Food Dude Reviews More Raw Bars in Myrtle Beach
The first review the Food Dude wrote caused the biggest stink, and that's never a good thing when you're talking about shellfish.
At issue was the debunking of the "r-month" myth, which states that oysters can only be eaten in months that include an "r" (September through April). Consumption of summer oysters will make you sick quicker than you can order another dozen.
It's a great theory, except it's completely untrue. As long as the oysters are properly refrigerated after being harvested, you can enjoy them on any day that ends in "y." I caught some flack from r-month conspiracy theorists, but I was too busy slurping down oysters to listen.
But perception is reality, and the perception is that it's oyster season. I'll use any excuse to suck down a dozen, and the start of September is as good a time as any. I like them straight out of the sea with a splash of hot sauce, but you may want to try these half-dozen oyster hot spots:
This popular locals hangout specializes in steamed oysters, but try them fried Calabash-style too. Nothing goes better with a Sunday afternoon of NFL football than its all-you-can-eat oyster roasts.
Dirty Don's has doubled down in downtown Myrtle Beach, opening a second location on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, just blocks away from the original on 21st Avenue North. These Key West-style oyster shacks serve them up steamed by the dozens, including their famous weekend oyster roasts from 1 to 3 p.m.
Plucked fresh from the mud just down the road in McClellanville, these South Carolina clusters are unlike traditional oysters. They are smaller, saltier, juicier, and most importantly, fresher, making them a favorite among those with Palmetto State tastes.
You can't beat these monsters from the waters of Appalachacola Bay, served up old school - on a bed of ice with drawn butter, crackers, cocktail sauce and a lime. Enjoy them as part of a Maryland-style steam kettle filled with crab legs, sausage, red potatoes and corn on the cob.
You've gotta love a place where the bartender shucks them right in front of you and pours you a cold beer to wash them down. Oysters are 50 cents apiece during happy hour with discounted drinks and drafts. Try an oyster shooter.
The Original Shuckers on Third Avenue North in downtown Myrtle Beach has spawned a second location at Broadway at the Beach. Both offer sweet raw oysters on the half shell, and they're only 55 cents apiece during happy hour from 4 to 7 p.m. on weekdays.
