This seafood spot on the Westside feels a little upscale, with seafood towers and a $55 steak on the menu. At the same time, though, The Optimist hosts a daily $1 oyster Happy Hour and has a putting green out front. It’s a great option for when you want have a few cocktails on the astroturf patio and then eat some oysters or a whole roasted fish.
