the way? Thanks.

  1. I would hit Elliott's Oyster House right down the street from the park (about 1 mile up on the waterfront). Fantastic selection of oysters, great oyster bar, really good salmon and local beers. You'll have a great time!

      Wait, do you mean the Olymic Pennisula? The Olympic Park in Seattle or Olympic National Park on the pennisula. Sorry. I may have steered you wrong.

    2. By "Olympic Park" do you mean the Olympic Sculpture Park affiliated with the Seattle Art Museum, or do you mean Olympic National Park on the Olympic peninsula?

        Sorry about that, I now realize I was unclear, going to be driving around Olympic Peninsula and checking out Olympic National Park.

          Xingh's in Shelton is an amazing Chowhound destination. Do not miss. Along with Oysters, order the curry mussels.

              I third the nomination for Xinh's in Shelton. Her preparation of pan-fried oysters are some of the best I've ever had. If you are fond of mussels, her curried mussel dish is not to be missed. Thanks for clarifying your destination, skb104. Leper and bluedog67 beat me to the punch!
