Best seafood in town

Always the best fresh seafood. I almost never order from the menu and ask for the recommendations of the day. Try as many different variety of oysters as possible!

It compelled me to write a poor review about them and reminded me why I love Oyster Boy so much! Oyster Boy may be a small place but the atmosphere is awesome, service is always great, and the food is DELICIOUS. Depending... More

Wow. Freshness everywhere. Great service, great menu, and the best oysters I've had EVER! The restaurant is no frills, but don't let that fool you. The quality of oysters, plus the variety, will leave u feeling like a walking oyster. And the service is second to none. Friendly, helpful and full of great oyster knowledge. I can't wait to go...
