Papa Joe's Oyster Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: You decide. Sit down with a dozen of the slippery bivalves, raw on the half shell. You can doctor them with lemon or hot sauce, but tip your head back and let them slide---and enjoy the fresh maritime zephyr that defines the Eastern oyster liqueur. Papa Joe's is a fun waterside seafood-and-steak joint with a serious emphasis on local oysters, raw or broiled. It's nothing fancy, as that would get in the way of the pleasures of hot fried shrimp and cold lite beer, served with a waterside view.
