Many a local will recommend Leon's Oyster Shop for many a reason. As its name implies, Leon's specializes in oysters, and the shellfish appear on the menu raw with saltines, char-grilled, fried Rockefeller, and as oysters casino. Indeed, Leon's does oysters a service in offering them with simple, pure preparations. But Leon's has so much more in store than oysters. Settle in to a cozy indoor table or sidle up to the long bar space, and dig into your oysters, following them with a 2-piece, half, or whole fried chicken order. There's fried fish, too. For a wholly sea-sourced meal, opt for the Fry Up--fried fish served alongside fried oysters or shrimp. If the weather's ideal, take your oysters to the outside patio, set next to the street with charming string lights and potted plants.
- Best for Seafood Because: Leon's is an ideal spot for anyone who loves fried chicken, oysters, and/or hushpuppies. That usually covers just about everybody.
- Best for Oyster Bars Because: The entire Leon's experience is thoughtful and at times unexpected with every detail--from the simple char-grilled oysters and fried chicken to the lively, buzzing atmosphere.
