Skagit County is home to the 'Best Small Town Restaurant in WA'

With a population of just under 4,000 residents, the town of Bow isn't considered a very big place - but that doesn't stop if from serving up some of the best oysters in the state.

According to an article by Thrillist, The Oyster Bar on Chuckanut Drive was named Washington's "Best Small Town Restaurant."

Not only do they serve up Oysters and a plethora of other seafood like prawns, clams, mussels and scallops but - the views are outstanding along Chuckanut Drive.

Here's what Thrillist had to say:

In Washington, oysters are king, and they're best consumed with a spectacular view. Oyster Bar has both in excess. Situated among the sprawling forests, the place serves its bivalves in a hearth-heated dining room (or on a deck, if the weather permits) overlooking the picturesque Samish Bay, with the San Juan Islands visible in the panorama. Get them baked, fried, raw -- no matter what, the server will be on hand to help you pick exactly which oyster type you should get, with elaborate tasting notes usually reserved for wine bars. They're also good in a hearty cioppino -- where they swim with prawns, clams, mussels, and scallops in a spicy saffron stew -- or as appetizers for a solid sirloin kicked up with boar bacon. You'll be so distracted by the array of flavors, you might even forget to giggle when you say Chuckanut. Maybe.

Looks like its time for a trip on Chuckanut Drive, eh? Bon App├ętit!
