Description: BELLTOWN. True to its handle, this waterfront establishment serves views of bustling Elliott Bay along with its oysters ­ more than 30 varieties.

Lobster Shop ­ Dash Point

6912 Soundview Dr NE, Tacoma, WA 98422 253-927-1513

Description: TACOMA. This waterside restaurant on Tacoma's Dash Point dates from the late '70s, when a local entrepreneur converted a former grocery store into a small seafood restaurant. Thanks largely to word of mouth, the business expanded and he was able to open a second location at the Port of Tacoma. Over the years, the menu has grown and the venues have gotten nicer, but the quality cooking is still there. Dishes like Australian rock lobster tail with sweet cream butter, crab cakes and tiger prawns, and breaded, pan-fried canal oysters earn raves.

You'll also find grilled wild salmon, dry-aged New York steaks, and broiled Australian lobster tail. Make sure to try the bacon-tinged clam chowder, a house specialty.

Ray's Boathouse

6049 Seaview Ave NW, Seattle, WA 98107 206-789-3770

Description: SHILSHOLE. A quintessential Seattle experience is having a meal at Ray's. Views of the mountains and the water, especially in sunset's glow, thrill diners almost as much as the cuisine. While many dishes have Asian flair (like pan-seared scallops in green curry or kasu-marinated black cod), others revel in simple preparations, like oysters on the half-shell, crab cakes, and grilled wild salmon. The downstairs venue offers upscale dining; the cafe upstairs is a bit more casual. A wonderful wine list ensures that you'll have a terrific vintage to complement the food.

411 University St, Fairmont Olympic Hotel, Seattle, WA 98101 206-621-1984

Description: DOWNTOWN. The downtown crowd has plenty to choose from when it comes to restaurants, but the options narrow when the subject of "the best oysters in town" is broached. This Seattle standby holds its own in the face of myriad newbies that have popped up over the years. Clubby and suave in an old-fashioned way, Shuckers takes oysters seriously, whether steamed, pan-fried, or just plain raw. For those who don't dig shucking, options like beer-battered fish and chips, seared ahi tuna with wasabi salad, fried calamari, and the signature Northwest seafood chowder are wise bets.
