oysters in Baltimore

I already have a few ideas from this board, but would like more input on best oyster places in Baltimore (with good brew would be even better)

  1. Ryleigh's in Federal Hill. They always have a great oyster selection and carry a variety of local and national beers. Depending on when you go (happy hour and certain nights during the week) they have great deals on their oysters.

      Ditto Ryleigh's. They are $1 for a limited selection from 3-7 weknights. One night, and I'm not sure which, the special runs til 10 or something.

        Mama's on the half shell in Canton Square is another option.

    2. I like Faidley's raw bar. Not a great beer selection, but you can wash down your oysters with a Heineken there.

      1. For variety (regional and otherwise) it's got to be Ryleighs. The rest of the menu doesn't suck either, plus, you can sit down, unlike Faidleys. If there's somewhere else in Baltimore to get west coast varieties (gigas or sikameas), I'd like to know where that might be.

        For local "flavor" - a dozen Chesapeake's at Faidleys.
