The Ultimate Boston $1 Oyster Guide, Spring 2022

Where to find dollar oyster deals in and very close to Boston

View as Map

Nothing says warm weather quite like devouring oysters while drinking something refreshing and lounging on a patio. Updated for spring 2022, here's the Eater Boston guide to dollar oysters in Boston (and very close by).

A few notes:

  • While this map is kept as up-to-date as possible, there are no guarantees in the world of dollar oysters; restaurants might change their offerings at any time, and readers are encouraged to confirm with a restaurant directly before making a special trip for the sole purpose of eating dollar oysters. Please email boston@eater.com if a deal needs to be updated or removed from this map.
  • Each listing includes every day of the week that the deal is available, written out fully ("Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday" rather than "Monday through Wednesday"), so if you're on a computer, you can hit control-F or command-F, depending on your system, to quickly scan through all the listings for a particular day of the week.
  • Feel free to head over to the Eater Boston Facebook group to discuss all things oyster and clue other readers in on your favorite deals.

A version of this map first appeared in 2012 and has been updated periodically since then. The date of the latest major update appears above; smaller updates occur frequently during the spring and summer and less frequently during the rest of the year.
