Nothing beats slurping down extremely fresh oysters, especially during the hot summer in Austin. Despite the city’s landlocked status, there are plenty of places for the shellfish. There are single briny bivalves available, sure, but why stop at that when there are dozens of oysters ahead? Try ’em all.
Here is Eater’s guide to the best bets for raw oysters in Austin. There are classics from Clark’s Oyster Bar and Perla’s, solid happy hours from Parkside, wood-grilled and raw options from Lucy’s Fried Chicken, old-school markets like Quality Seafood and Mongers Market + Kitchen, smoky takes from Pitchfork Pretty, and many more. This update includes Oak Hill seafood restaurant Shore Raw Bar & Grill.
