Best live oysters in Tampa

laethia | Jan 15, 2013 09:53 AM

Hi all, we're going down to Tampa for the weekend and could use some recs on where to get the best live oysters - we don't make it down to seaside spots very often! From scouring the chowhound forums, we've come up with a few options (Island Grille and Raw bar for HH, Oystercatchers for brunch), but would love some updated advice on the following:

1. Dinner place?
Central Ave Oyster Bar in St. Petersburg - read one review about being served dead oysters...
PJ's in St. Pete's Beach
The Crab Shack in St. Petersburg
Rick's on the River
Any other suggestions for nice, juicy oysters?

2. Any good seafood places in Ybor City?
