61 places with $1 oyster deals in Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville

A dozen oysters at Eventide in the Fenway. –Josh Reynolds for The Boston Globe

For a snack as casual as oysters — a quick squeeze of lemon, a tiny scoop of mignonette sauce, and down the hatch it goes — ordering a dozen (or more) can do a number on your wallet.

The move: Take advantage of every $1 oyster deal in the city. We found the restaurants and bars in Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville offering $1 oyster specials, so that your next bivalve outing won’t leave you in the red.

Happy slurping!
