Fan Favorite: Happy Hour Oysters

Marliave’s happy hour oysters is a meal and a deal that you cannot miss!  Come by between the hours of 4 and 6 pm and then again from 9 and 10 pm to dive into their endless, half-off oysters.  

Customer Review: “DOLLAR and fifty cent OYSTERS WIN! Marliave does not give you partially shucked, slimy, sandy oysters just because you came for their happy hour oysters. I appreciate that :)”
