National Oyster Day is coming up on August 9th, here we rounded up the top places to get your oyster fix in Atlanta in 2017.

1 Kimball House

This Decatur spot is what comes to mind when the word oyster comes up in conversation. Offering a full menu of freshly-shucked oysters, Kimball House is the best way to Celebrate National Oyster Day. Make sure to hit this Decatur spot on weekdays from 5 -7pm for "Raw Bar Hour" where they sell all of their shukable nibbles half off.

2 The Optimist

This restaurant, owned and operated by Chef Ford Fry features sustainable seafood and, our favorite, a separate oyster bar. Head to the oyster bar off the main dining room and choose from a revolving selection of more than 10 breeds of oysters. Choose to eat them on on ice or watch them roast in the wood-fired oven. Either way, they are delicious and are served with house-made saltines, cocktail sauce, hot sauce, mignonette and grated horseradish.
