Packwoods Oysters? Thu, 10/21/04 1:36 PM (permalink)
When I lived in Winter Park, Fl. in the early 80's, my wife and I used to go to a place called Packwoods. It was an all you can eat steamed oyster restaurant.
You sat at long picnic tables and they would throw baskets of steaming oysters across the table. I believe they even raised their own oysters.
The wife and I cannot remember exactly where it was. I say just south of Daytona. I do remember it was out a winding sand road through the swamp to get to it.
Has anyone else been there? Is it still open? Where was it exactly?

        Maybe my math is off here but I thought the equation was:



        PACKWOOD


        +



        OYSTERS


        =


        INDICTMENT
