This amazing Deluxe Seafood Platter though slightly pricey, was more than sufficient for 4 of us. I am not big on fried foods, so I liked the cold stuff better

Seafood Paella which was fairly good but not the best I have had however… the overall dining experience at Richmond Oysters was good! Although seafood is their specialty here, there are steaks, chicken & other interesting sides & salads available too
