Oysters on the half shell on Whidbey Island?
DC hounds here for a week for a family reunion. We're enjoying fantastic fish, Penn Cove mussels, and great NW craft beers...but having a helluva time finding anyplace with local oysters on the half shell.
We're flexible on everything else - location, atmosphere, price point, etc. Any tips on where to go?
(I've searched this board and the Pacific Northwest board already, as well).
I had them at Front Street Grill in Coupeville a while back. Might want to check with them to see if they're still on the menu.
Tobey's in Coupeville does shooters. The oysters served on Whidbey are usually from Samish Bay, further north (Blau or Taylor).
Thanks, @Lauren, @Brunhilde, @Kaleokahu. We tried for Front Street Grill yesterday, but they were closed due to a repair issue (kitchen fan). Toby's wouldn't let us in (strict 21+ policy meant we couldn't bring the baby inside). We enjoyed some Penn Cove Selects at Prima this afternoon on the deck with a couple of Georgetown Brewing Co. draughts - fantastic! Thanks, all.
