S&D Oyster Company
The S&D Oyster Company is located right across McKinney Ave. from Bailey’s Uptown Inn. It has been in the same spot for nearly thirty years, so that should tell you something about its staying power.
S&D offers a “New Orleans” style seafood experience, with the main focus being oysters (of course), shrimp, catfish, crawfish, etc. My personal favorite is the BBQ Shrimp, which, because of its popularity, is only available until they run out each day. And be sure to try S&D’s cole slaw, made with plenty of paprika. If you’re an oyster fan (I’m not), they offer them on the half-shell or fried, and your server will make your oyster sauce to your specifications at your table.
Speaking of service, the same staff has been at this place for as long as I’ve been going there. S&D has some of the best service anywhere in Uptown. Meals typically run around $20 per person.
It is located at 2701 McKinney Ave.
