Finally made my way over to historic and popular Marliave! The happy hour is a steal with 1.50 an oyster (with 4 varieties to choose from). The drinks were a throw-back to prohibition and all equally tasty. The top floor is perfect on a warm evening; there are plenty of windows for a warm breeze.

Their happy hour is solid - $1.50 oysters and discounted drinks from 6-7 and 9-10pm! The oysters are super fresh and the drinks are very good. The ambience is also very romantic. This is the perfect place for a date or girls night out!

Marliave is a great little place in downtown Boston (close to Park Street and Downtown Crossing stops) which has dollar oysters every day from 4-6 and 9-10 pm. In addition, they have an inventive cocktail list. Their regular menu looks fine, but honestly I always go for the oysters. The whole place is infused with a Prohibition-y retro feeling.

$1 Oysters Review Only (Available Daily from 4:00pm-6:00 p.m. & 9:00pm-10:00 p.m)

I'll be honest, I had my doubts about $1 oysters and wondered if I'd be huging the little jon for the rest of the evening, but Marliave's proved me wrong. Their oysters were delicious and extremely fresh. We ended up eating way more than we originally anticipated (12 per person and this was only suppose to be a snack!) which can attest to their quality seafood. On the day we went they had 3 choices, though I'm sure they switch out their happy hour menu seasonally so that patrons can enjoy only the best.

Marliave you've set the bar extremely high and I pray that the other $1 oyster joints can fill your huge shoes!

I came here for lunch during Restaurant Week. The mussels were fantastic, the steak frites were very good, and the brownie sundae was just ok. It's a very large space and I loved the overall feel of the place.
