Oysters Bergen County

Greetings, anyone have a favourite restaurant in Bergen for oysters on the 1/2 shell? Some old time places I know still do clams, but oysters appear to be less prevalent. Used to go to the place on 17 in Rochelle Pk and M & S in Riverside, but both of those are gone (and only mediocre). Assembly has them, as does the AYCE seafood spot in Little Ferry, but are either any good? Please limit responses to Bergen; I know I can go to the city. Thanks to all.

  1. Maywood Seafood Gourmet in Maywood-a nice(not fancy)BYO place.Not a lot of tables so a reservation makes sense.I go to Cape Cod every summer and have had many Wellfleet Oysters and this restaurant has not disappointed me r my wife

    1. re: daver

      Been there numerous times but never had oysters. Actually, have only been there for lunch, and it's usually just a quick, casual lunch so oysters aren't on my mind...good idea though as this place is very good. Thanks.

    2. Biggies clam bar in Carlstadt on rt 17

      1. I've ordered oysters at the Assembly...depending on time of year and what they have...and what I've ordered has been good.

        I also had a few different oysters at Park West Tavern in Ridgewood -- and they were good. One of my fellow diners is a large seafood importer -- and he liked what we had as well.

        Does Capital Grille have them? Oceanos?

        Off the top of my head, I can't think of anything else, but I am sure there are a few places around.
