Eddie V’s Prime Seafood: Fresh Oysters for Happy Hour

If you're expecting wings and domestic beer during happy hour, you're in for a surprise at Eddie V’s Prime Seafood. This upscale restaurant specializes in fine seafood and steak — as you can probably surmise from its name — so it makes sense that happy hour would also feature these fine foods, along with glasses of wine and cocktails.

From 4 to 7 p.m. seven days a week, Eddie V's in McLean offers an affordable happy hour menu that's heavy on the seafood. Savor East Coast oysters on the half-shell with cocktail and mignonette sauce or try the batter-fried oysters embellished with curry sauce, cilantro, and pickled Asian cucumbers. Try the blackened fish tacos of the salt-and-pepper shrimp with stir-fried veggies. Enjoy the Pacific Ahi tuna tartare or the jumbo lump crab cake with spicy chive remoulade. If you like what you taste (and you probably will), stick around for larger dinner versions at Eddie V's Prime Seafood.
