    Poverty Pete and I enjoyed several plates of 'on the half-shell' at the Moon-River Brew-Pub one afternoon a few years back. Prices for the Oysters and draft beers were quite reasonable during their afternoon 'Happy Hour'.  On the waterfront.

    Thanks for the delicious link. They're not just chocolate, they're chocolate works of art.
    I know what I'm sending my friends for Christmas gifts this year.

    I'd try the Cotton Exchange Tavern for oysters, and not leave town without a visit to Leopold's Ice Cream:

    I second the motion on Cotton Exchange tavern. If it's an option, sit outside on the 2nd floor balcony and watch the ships come in. They often have nice oyster and drink specials in the early evening. if you can manage to be there on a weeknight, and especially in the cooler months, it's more likely to be peopled with locals who are happy to recommend other stopping places in Savannah. Pleasant place to stop in for oysters and a tall gin and tonic or a shandy.

    By the way, it pays not to be too snobby about food in Savannah. the most memorable bites can come from the strangest places. I haven't been back recently, but the best sea bass I've ever eaten in my life came via late night room service at the Marriott riverfront. In previous years, their chef was a genius. Business took me to Savannah about once a month for several years, and I always had to make myself go out for dinner when staying at the marriott. Don't know if that still the case....

    We went to Savannah for three nights and these are some of our findings. As far as oysters went, we tried them at Moon River Brewing Co. They were roasted and topped with pecan pesto. Sorry to say, all you tasted was the pesto.
    We went to Leopold's Ice Cream and it was great, of course. When you are in Savannah, please give the Crystal Beer Parlor a try, a great bar with lots to choose from with a great restaurant to go with it. Vinnie Van Go Go's has great pizza and be sure to drop by Chocolat by Adam Turoni. The smell of the shop alone is worth the visit.
    Our favorite from this trip was Huey's on the River. They are considered creole/Cajun, all four of us had something different and it was all delicious. Thanks for all the tips for our trip, can't wait to go back. It's always fun in Savannah.
