You are lucky to be there during oyster season. Seek out Bowen's oyster house. It's worth the drive. Might want to call ahead though, this is also wedding season and wedding parties will book the whole place out.

I only have one negative thing to say about the food options in Charleston. Do not come here to eat raw oysters. The restaurants charge between $2.75 - $3.75 each and they’re super small…like really small. I just tried a dozen at a second restaurant and 3-4 of them may have been the size of quarter. However, nothing else negative to say about the place. Don’t let this keep you away! Great place with plenty of cool vibes!

Ha, the oysters there are from my buddies oyster farm, they’re called perky sea-cups, and they are in fact small. Those particular ones are cage raised. But the vast majority of local oysters are taken from Cape Romain National Wildlife Refuge and are some of the best in the US

This is terrible advice. The restaurants get oysters from all over and they are different sizes which the menu or your server will explain. Just like pretty much every other place that is known for oysters. And there are lots of great oyster happy hours where you can get them for $1, which are usually James River, medium to large in size.

re: Charleston recs
Not about to get into a pissing match with you bro but from what I get often in south MS vs what was served to me twice in Charleston wasn’t even comparable. You win, I’m out.

re: Charleston recs
My point is that restaurants here and elsewhere serve a number of different oysters from different areas of the US and Canada, that are different sizes as well. That's what it's like at Darling, O Bar, Rappahannock, Delaney's, 167 Raw, Pearlz, Nico, and Amen St. Perhaps there are steak places or non-seafood places who will only have one type of oyster on hand or something
