Oh my goodness, a little Louisiana in Korea.
Even though Pier 17 is not on a pier, but in a posh upscale little area near the Sinsa subway station, it is a gem of a find!
My girlfriend Beth has been wanting to try Pier 17 for MONTHS now so when we were discussing what do for our next date night we remembered....PIER 17!!!
And we are SO GLAD we did!
Even before we ordered we were totally digging this place. They deliver a cute little box to your table with napkins, gloves, wet napkins, hot sauce, forks, knives, spoons and they deliver a nice little bucket to put your leftover shells in, but when it arrives at your table it is filled with these groovy little scissors.  Way better than crab crackers.
I'm not going to mention any names, but someone had a hard time figuring out how to use these groovy little tools....we were a bit afraid he was going to take off a finger.  :o)    Notice his gloves?  Yea, that's the way we roll.
Pier 17 has an oyster bar...you can get fried oysters, baked, oysters Rockefeller (but they were green!), raw (when in season) or au gratin.   The fried were HEAVENLY.  Maybe it is because I haven't been eating much fried food lately, or maybe it is because they were DELICIOUS.
When you go, you must order a  SHARK ATTACK just for the pure fun of it.
9,000 won for a big 'ol blue margarita where a shark pukes red bloody (grenadine) goodness into your drink.
The drinks are sweet, but tasty.
Just as a side note:
Hubby ordered a Hurricane, everyone at the table except myself liked the Hurricane better than the Shark Attack.
But the Shark attack was way more fun! :o)
The oyster's Rockefeller were simply OK.  Not my favorite....they look cool when they came out, but alas save your money on these, a little on the bland side even with the green breadcrumb mixture.
The star of the show was the crawfish boil. 
The seasonings were RIGHT ON.
All the seafood was cooked perfectly.
Nothing was overcooked or soggy.
I couldn't believe they got it right.
The only thing that could have made this better is if Hubby had not eaten all the bread.
We had nothing to sop up the juices with.
Great dinner, super fun night.
We ordered a party set for 79,000 won which was more than enough to feed the 4 of us.
It included, fried oysters, oysters Rockefeller, jambalaya and the crawfish boil....I feel like there was something else that came with it, but I can't remember right now.
The aftermath....
And just a little something to make you smile. :o)
To get there:
Sinsa Station exit 8.  Walk straight to Garosu-gil street - take a left.
Go one block (I think it is just 1 block, mabye 2 ) to Apgujeong-ro 8-gil street.
Go to the 1st intersection and Pier 17 will be on your right....you actually need to turn the corner and it is RIGHT THERE.  Go up to the 2nd floor.
532-4 Sinsa-dong (13 Apgujeong-ro 10-gil)
Gangnam-gu, Seoul
They accept reservations
