Captain Benny's Half Shell Oyster Bar

Don't be put off by Captain Benny's boat-shaped restaurants that litter the city; these low-key seafood joints are some of the best places to grab inexpensive, reliably good Gulf oysters in season. Sit at the "bow" of the ship inside and they'll be shucked right in front of you. The rest of the year, Captain Benny's specializes in Cajun standards and fried seafood platters that will please even the pickiest eaters.
