Oyster deals?

I've been craving oysters lately, but don't feel like paying top dollar - does Oyster Boy still do buck-a-shuck (or anything like that) nights? Any other specials going on around town?

Worst case scenario, I go buy some and shuck them myself. But summertime is lazy time.

      I was told it was 5pm to close at Biff's.

    2. The lounge at the Intercontinental hotel on front has $1 oysters during blue jays games.

      1. Simple Bistro - which is fab @ Mt. Pleasant s. of Eglinton just opened up their second floor and offer up GREAT OysterBoy Oysters – a buck a shuck – I think its Thursday night to Sat. – you can always call them to find out – it’s a really cool little neighborhood bistro – with great food – and a great atmosphere ….Enjoy !

        1. Big Daddy's on King St at Simcoe does buck-a-shuck during their voodoo hours. I believe the hours run from 9pm onward and all day Sunday. They also have fairly decent and inexpensive appetizers during the Happy Hour Voodoo.

            Was just there for dinner last night. They no longer have Buck a Shuck due to increased costs!

              Is it just regular price all the time now?

                  Do report back :)

                  To clarify on the above discussion, Biff's website indeed states that the deal is available on weekdays after 5 p.m.

          2. I think the Windsor Arms does an oyster deal on Tuesdays.
