Best fried oysters near/on LBI

I've got a friend coming in from out of town who loves friend oysters (so do I). We're planning on spending a few days on LBI, and I would really like to take her somewhere where the friend oysters are excellent. Any suggestions? We are more than willing to go off the island. How about that seafood place in Leeds Point or Allens Clam Bar? Any other thoughts?

  1. Call Allen's Clam Bar first and make sure they have them that day - if they do, you can rest assured they'll be good! Even if they don't, you can't go wrong with either the fried scallops (best I've found in Southern Ocean County) or the fried shrimp...

      Sorry, on second thought, Allen's is in Burlington County...

    2. The place in Leeds Point is probably the Oyster Creek Inn. I've never had their fried oysters (and don't know for sure that they offer them). I have had a lot of oysters on the half shell there...

      Their telephone number is in the attached palce link.
