First I ordered a dozen oysters, then I ordered six more, and then six more after that. The quarter-size Olympia, "Samish Sweets," and Malaspina varieties were that good.
Yes, the seafood is delicious, but Renee Erickson's oyster bar also offers seemingly simple small plates that keep the tucked-away dining room reliably packed. [Eater 38 Member]
With seven oyster varieties daily, W&C is a noshers paradise, not a dinner house, so plan accordingly. Then plan to wait, as dozens crowd the line ahead of you, and reservations arent accepted.
Pristine shellfish displayed on a gleaming zinc counter are the main event at this handsome Ballard oyster bar. The shucking itself is a work of art. More places to eat like a local: tandl.me/12ufz7c
The Mustache Ride is their best drink!
Perfectly selected, perfectly chilled oysters- beautifully shucked right before your eyes (if you sit at the bar)...order a glass of bubbly and you are pretty much in heaven. Get there early.
Oysters are half-off from 4 to 5 p.m. and 25% off from 5 to 6 p.m.
This is a great joint : yes you have to wait - plan it out. Staples and Fancy serves a good negroni. W&C : Oysters - Steak Tartare - Blood and Sand
The check is delivered to your table on a scallop shell. I challenge you not to think of the three seashells from Demolition Man while paying your bill!
Everyone says the oysters are great, because they are, and the steak tartare is the best I've eaten anywhere, and I like steak tartare.
"Of Shoes & Ships & Sealing Wax, Of Cabbages & Kings, Why The Sea Is Boiling HOT & Whether Pigs Have Wings..OH Little Oysters!!" A Little Alice In Wonderland & A LOT Of AMAZING!!
Try the Treasure Cove oysters if they're on the menu. Salty and refreshing. Great clams too!
Mussels are spectacular.All desserts are spectacular -- zucchini cake particularly so, believe it or not.
Fresh simplicity defines chef Renee Ericksons food at the Walrus and the Carpenter. It also describes the cocktail menuthe creation of her partner Jeremy Price.
The Chevre from The Little Brown Farm is amazing and a delicious dessert paired with the fruit pate!
YOU MUST TRY the Little Brown Farm Chevre (goat cheese to die for)!
Order drinks and oysters, finish up with the cheese plate. Great ambiance, get their early on the weekend or go during the week.
Great ambiance and great selection of oysters
About a dozen oyster varieties representing the West Coast, from California to Alaska, are piled into wire baskets, topped with ice, and labeled with chalkboard signs.
Snagging a table at The Walrus is no easy task. Arriving alone cuts down on that wait dramatically and puts crispy fried oysters and awesome vegetable-foucsed dishes into your more immediate future.
