NY has a lot of oyster bars but Upstate has been my favorite since they opened their doors a few years ago. I rave about them constantly. I bring friends with me. I stop by solo and have oysters at the bar whenever I get a craving for oysters. What makes them so good? The combination of well picked fresh oysters and genuine hospitality that Shane and his entire staff shows each guest. They will make you feel at home at once and after a couple of visits you'll be chatting like old friends. Try coming during happy hour on weekdays between 5-7pm when you can enjoy half a dozen oysters and a beer for $12. Their craft beer selection is excellent and everything on the menu is delightful.
