    Just a local twenty-something excited to bring AVL news to you!

Jettie Rae’s Oyster House is thrilled to announce they have been named as one of Tripadvisor’s 2023 Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best Restaurants in the United States. In their spot at No. 9, Jettie Rae’s is the only restaurant from North Carolina represented on the Everyday Eats list.

According to Tripadvisor, Travelers’ Choice Best of the Best is awarded to restaurants with a high volume of above-and-beyond reviews and opinions from the community over a 12-month period. Fewer than 1% of Tripadvisor’s 8 million listings are awarded Best of the Best, signifying the highest level of excellence in travel.


Through its philosophy, “honest food done well,” Jettie Rae's honors the history and tradition of classic seafood dishes like the Crispy Clam Strips of New England, Spanish Octopus, Crab Rice of coastal Carolina Gullah communities and, of course, oysters, carefully curated and shipped in every few days from top purveyors like Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury, MA. In addition to serving elevated cuisine of the highest quality, Jettie Rae’s is committed to providing excellent service, which is reflected in their placement in this ranking.
