King St Oyster Bar Restaurant Review

: Right on King Street in historic downtown Leesburg sits this welcoming, casual place that looks like it lives on a waterfront: distressed wood; wooden tables and floors; overhead light coverings that slightly resemble lobster traps. Even the bar area with its wooden counter and stools appears seaworthy. Besides the brews (there are plenty of local brewed beers), folks come for the very fresh seafood and oysters, the latter brought in daily from the East and West coasts. Select an assortment for appetizers or go whole hog and order the Mermaid Tower, a composite of lobster, shrimp, oysters, crab and crab legs, and raw oysters. Mains obviously focus on seafood --- we recommend the King Street Po Boy with crispy fried oysters --- but patrons can also opt for chicken and a filet mignon instead. Choose from plenty of sides. The go-to dessert is the Bananas Foster cake.
