Oysters in St. Pete area

Staying around St. Pete Beach and looking for a good place for raw oysters. Any decent oyster happy hours around?

  1. Billy's Stone Crab and Island Grille Raw Bar in Tierra Verde both do happy hour specials on oysters. I like P.J.'s on St Pete Beach; I'm not sure if they do specials, but the prices are reasonable. Salt Rock Grill in Indian Shores has a nice selection of oysters, but they are flown in not local.

      Went to Island Grille and had happy hour oysters that were quite good. Did liunch at Billy's today with the family and was pleasently surprised at the quality of the food. Billy's is now doing 50 cent oysters all day. Thank you for the recs. Need to check out PJ's next.

        Now that I have tried the oysters at Billy's, I can report that Island Grille is best by far. It's oyster are served freshly shucked to order rather than shucked in advance and covered with ice like Billy's. Happy hour is 4-6.
