Seafood in Seattle??

Foodman53 | Apr 25, 2007 10:32 AM

My wife and I are planning a summer trip to the Pacific Northwest(Seattle/Portland/Victoria/Vancouver) during the middle two weeks of July...and can't wait!! Being from Florida(Jacksonville area), I'm curious about one thing. The price of such seafood as oysters, crab, and shrimp seem to be astronomical in your area, as compared to what we expect here. From reading travel posts and online menus, "oyster bar" oysters are, at minimum $2 to $3 each up there.....where down here, anything over a buck each would be considered armed robbery!!. Being "oyster afficiandos"(sic) that we are, we know that you grow some of the world's best.....but, our Apalachicolas, Florida Keys, and Chesapeake bay O's aren't shabby, either!!

During our visit, we'll "pay the frieght" a time or two...but, I'm not sure that I can really enjoy myself, thinking that I 'm being overcharged! With that in mind, are there some oyster/crab bars in that area, that the "locals" go to..and, not take such a dent in the wallet!!

Thanks a bunch!!
