The difference between the pretty okay-est Chicago oyster bars and the BEST Chicago oyster bars? One has oysters, and one has cheap oysters. These are those latter ones, 19 spots shucking deliciously wallet-friendly bivalves.
Score half-priced oysters daily between 4-6pm at this Lettuce Entertain You seafood haven. Offerings usually include a variety of both East and West Coast bivalves and are best washed down with... more oysters, specifically the aquavit-based Oyster Shooter cocktail.
Devour as many fresh $1 mollusks as you can handle every day from 3-6pm at this Michelin Bib-Gourmand recipient.
If pre-gaming a whole animal feast with $1 oysters on Mondays at Frontier is wrong, you don’t want to be right.
Every Tuesday through Saturday, this casual wine bar offers a $1.50-per-oyster happy hour deal between 5-6:30pm.
