When it comes to getting your fill of fresh raw oysters, all-you-can-eat seafood buffets were the way to go. But let’s be real — buffets are usually reserved for special occasions, not just when a serious shellfish craving hits.
Now it seems more restaurants are beginning to offer these tasty raw bar items. And best of all, you don't have to shell out a load of money to enjoy them.
