    Who has consistantly good raw oysters? In the past two days I've been sampling. The Hightide is by far the best always. Worth the drive.

    1. Hightide, Okaloosa Island
    2. AJ's, Destin
    3. Stinkys
    4. Hurricanes.

    Sorry but Hurricanes Bar And Grill is consistantly bad.

    Hole in The Wall is a stop we make whenever we pass that way. They have a unique men's urinal.

    Been to the Indian Pass Raw Bar several times and they are awesome, just out of the way. Trying to find a consistantly good oyster bar in the SRB area. Love my oysters, crackers, tabasco, and cold beer at a reasonable price. Any other spots worth trying?

    We go to Gene's in PC. Gene goes to Apalachicola and picks them up himself. So you know they are the freshest.

    PS. They have no beef but they say you can bring your own. Just haven't done that. Their oysters are so good one doesn't need beer!

    To be honest you shouldn't find consistent oysters. It's kind of like the restaurant that never runs out of grouper.

    I still follow the R rule and will until oysters are extinct.

    I am old school too and eat my share of oysters in the cooler months. So I've been making up for a hot summer. Gonna try out some other spots. Try the High tide or what we use to call the "Dirty Bird" years ago.

    Ever been to Hunts in St. Andrews? Never had a small or bad oyster there.

    I do like Dusty's.. but really DISLIKE the road trip . The reason I like Hurricane is BECAUSE they are small. And close to the house.. plus if you arent satisfied with ANYTHING there they will make it good..and are ready to let you taste their oysters.. not taste half a dozen but one to see if you like them.

    Yes, many times until someone from this SOWAL site recommended Gene's a few years ago. Now I just pass Hunts up and go to Gene's. I have talked with people that actually live and work in downtown PC and they do not go to Hunts. They call it a tourist trap..ha, ha. Hunt's is good and a bit closer. But not worth the wait most days.

    They don't like it because, gasp, they might have to wait. Gene's is great, but the word is getting out.

    Went to Gene's Oyster Bar today for the first time and what a little hidden gem. They were serving Apalachicola oysters which to me are the best. Gene's reminds me of what old Florida is all about. Will definitely be back.
