Oysters might not be local to Dallas, but we have a lot of great seafood restaurants around town that offer seafood from the East and West Coasts, and the Gulf! We personally love East coast oysters - Blue Points and Pemaquids are some of our favorites. But what’s even better?! An oyster happy hour of any kind! We are breaking down where to go get a great deal and celebrate!

Hudson House Oysters

Hudson House oozes East Coast coastal bistro vibes, and we love it for that reason! Since one of us grew up in Connecticut and another went to school in Maine, this place is as good as it gets when it comes to fresh oysters in Dallas. This eatery offers happy hour every day from 3pm to 6pm with half-priced oysters, burgers, and $10 martinis!
