Cove has Gulf oysters on the half-shell for just $1

See also

Cove, the quaint restaurant-within-a-restaurant at Haven, which specializes in raw preparations, has quite a deal for local untreated favorite: Gulf oysters on the half-shell for just $1. At least they were a $1 last weekend, and the server said that there were no plans to change the price, though it could change at any time.

Befitting a well-regarded seafood spot, these were no typical $1 oysters, but rather meaty selects from Galveston Bay served with a terrific chile-spiked mignonette and an actually interesting cocktail sauce. These were both the best Gulf oysters I have had among several restaurants recently, and the best accompaniments. And, the cheapest price, too.

Though Cove has a lot of diversions, these inexpensive oysters are worthy of a visit in themselves. Cove also sports a happy hour from 4:00 to 7:00 from Monday through Saturday. The oysters will not be any cheaper, but other temptations will be.
