You know how some places are just known for their signature dish? Well, just like nothing quite compares to an authentic Philly Cheesesteak from downtown Philadelphia or a deep-dish pizza cooked fresh in Chicago, oysters are best enjoyed along the American East Coast. Hit the road in your RV rental and head to one of these oyster hot spots on your next RV adventure. 

Neptune Oyster

To experience a classic New England-style oyster bar, check out the renowned Neptune Oyster Bar in Boston. Along with a wide selection of oysters, the Neptune is a popular spot for its mouthwatering seafood entrées and yummy desserts. While the wait tends to be lengthy, spend the time watching the oyster shuckers in action or exploring the Italian North End neighborhood where the restaurant is located.

Eventide Oyster Co.

Check out one of the East coast’s most popular oyster spots at Eventide Oyster Co. in Boston. The oysters here are so fresh, the menu actually varies every day based on the daily catch. The original Eventide Oyster Co. is located in Portland, Maine, but the restaurant also has a convenient counter-service location near Fenway Park in Boston. Cruise America offers RV rental locations in both Boston and Maine to accommodate your route to oyster heaven.

Asbury Park Oyster Bar

For the best oysters in the state of New Jersey, have a meal at Asbury Park Oyster Bar. Located right on the Atlantic Ocean, this oyster bar is by no means over-the-top fancy, but the oysters are absolutely delicious. If not everyone on your RV road trip is a fan of seafood, no worries — there are plenty of tasty, non-seafood dishes available to order.
