Oyster Happy Hour at Whole Foods Fair Lakes - Wednesdays

Hanging out in a grocery store may seem odd. But if you stop by Whole Foods (Fair Lakes) on Wednesday evenings you will see a whole lot of people doing it. That is because on Wednesdays, the grocery store offers a very popular raw oyster happy hour featuring great specials on raw oysters, steamed shrimp and really cheap cans of craft beer. And the best part is, no tipping allowed at Whole Foods.


$12 Per Dozen Raw Oysters
($6 half dozen or $1.50 each)

$12 Per Pound Steamed Shrimp
($6 half pound)

$2 Craft Beer Of The Day
(chosen by the staff)
$4 Glass Of Wine
(chosen by the staff)

The special is available only on Wednesdays between 5pm-8pm and is dine-in only. You basically get oysters for $1 each so long as you stick to ordering in multiples of 6. The steamed shrimp is also delicious and is $12 per pound. And the $2 per can of craft beer is top notch.

I don't know much about the different kinds of oysters but you sometimes have a choice of the variety you are getting (may have to ask). This is quite a popular special so sometimes it is hard to find a seat. There is also a chance that they run out, so it is always good to arrive early.

The oysters and the shrimp are both delicious and the price of $2 for a can of beer (typically a "domestic craft" like a Sam Adams or Sierra Nevada) is an added bonus. It may even be worth it coming here and getting only the beer. (wine is $4). The fact that tipping is not allowed is just icing on the cake for a cheap post-work hangout.

So if you don't mind "chilling" (literally) out in a grocery store (totally different from a bar atmosphere), you like discounted craft beer and you are a big oyster fan, then check out Whole Foods Wednesday Oyster Happy Hour.

Note: The seafood restaurant station is located in the back left corner of the store. They have bar stools and a few high top tables. They also offer happy hour at the Sports Spot bar located in the front of the store (more info)
