Rhineharts Fried Oyster Poor Boy Sandwich

If you’re traveling to Augusta, Georgia then there is one place you must include on your itinerary, and that’s Rhinehart’s Oyster Bar.  They undoubtedly offer the best seafood this side of the Mississippi.

Craig and Amy opened this now famous eating establishment in 1983 with little more than a small refrigerator and their Aunt Nancy’s toaster oven.   Rhinehart’s moister oysters, home baked bread, and attentive, hardworking staff quickly became a hit in Augusta.  People began to tell their friends and one thing lead to another and fast forward thirty years and now they are on the map for the best seafood in Georgia.

My favorite item on the menu is the Rhinehart’s Fried Oyster Poor Boy Sandwich.  This delicious sandwich is made from fresh oysters that have been hand dipped in a perfectly seasoned mixture of batter and fried to a crisp and perfect golden color.  Hot and crisp from the fryer these oysters are served on home baked bread with chips and a pickle.
