    Great oysters. Shrimp and grits special was excellent.

    Right in the heart of the market, with a counter top and tall tables for casual oyster slurping. Always fresh and delicious.

    Great little oyster bar tucked in Union Market. Oysters and tartare were outstanding.

    Try the black cod if you aren't in mood for local oysters. It's nice, supple, light and not too expensive to boot.

    Get the Old Bay-seasoned steamed shrimp and, if available, pair it with Flying Dog Dead Rise ale!

    Rappahannock was an incredible pitstop between snacking on gourmet treats from every vendor. Snag a chair on a weekend day, and complete the experience with at least a dozen oysters and a cold beer. Read more

    Have to try the lamb and clams, and the seared scallops. But make sure to start off with an oyster shooter and 1/2 dozen olde salt oysters.

    It is better to only go with one or two people and not a big group because it is always VERY crowded
