Not sure how many 'hounds frequent oyster bars, but a classic "throwback" NC oyster bar - Sunnyside - in Williamston, NC (open for 60 years) has opened a second location in Garner, NC, just east of Raleigh. The one in Williamston is only open in months with an "R" in them, however the one in Garner is open daily, year round for dinner starting at 5 pm. The menu consists solely of oysters, shrimp and scallops. Either steamed or boiled. Mayonnaise based coleslaw is the available side item. You get crackers, cocktail sauce, drawn butter served from teapots, and horseradish. Cedar shavings on the floor around the shuckers. Great place for great food; nice bar upstairs. Located at 111 W. Main Street, Garner, NC.
