Looking for New England style seafood houses

Trixie Too | Sep 5, 2008 06:03 PM

Hi all,

My husband and I just moved to NoVA from metro Boston a month ago. In the last several months I developed a love of fried oysters. In the Boston area, I would just go to XYZ Fish House or XYZ Seafood Shack or something like that and get a box full of oysters (or fried clams, shrimp, etc.). You would just order S,M, or L box. This was all without going anywhere near the water. These places are in unassuming strip malls in the burbs and usually do a huge take-out business.

In NoVA, every time I eat out and there's fried oysters on the menu (Old Hickory Grill's were fantastic), they're generally artfully displayed on a plate with some sort of sauce. Are there any "fish houses" just serving seafood platters, boxes of fried fish, etc. in this area?

Want to stay up to date with this post?
