Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 942-1828
Visit Website
This Bishop Arts fave has been serving up fresh oysters on the half-shell to eager slurpers for years, and they’ve maintained their status as one of the city’s best spots to order a dozen and a few beers. The restaurant offers a rotating selection of seasonal oysters and Gulf standbys, which you can get for $1.95 and $0.50 each respectively on Friday nights during happy hour.

2. 20 Feet Seafood Joint

1146 Peavy Rd
Dallas, TX 75218
(972) 707-7442

Serving up oysters in a more casual spot, 20 Feet Seafood Joint is equally dedicated to quality as its swankier counterparts. A half-dozen of Blue Point oysters is an excellent entry point to the world of oysters, and reasonably priced at just $11.

3. Gemma

Copy Link
2323 N Henderson Ave
Dallas, TX 75206
(214) 370-9426
Visit Website
The best time to score oysters at Gemma is when most other restaurants are getting ready to close up shop. This Henderson Avenue restaurant is open until 1 am, and serves up a market selection of oysters for only $2 each. Chef Stephen Rogers is obsessed with ethically sourced food, so you know he’ll handle your bivalves with care.

4. Palapas Seafood Bar

1418 Greenville Ave
Dallas, TX
(214) 824-3000
Visit Website
At Palapas Seafood Bar on Lower Greenville, you’ll find freshly-shucked Blue Point oysters sourced from New York at extremely reasonable prices (about $16 for a dozen) even when it isn’t happy hour. Here they're served with lime wedges for squeezing instead of the typical lemons; that addition of acidity along with a dab of hot sauce makes for a seriously good oyster-eating experience.

5. Pier 247

247 W Davis St
Dallas, TX 75208
(214) 948-3232
Visit Website
You don’t have to pay a lot of money for good quality, well-handled oysters, and Bishop Arts’ Pier 247 is proof. Gulf oysters on the half-shell here are served simply with standard accompaniments, and a whole dozen will cost you less than $15.

6. Proof + Pantry

Copy Link
1722 Routh St Ste 102
Dallas, TX 75201
Also cheffed by Kyle McClelland, Proof + Pantry has one of the best oyster deals in town on Thursday nights. On “Champagne Thursdays,” you can get oysters for a quarter each with the purchase of a $10 half-flute of Ruinart champagne. You can also splurge for the full glass of Ruinart, at the cheapest price in the country, for even more cheap oysters that you know are going to be impeccably good.

7. TJ's Seafood Market

Preston Royal Shopping Center, 6025 Royal Lane
Dallas, TX 75230

Of course, Jon Alexis knows exactly how to serve oysters to hungry diners. The fish cases at both TJ’s Seafood locations are always full of an array of oysters from across the country. Dine in and try a few varieties with their oyster sampler, or ask the knowledgeable fishmonger behind the counter to shuck a few dozen to take home for your next party.
