Oyster values

In her Restaurant week roundup today, Devra First calls out B&G's restaurant week offerings, saying "In a city full of oyster deals, you might think a place specializing in them would get in on the action."


Where are the best oyster deals in town? Where can I get decent oysters for less?

      Yes, I believe they do Monday through Thursday until 6pm(?)

      1. re: southie

        Yes- Mon-Thurs before 6. We get 12 for $12. Chestnut Hill does this but not sure that the deal is available at all Legals-I would call and check first.

        1. re: emilief

          Natick Legal's does the 6 for 6 at the bar and if its after 6 , all you have to do is ask.

        I was surprised yesterday afternoon (Saturday) that Legals in Braintree was offering the 6 for 6 special. That was a treat.

      3. Marliave was doing $1 oysters from 4-6 p.m.; not sure if they still are.

        1. Rialto has 1$ oyster mondays
          Sweetwater Cafe supposedly has 1$ oysters all day
          Marliave does 1$ oysters from 5-7

            I second that Rialto has a great deal of $1 oysters on Monday nights.

            On Sunday nights, Myers and Chang offers $1 oysters (limit of 12) and $1 PBRs from 8-10 PM.

          2. McCormick & Schmicks also has a Happy Hour that serves 2 kinds of oysters for $1 from 3:30-6:30pm at the bar. I enjoyed them last week. The rest of the menu was also pretty good.

            1. 28 Degrees used to have $1/oysters from 5-7 pm. Going tomorrow night so I'll know if that's still the case.

                Sully, I almost wrote the same thing- but then I checked their website to be sure as I haven't been in awhile. They are now $2/oyster all night.

                  Oh well! We'll just have to enjoy the cocktails then and save room for dinner at DaVinci!
