    Ocean, Dyron's

      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.

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

          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.

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