    I don't see why not! It would take some serious neglect and apathy to mess up something so magical that comes from nature, at the apex of flavour without having to do anything to it except not screw it up.

      Yes it's outstanding-the owner is a Rodney's alumnus who lovers all things Oyster and has a great little place going almost ended up there for lunch today in fact.

        You would think that it would be hard to ruin raw oysters, but you'd be wrong. I got taken out to The Boathouse at Westminster Quay for my birthday a few weeks ago. We ordered a dozen oysters to start and there were bits of shell in every one of them. We got comped for them but the damage was done. On the other hand, She Who Must be Obeyed and myself found ourselves in Oyster - Seafood and Raw Bar on Howe St. last Saturday in time for the Buck a Shuck deal and it was wonderful. Best oysters I've ever had at a happy hour price. They are going to be closing soon for renovations so I suggest heading down while you can.

          Do you know when they will be starting the renovations?

            Sorry, don't remember the dates. I think it was a week or two into April and they were going to close for three weeks. There's no mention on the website.

        I finally tried this place. I love it! Unsnobby service, impeccable oysters, decent beer. Great buck-a-shuck deal from 3-6 on weekdays and big selection of oysters.
