Whether you enjoy them plain or dressed up, with wine or champagne, or even paired with beer, there’s a deal going on every day of the week. Clearly, the only thing the city loves more than a half priced bottle, is oysters that only cost $1.
Take a look at 10 of the best places to get buck-a-shuck in Toronto below.

Locals Only on King West is serving up buck-a-shuck oysters everyday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Even if you don’t live in the neighbourhood, you’re going to want to go the distance especially since the restaurant will be doling out half-priced bottles of wine and prosecco within the same time frame. Nothing pairs better with oysters than some bubbly.

Starting at 4 p.m. onwards, get $1 oysters with the purchase of a bottle of wine. However, don’t wait too long as this deal only goes until supplies last which means happy hour is the perfect time to sip on a glass and slurp some oysters back.

This sleek outpost is in the business of brewing small-batch beer and blessing us with $1 oysters every Wednesday.
