Oysters at Pennsylvania 6

What's better than dollar oysters? Eating them on the cheap while dining al fresco. The rule of avoiding oysters during months without "r" in them is now outdated, so be sure to enjoy them all year long.

Luckily for D.C. residents, local restaurants have exceptional access to Chesapeake oysters, as well as varieties from waters around the country. Plus, dollar oysters happen to be one of the most popular and beloved happy hour promotions in town. But sometimes these deals are limited just to the bar or lounge areas.

So here's a guide to restaurants that let patrons take advantage of the reduced prices in their outdoor seating areas, too. Many also offer drink specials at the same time, so wash them down with sparkling wine, beer, or discounted cocktails. Here's every deal on Eater knows of at the moment. See something that's missing?Then let us know in the comments. Not a patio person? There are even more oyster happy hour deals for those willing to stay in the bar area.
