Oysters and Beer in an Old Gas Station

None 6 Photos Pier247
Some people see an old gas station and think: eyesore.

Other people see an old gas station and think: chicken-fried oyster spot.

We like those people.

Go meet them at Pier247, a casual new home for weeknight dinners, draft-beer nightcaps and any occasion that’d be improved with bivalves, now open in Bishop Arts.

Sure, this is the kind of spot where you can get grilled-salmon salads and pan-seared snapper. But then you’d miss out on things like fried-oyster BLTs and sausage-and-chicken jambalaya. And that’d be on you.

So now that your game plan’s established, stop in one of these nights for dinner. (Like, tonight.) The black-topped bar on your left is a fine way to begin, it having 12 drafts (Full Sail Amber, Fireman’s #4) and all. Then somewhere between pints, those wooden booths by the big front windows might beckon. They’re great for sitting down while conducting important crawfish-nacho-related business.

And you may have noticed those breezy patios anchoring both sides of this place. They’re not too useful today, but soon they’ll be fine candidates for Bloody-Mary-and-oysters-benedict weekends.

Also commonly referred to as “brunch.”
