When it comes to oysters, it's all about geography.
So here's a geography lesson for you: The Pacific Northwest is heaven on a half-shell.
Here are some of the top oyster bars in the area.
A subdued 1950s-era elegance combined with a bit of Rat Pack rakishness makes this an inviting venue for slurping oysters, steamed clams, sliders or the chowder du jour. Cocktails and wine. Dinner daily; happy hour and late-night menu.

Seattle, WA 98116
Known since 1988 as a reliable venue for surf and turf - and especially oysters - this amber-lit homage to Old New York has kept its standards up and its menu current without banishing old favorites. Go for such entrees as the filet Roquefort, alder-planked salmon, Hawaiian opah, pork chop with juniper-blackberry jus and, for lunch, the Kobe beef burger. Open for lunch and dinner.

A great place to be a tourist, especially if you're not. Savor the Pacific oyster sampler, Copper River king salmon, mussels in buttery wine broth with salty fries, fine smoked salmon, swordfish, wines and desserts.
