According to the Oyster Recovery Partnership, oysters can satisfy more than just a hunger craving.

To find some of the most decadent oysters around, pay a visit to one of Wisconsin’s awesome oyster bars and restaurants. Here are the 9 best!  

Tempest Oyster Bar, Madison, WI

Complete with an ocean motif, Tempest Oyster Bar is a classy place to enjoy bites of seafood.

LURE, Sister Bay, WI

The clever name of LURE doubles as a fishing metaphor as well as a customer-seducing tactic. Be lured into the restaurant by the happy hour deals and stay for the delicious cooking and cocktails. Both raw and grilled house oysters are available, served with horseradish, cocktail sauce, and lemon, or garlic butter and parmesan, respectively.

St. Paul Fish Company, Milwaukee, WI

Raw oysters may not be your “thing”—we understand. Maybe tasting cooked oysters in an oyster po’boy at St. Paul Fish Company is more up your alley. Otherwise if you are into raw oysters, check out the oyster bar with more than 25 oyster options available to order.

The Del Bar, Lake Delton, WI

An elegant supper club since 1943, the Del Bar offers many oyster dishes on the half shell. Try Blue Points, Delaware Bay, Kumamoto, or Baked Oysters Rockefeller. Not only is the supper club elegant, but it also was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright’s protégé, James Dresser. Talk about impressive.

Salty’s, Fond du Lac, WI

Salty’s dubs itself as having a “Key West vibe” that’s evident in the decor as well as in the website design. It’s time to relax, let loose, and enjoy some seafood at Salty’s, where everything is covered in rich colors and beachy decorations. Try the Blue Point Oysters for a half dozen or a dozen—ditto the Oysters Rockefeller.

Harbor Fish Market & Grille, Baileys Harbor, WI

Harbor Fish Market & Grille is a seasonal restaurant located on the waterfront. With a long intricate history, the restaurant is filled with character and inspiration gleaned from the original owner, August Schram. Schram opened the restaurant in the early 1900s, but the oysters are still served fresh. 

Third Coast Provisions, Milwaukee, WI

Leading off with the mantra, “Seafood. Reimagined” this seafood hot spot combines creativity with tradition. They offer an entire menu dedicated to oysters, titled the “Oak & Oyster” menu. Try some oyster shooters or oyster sliders to change it up a bit.

Lake Edge Seafood Co., Madison, WI

Go there to eat dinner, leave with some groceries. How about that for two stops in one? And not just any groceries, fresh ones. Take home oysters, various types of salmon, beef cuts, and more. Lake Edge Seafood doesn’t skimp in either branch of their business. The dining area has a relaxing atmosphere, and the market food is all fresh.

The English Inn, Green Bay, WI

The English Inn is an intriguing dining location. Beginning in Fish Creek, Wisconsin, the restaurant has the feel of a place filled with fond memories—even for those who have never been. Oysters are served on the hors d’oeuvres menu, along with escargot, crab cakes, and the usual lot of seafood appetizers.
