Downtown. 153 E. Bay St. 577-5755

We’ve been jamming the doors at this extremely popular downtown oyster bar since its opening last year and in the absence of perennial crowd favorite Bowens Island, they were able to snag a Best Oysters crown this year. The F&B guys found the place first and the crowds quickly followed, because they serve some really fine stuff in a fun, laid-back atmosphere that goes late into the night. A full bar of cold beer, a chalkboard of daily shellfish, and the best sliders in town keep the place rocking and the citizens of Charleston elbow-deep in salty juice and cocktail sauce.
