Original Oyster House in Spanish Fort, AL, about 5 miles from Mobile, First time I'd ever had fried oysters (or oysters of any kind) and although I've tried them at various places since, nothing compares to the deep, rich flavor of the fresh fried oysters there.

Each October for almost 40 years the Chincoteague, VA, Chamber of Commerce has their Oyster Festival at the Maddox Campground on the island.  For the price of a $30 ticket (gotta get them early, because they sell out quickly) you can have as many raw, steamed, single-fried, fritters etc. as you can eat.  My brother and I go almost every year.  An absolute must for oyster lovers.

The fried oyster po-boy at the Olema farm house restaurant and bar in Olema (Pt. Reyes area of Marin, county) Northern California. Their oysters are from nearby Drakes Bay. Best I've had-anywhere!  Check out their menu.

We love Gulf Oysters in almost any form. our Glee Club session last year in Mobile gave us the chance to sample those wonderful shellfish in many forms at several places in Alabama and Florida. Supurb eating at really cheap prices !!
  I'll single out Wintzells Oyster House for recognition...$4.95 for a dozen icy raw on the half-shell served with a 16 oz beer. A man could do well with $50 and the time to enjoy a meal like that !

Fried Oysters are one of my favorites! Gulf Oysters west of Plant City, Fl. about 15 years ago. ...I have no idea of the name of the palce...it was a local seafood joint and the oysters were cheap!!!!!My brother finds the best road food by looking at parking lot when he travels, looking for the local pick up trucks....that's how I found this place.

Thanks for the lead in Morehead City.

Just a few days ago we had the pleasure of lunch at Ellas in Calabash, NC.

As recommended by several knowledgeable roadfooders,  I ordered the platter of fried seafood. The platter consisted of about a dozen small fried shrimp, a small fried filet of flounder, and about a dozen fried oysters. The little shrimp were excellent - lightly battered and needing no sauce at all. The flounder was good with a bit of tartar sauce. The oysters were outstanding with just a squeeze of lemon. 

Actually, I prefer my oysters raw with a bit of mignonette sauce, but those fried oysters we had at Ellas taught me how good they can be in the right cook's hands.

I should add here that, as mentioned above by other posters, Wentzell's in Mobile, Al serves oysters right up there with the very best I've ever had - we pigged out on raw oysters there and had a sample from the plates of other roadfooders of fried, Bienville, and Rockefeller and they were all very good accompanied by generous amounts of cold draught beers. 

Cheers, John

Twice a year the South Millville Gun Club in NJ has a ham and oyster dinner.  They buy the oysters in buckets and bread and fry them right there.  You can eat as much as you want.  The platters of hot, freshly fried oysters keep coming to your table.  They have sides but after attending 4 or five of these dinners, I couldn't tell you about the sides but the oysters are great.  Not too much breading and fried just right!

There's a place in Lexington, KY, called "The Ketch" and they have excellent oysters.  I wish I lived near the ocean, but that's as good as it gets here and it's pretty darn good.  I like to make them at home with a nice cornmeal batter and spices.

My favorite are home fried- I can eat as many as I want.
 
My dad's uncles would fry dozens of oysters for Christmas Eve supper in the 1950's & 1960's in West Virginia.
 
I fry oysters using their recipe with a few tweaks, I don't have amounts, just ingredients:
 
Select oysters
flour
cayanne
hot sauce
eggs
saltine crumbs
oil
 
Place in 3 flat bowls:
Flour, pepper, & cayanne
slightly beaten eggs, dashes of hot sauce
saltine cracker crumbs
 
1/2 inch oil in frying pan, medium high.
 
Dredge oysters in flour,  then egg mixture, lastly  crumbs.  Fry oysters until golden brown on both sides.
Serve with homemade french fries, coldslaw, hushpuppies.

I live on the gulf coast, so I have had many great fried oysters.  My favorites are the one's  my grandmother or mom fried.
 
Now, the worst oysters I ever had:  Mo's, Cannon Beach, Oregon.

I will put my Apalachicola fried oyster platter or Po-Boy up against any.  The oysters don't get any better than the local ones here.  Very lightly battered & fried or served in our Award winning Killer Seafood Simmerin' Sauce.  I get mine from Buddy Ward Seafood aka 13 Mile Brand.  Delivered fresh every day!

I will couch for Michael's oysters.  I was there about a year and a half ago with the Roadfood group headed up with Cajun King.  The oysters were super and they were battered very good and tasty.

Mr. Smith,
 
How can you, a moderator, endorse a post which is a blatant advertisement?

I dont agree that this is advertising-there are many roadfooders that are fans of this restaurant, and Michael has a personal rapport with all who enter his establishment. And even if it is, others have tooted their own horn on this site...

Doug, I can only report my personal experiences.  I was there with many Roadfooders a while back and I can assure you that all enjoyed their meal.  I believe it is of value to other readers to report such experiences.  I have since been back and found it equally as good as the first time.
 
I also believe Michael knows enough of us that he can report the good news that he was selected as one of the best. 
 
I understand your concern but if I were Michael, I would want to report that kind of news.  It is not often that one of our roadfood joints make that kind of list.

Checked out their menu and for seafood like that you can't beat those prices! That Grouper looked outstanding!
