The Oyster Bar's front window beckons both the seafood and brew lover in you. A cooler teases with oysters on the half-shell and cans of Boddington's. Inside, it resembles a seaside pub remodeled by Manhattan urbanites. The bar serves full liquor, good drafts and wine for a smidge higher than average prices. Stick with the oysters. Raw middleneck clams on the half shell are pretty good too. It sports a cosmopolitan attitude that almost makes St. Pete feel like a big city.
