When in Vegas, seeking out unique dining options is a must, and oyster bars are a popular option.
Unfortunately for those looking to slurp, oyster bars can be difficult to find on the Strip and Fremont Street.
With that in mind, I thought it would be helpful to point out where you can find oyster bars in Las Vegas both on the Strip, and nearby, where there are some popular options found in locals casinos.
For each of the oyster bars in Las Vegas referenced, I’ll be sure to link to the menu so that you can easily compare your options.
Note that pricing can change frequently. I recommend scoping out your preferred restaurant’s menu before making the trip.
Oyster Bars on the Strip
Water Grill at Caesars Palace: Found in the Forum Shops at Caesars Palace, Water Grill offers an impressive raw bar with oysters sourced from various locations on both the east and west coasts. Costs hover in the $45 per dozen range, give or take a few bucks.
Joe’s at Caesars Palace: Also found within the Forum Shops, Joe’s serves oysters in the half shell for both lunch and dinner. As options change frequently, you’ll need to consult your server to gauge that day’s selection and price.
Other Oyster Bars in Las Vegas
Big Sur Oyster Bar at South Point: Located south of the Strip, South Point is a short Uber/Lift ride from the main resort corridor and offers some pretty great dining and gambling value when compared to the Strip.
Their oyster bar serves pan-fried oysters, Louisiana gold seal oysters, and oysters Rockefeller. The price of a dozen Louisiana Gold Seal Oysters lands at $29.
In addition to oysters, Big Sur also serves a solid array of seafood including mussels, shrimp, clams, crab cakes, and fish of various types.
Big Al’s Oyster Bar at The Orleans: One of the better-reviewed oyster bars in Vegas, Big Al’s has earned an impressive 4.5/5 stars on TripAdvisor after 470+ reviews. On the menu, you’ll find oysters in the half shell, oysters Rockefeller, clam chowder, and other seafood selections.
Big Al’s also offers a lunch special that runs Thursday & Friday from 11:30 am – 3 pm entitling you to save a few bucks off any dozen oysters or clams.
Station Casinos Oyster Bars: Some of the most popular oyster bars in Las Vegas can be found in Station Casinos properties sprinkled across the valley.
I’ll personally never forget my amazement that the Oyster Bar at Palace Station had a line stretching as far as the eye can see down the casino floor at 4 am on a random Saturday morning. Lines are usually indicative of a great experience.
The reason Stations oyster bars are so popular is in part due to the value they provide. Guests can score a dozen oysters in the half shell for $24.99, which is a pretty darn good price when compared to others on this list.
The Palace Station Oyster Bar specifically has earned an impressive 4.5/5 stars on TripAdvisor after 500+ reviews. Below, are links to each of the Oyster Bars found in Station Casino properties.
Hopefully, I was able to help you find an oyster bar on the Strip or nearby in Las Vegas that works for your tastes and itinerary!
