in Business by

The new Oyster Bar in Old Town Bluffton hosted a grand opening and a ribbon cutting initiated by The Hilton Head Island-Bluffton Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, June 7th from 4 to 7 p.m.

There were complimentary hors d’oeurvres served, including clam chowder shooters, mini crab cakes, pineapple jalapeno coleslaw and cornbread, as well as happy hour drink specials.

Jimmy Seoules, owner of The Oyster Bar, also owns Agave Sidebar, right next to the new restaurant.

“We love Bluffton, and couldn’t wait to bring this fresh, new concept of a cool, sophisticated oyster bar to the town,” said Seoules. “We pride ourselves in being unique, and offering specialty menu items that you can’t find anywhere else.”

The Oyster Bar has an extensive list of offerings including West and East Coast oysters, and provides local oysters when in season. Although oysters are their specialty, they also offer top-shelf caviar, raw shellfish, local seafood specialties and regional favorites. Watch the chef prepare meals at the open-air raw bar, or enjoy a drink at the outside bar.

The Oyster Bar is located at 15 State of Mind Street in the Old Town Bluffton Promenade. It opens every day at 11:30 a.m., closing at 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and staying open until 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
