Where to Find Oysters Now, Mapped

View as Map
Gilhooley's in San Leon
| Gary R Wise

Since oyster season started last week and because the weather is already lending itself to cooler water temps and plumper bivalves, we've assembled a map of great places to find oysters. Classic raw bars, fancier establishments, laid-back seafood joints and everything in between are on the map. The emphasis is on great oysters, good prices and the occasional michelada. The season should peak in March, but it's starting now. Here are the places to go for an extensive beer list or a nice wine pairing with your raw oysters.

Pappas Seafood House (Lil Pap)

Copy Link
Blue Point oysters are $6.95 per dozen right now. Hard to beat that price, in this area, with their selection of craft beer.

Captain Tom's Seafood and Oyster Bar

Copy Link
Cheap oysters, micheladas and a kitschy boat building: This is a fun spot for good Gulf oysters.

Liberty Kitchen & Oyster Bar

Copy Link
Gulf and Pacific oysters are on the menu at this Heights-area spot. Its upscale sister location might have just opened in the Galleria area, but this original location is slightly cheaper and much more casual for oysters and fried-oyster-topped gumbo.

Christie's Seafood & Steaks

Copy Link
It's (arguably) the oldest family-owned Houston seafood spot, and one with fantastic Gulf oysters. They've been around long enough to know what they're doing.

Gilhooley's Restaurant & Oyster Bar

Copy Link
Misho's Oysters just down the road from this famous oyster bar supplies the bar with the finest, fattest Gulf bivalves. Gilhooley's is practically synonymous with great oysters.

Danton's

Copy Link
Well-priced oysters pair well with the best gumbo in town at this Museum District classic.

Pappadeaux Seafood Kitchen

Copy Link
Blue Point oysters and cheap drinks at happy hour offer up a great value. Plus the desserts here will make sure you leave full and satisfied.

Goode Company Seafood - Westpark

Copy Link
With an emphasis on Gulf oysters, you'll be having the plumper bivalves at this laid-back Houston classic.

Brasserie 19

Copy Link
This stunning River Oaks restaurant serves up oysters from the Gulf and the Pacific coasts and has an extensive wine list to pair well with your dozen.
Of course the highlight of Philippe Gaston's menu here is the lionfish and other delicate sea specimens, so some might be surprised to know that it also stocks up on fat Gulf oysters. Head to this raw bar inside of Haven for a treat with great cocktails to boot.

Monument Inn

Copy Link
This La Porte classic offers up an all-you-can-eat buffet that includes oysters. Plus, they serve alligator regularly.

Moon Tower Inn

Copy Link
Moon Tower has the occasional oyster hours, so you'll want to make sure they're on sale before heading there. Certain Sundays they will offer free oysters; look them up on Facebook for hours. Head here when you want a hard-to-find brew with your bivalves.
