Good place for raw Oysters & fried Oysters

Hey guys,

I've been searching online for good raw oysters. So far found a couple with good reviews like Rodey's.

As for good fried oysters, there's this place near Granville island someone was telling me about that comes with a shot of lager or something. Anyone tried this before?

Please give your input and reviews for good raw and fried oysters

For fried oysters, and only if you feel very adventerous, try The Only Seafood restaurant on East Hastings and I think it was Carall.

I gotta agree, Blue Water is good. Rodney's isn't too bad either. Plus for me is that they're on my walk home from work so I don't need to drive there.

Thanks guys for all your help. I've heard good stuff for Joe Forte's as well.

bcrdukes - what do you mean by only if you feel adventerous? Do you mean the restaurant is ghetto and nasty?

I wish I could just walk to these places too.

Yes, the restaurant is ghetto. It's been around for I think close to, if not, over 100 years at the same exact location. It has all the same furniture, seating arrangements from way back and it's nasty because it's in the middle of skid row and bums etc. walk in and out all the time but this place has by far, the best tasting seafood platters and fried oysters for the money you'll be paying. Of course, you can't compare to any of the "finer" restaurants some people have listed in this thread.

A few years ago I happened to stumble into that place. For some reason I was passing through that area on foot ... don't ask what I was doing.

Ordered the seafood platter and the red clam chowder. Everything was ... as I anticipated ... greasy and decent tasting ... but for some reason I thought it wasn't worth the little money I paid for it. Maybe it was an off day, but I didn't really "get it".

+1 For Joe Fortes. Me and the wife have gone there and their seafood is solid.
Havent been to Rodneys Oyster shack yet, but reviews seem like they rock too. Thats probably next on the list for me.

joe fortes for fresh oysters.

been to rodney's, its ok too, they make a pretty good caesar.

the BEST time of the year for oysters are during the fall to winter season, September, October, November, December. Just remember the months that end in BER and your set.
