This place is always busy. Yet everyone is friendly and happy. The food was fresh and perfectly prepared

Looks like a little diner and then bam-the freshest clams and oysters on the strip. The decor is great inside and the service outstanding (with lots of people waiting to be discovered in LA); sit in the sun or shade, inside or out, and the bar or table and the wait is worth it. Soup was savory and my only complaint is the fried basket has WAYYYYY to many Squid (cheaper I know) and not enough oysters or shrimp. Great people watching.

It was very delicious with fast service!!!!:) Strongly suggest if you like sea food. You must order lobster with pasta.

Went there in our last night in LA. There was a 20 minutes waiting queue, but it was worth waiting. Great and fresh oysters. The waitresses are very kind and helpful. We ordered fresh oysters, the fried seafood entrance (oysters, shrimps and squid), and ahi tuna, they were all great. Ordered the "just hooked" fish for main entrance - it was delicious! Really worth visiting the place!

After a few hours pedalling our little buns off on rented bikes, the Blue Plate Oysterrette looked too good to ride by. Well situated overlooking the water, sun shining , and with the word Oyster
in its name we knew lunch was to be had there. My wife is not an oyster fan (she likens them to something that comes out of your nose) but I cant get enough of the little buggers. On our waitress's advice a mixed dozen large oysters were soon on the way. Boy did I get a shock!
When she said large she meant LARGE. Large and breathtaking!!! Served with 3 different
dippers they were fantastic. My beloved had the Chicken ceaser salad but she was not very impressed no anchovies and tasteless by her reckoning. I had the linguini and clams in a white wine sauce and it was very good. If you love oysters do yourself a favour and check it out.
Very busy at night, but usually pretty easy to get into for lunch they have a good selection of beers and wines perfect after a long bike ride. The staff were knowledgeable and very
efficient
