We are coming to the Savannah area for Feb. and March. One of the things I want to do is go to an Oyster Roast. Six years ago I went to one at a fire hall in Savannah. It was a fund raiser, I believe. I think the Catholic School on Tybee Island had one also as well as the Lutheran Church.
I have already subscribed to the Savannah Morning News and will carefully peruse the ads but would be nice to know ahead of time to make my plans.
Thanks in advance.

It's a shame you are not going to be in Georgia this weekend. We are having any oyster roast at our home. Then, the next weekend is a really big Oyster Festival in Mt. Pleasant, SC. We have gone to that for the last three years.

100% chance. Gulf oysters are available in Savannah nearly year round. Tradition says only to eat them during months with an 'r' in them, meaning cooler weather due to their reproductive cycle and disease organisms. But for some reason you can still get the ones from the Gulf.

Long story short: when you come here just go to a fish house, buy a sack and cook them on your barbecue grill.

No danger from petroleum contaminated Oysters?????? I was hoping for Atlantic oysters. Oh well! If no one is dropping dead from oysters I will continue to indulge!! Thanks for all the information.

There are also local oysters available. I thought you were specifically looking for ones from the Gulf.

When you get here, just look in the phone book (or online) and call the various seafood dealers and ask them for specific info. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, drive over to Bluffton, SC and buy some directly from the May River.

That is what I wanted to know. I'm too lazy and ignorant to cook them myself. Yum yum!
