Raw Oysters in Birmingham

I would appreciate any advice on a great place to eat oysters in Birmingham. Thanks!

    1. Ocean tends to have the largest selection. Dyrons only had apalachicolas last time I was there. Fish Market tends to have 3-4 varieties at a time and I like sitting at the bar eating them with a beer. McCormick and Schmick usually has a happy hour special where they are usually a $1 each.

      1. re: Dax

        Highlands usually has around four selections as well, and they are uniformly excellent.

        1. re: pinotboy

          I second the Highlands recommendation!

            To add to all those listed above, Satterfield's in Cahaba Heights normally has 3-4 varieties on their menu.
            Supposedly Courtyard 280 has a reputation for good oysters, but frankly I've never had the cahones to give that a try.

      2. I second the Fish Market. Raw oysters is one of the few things they do right.
