10 of 31

Whether you swing by the first-come, first-served oyster bar, which serves bivalves on the half shell and opens to a courtyard with a putt-putt course, or go for a full meal at the barrel-vaulted main restaurant, in the former headquarters of Talmadge Country Hams, it’s clear that chef Adam Evans knows seafood. One must-order dish: the peel-and-eat Georgia shrimp, with “come back” sauce (a souped-up Russian dressing) and duck fat–poached swordfish.
