“A Peck of Good Eating”

Sunny Side Oyster Bar
Ranked #3 of 28 Restaurants in Williamston
Cuisines: Seafood
Restaurant details
Reviewed 11 January 2013

If you love oysters, come to this place. You sit at a rectangular table, the center open so the staff can serve the shrimp or scallops and shuck cold or warm fresh oysters by the peck. In a small bowl I mix the traditional red sauce, horseradish and hot sauce. I like my oysters cold and raw and that's how they are. The man on the inside shucks the large oysters in pace with my downing them. My wife had scallops and shrimp with a small bowl of butter for dipping. Downing oysters here is every bit as enjoyable as downing them in the Acme Oyster Bar in New Orleans and the oysters are just as fresh and just as large.

The most fabulous oyster bar anywhere in North Carolina. Food fun entertainment sometimes. Don't miss this place. Come off HWY 64 and put your name on the waiting list. You'll be glad you did. The place is old and quite historical & quaint. Don't expect fancy - instead expect delicious and you'll get that twofold.

steamed oysters and shrimp - they do all the work for you. Good beer and key lime pie. Very simple place - but who cares when the food is good?

One of only a handful of true oyster bars in the USA. Very well run but only open certain months of the year. An experience even if you don't eat oysters -- just go for the excellent ambience!
