Raw Oysters

Oyster Boy | Feb 25, 201210:37 PM

I had a dozen raw gulf oysters and a couple beers at Capt. Benny's on Friday night and enjoyed them immensely. The gulf oysters were medium in size, salty and good. I believe the cost was $8.00 a dozen. I've had them for double that price right across I-35. Although I didn't try them, they had three additional varieties. I realize this place is a minor chain and I didn't have the opportunity to venture further into the menu. That said, I really dug this funk little place and sitting at the bar inside the 'boat'. It was the first Fri. in lent and the joint was hopping. It reminded me of places I used to visit in Pascagoula, Pensacola, etc. and that was nostalgic. Where else can I get good raw oysters at a reasonable price?
