Oysters in Garlic Herb Butter ($18 dinner; $15 happy hour)

Stop by Waikiki’s The Seaside for satiating seafood served in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. With a new food and beverage menu for the summer, guests will enjoy “crisp, light, refreshing offerings for the hot sunny days,” says general manager Todd Vrooman.

The Seaside is known for its fresh-shucked oysters, and this summer, the eatery is sourcing unique oysters from places like Northern Canada and New Zealand. Enjoy oysters during happy hour ($4 each) and unwind with a specially prepared cocktail — like the new Samurai Sword ($16 dinner; $14 happy hour) made with sake.

Oyster Poke ($22)

“Our new cocktails bring out the kiss of the ocean from each oyster,” Vrooman describes.

In addition to The Seaside’s acclaimed raw oysters, a cooked oyster option is now available. Oysters in Garlic Herb Butter ($18 dinner; $15 happy hour) are cooked in rich housemade herb butter and topped with bread crumbs. Freshly toasted bread and a glass of Moët & Chandon ($19) complement the decadent cooked oyster dish.

White Wine Steamed Mussels ($28)

Another new item for shellfish lovers is White Wine Steamed Mussels ($28). Fresh shellfish are cooked in a Dutch oven and steamed in white wine, minced garlic, chile flakes and Italian parsley.

Oyster Poke ($22) offers a twist on the Hawaiian classic. A fresh and crisp citrus flavor is presented with yuzu sauce, sea asparagus, onion and a yuzu peel topping. The unique poke pairs perfectly with fresh-squeezed lemonade ($6) or a Shiso Gin and Tonic ($16).

“If you love seafood, you’ve got to come see us at The Seaside,” concludes Vrooman.
