There are a few ayce sushi places around that do offer "fresh" oysters but I don't find them that fresh they are generally pre shucked and sit on ice thus loosing some of the flavour

Food was very good but was no one was full and very expensive.

We did not have any drinks too.
I go there for their happy hour and I find it expensive, nevermind for their regular price. LOL

Though I do eat like a dozen oysters to myself.. lol

Tried the Oysters @ Aki, a Japanese place downtown on Thurlow. The place is a real gem.

This was 5.50, which I thought was a pretty good deal. Fresh raw oysters dressed in their Ponzu sauce!

Boathouse also has happy hour, 3-6pm, $1/oyster.
There's also the recently opened RawBar on Howe st.
Oyster Seafood & Raw Bar also offers $1/oyster on Fridays during Happy Hour. Place is a little cramped but decent.

I usually go to Aki when I'm downtown. It really is a real gem.

I know this is a thread for fresh raw oysters (which I love), but as a side question, where are the best places to get Oyster Rockefellers?

Ebisu on Robson sells Royal Miyagi's at a very reasonable price and are guaranteed super fresh, we sell hundreds every night so we get new stock daily (inside note: from the same supplier as many "top-end" oyster bars)
People who pay a premium price for the same oyster are just kidding themselves into thinking it's "better". I've seen Royal Miyagi on the fresh sheet at Joe Fortes and Rodney's going for close to $3 per piece ($18 for half a dozen) and they can't possibly be any "fresher" than any other "good" restaurant unless they dive into the ocean to dig them up as soon as you place your order. Ebisu's oyster sell so fast, they are shucked only when you order them, they don't sit in the restaurant for more than hours at a time. Ebisu sells it for $16 for a dozen, during Happy Hour it's even cheaper, 99 cents per piece.

My 2 cents.

Oyster - Seafood and Rawbar was pretty good. $1/oyster all day from what the waitress told me, cool little spot, very few seats but I enjoyed the raw oysters! The $1 ones are not given a choice of which you get, but they will include some of the more expensive per oyster ones. Their $36 for 18 oysters will net you more of the fancy ones.

Miyagi's for a buck-a-shuck? NICE. When's your happy hour? Weekdays only?

I went to Oyster yesterday too. Daily happy hour 3-7pm, $1/oyster. Ridiculously small place, but very intimate.

there used to be a restaurant on Oak and 16th offers a lot of different oyster dishes and had a good selection of half shells .. I remember they made very good oyster rockfellers .. anyone here know which one I am talking about and where did they moved to or simply closed down?

Happy Hour runs from 4:30pm to 6:30pm, 7 days a week

I must make a point to go check out that "Oyster" place, sounds like a great little spot. As much as I love Ebisu I don't feel like coming back to the place that I spend 60+ hours a week to eat haha

Thanks for keeping happy hour past 6pm, it's hard to get downtown after school/work to make it on time. Oyster is really small, I counted 20 seats total.

Yep, I just posted it today!

At every Boathouse location, oysters are $1 each during happy hour 3-6pm, and may vary according to season and availability...



...
One catch is that a minimum $2.99 beverage must be purchased, which is easy to do as they have $4.99 drink specials everyday.

I'm never paying a premium for oysters again, happy hour is the true price! :P
