Oyster Roasts

For fall visitors wishing to try an oyster roast...

Morgan Creek Grill at the Isle of Palms Marina has announced that every Saturday thru December they will be having fire roasted oysters 4-8pm. They will also have chili and big screen TV's to enjoy ball games.

There are many oyster roasts in the area that give their proceeds to charity, so you will want to check local papers to see if there is one of these events you can attend. However, if you can't find that type of event during your visit, this may be an alternative.

That is a great idea. I tend to forget about them, since I am on the opposite side of town. :-(

Any indication of when local oyster season is likely to start this year? As I recall, the harvest sometimes starts in October, but is sometimes delayed into November.

Don't forget the Fire Dept roasts on Sullivans. Those are my favorites.

OK. I've answered my own question. The 2012-2013 South Carolina oyster season has officially begun, and runs through May 15. I'm ready for an oyster roast!!!
