My wife and I have been going to Oyster Boy for years. It's always a friendly welcoming place that has the added benefit of really knowing their stuff. Whether you do oysters or other seafood, there is something for everyone.

Cold oysters are their speciality - having between 8-12 varieties - an excellent choice - you should definitely visit
