The Article

The Drunken Oyster is committed to being the best restaurant in Amarillo. Delicious New Orleans inspired Cajun cuisine and culture is at the heart of everything we do here. From scrumptious Crawfish Etouffee to a perfect Shrimp Po’ Boy sandwich, we are serving up world-class Cajun cooking so good that you’ll feel like you are sitting in the middle of The Big Easy. And The Drunken Oyster is not just offering the best Cajun food in Amarillo, we are also well-known for our oyster bar and super-fresh seafood that is flown in daily. Most of the seafood highlighted in our dishes was caught less than 24 hours before it made it to our restaurant. Not into seafood? We’ll put our steaks and burgers up against the best steak houses in Texas. You might think that is a bold statement, but hey – you can’t be the best restaurant in Amarillo by being timid, right?

Looking for an awesome hometown bar with a super-cool vibe? The Drunken Oyster’s Library Bar is one of the best bars in Amarillo and one of the only places in town that you can experience Absinthe Drip Service and amazing Prohibition-inspired cocktails that feature the Green Fairy. The Drunken Oyster is a cornerstone of Amarillo nightlife featuring the best late-night Happy Hour in Amarillo from 10PM to Midnight every Monday through Friday, as well as some of the best live music in Amarillo on most Thursday, Friday, and Saturday nights. We are home to the Velvet Curtain Theatre – one of coolest live music venues in Amarillo right inside the restaurant – where we feature awesome musical acts from all over Texas that cover Jazz, Blues, and all kinds of Rock!

Not a night owl? Join us for the best Brunch in Amarillo every Saturday and Sunday featuring Live Music, Bubbly and Benedicts. TOP TIP: We’re the Home of the One Dollar Mimosa Refill. Yes, it’s real thing – and it’s one-hell-of-a-way to start a Sunday. We also offer Brunch on most weekend holidays like Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Memorial Day, and Easter Brunch. And if you are still a little timid about dining inside during COVID-19, we are proud to offer you the best outdoor dining in Amarillo where you can enjoy our full menu al fresco!

We can go on and on about what we offer here and why we are different, but the truth is – you just cannot accurately describe on a blog post what makes The Drunken Oyster such a special place. You just need to experience it for yourself. And you don’t have to take our word for it! Check out our hundreds of 5-Star Yelp Reviews and 5-Star Google Reviews and read what our customers have to say! (Do we have some bad reviews as well? Of course we do. We’re not perfect and we may unintentionally drop the ball sometimes… BUT, we are never content with poor performance, we are fanatical about great customer service, and we always try to make it right when we mess up.)

So, whether you need a quick bite on your way to catch golden hour at the Cadillac Ranch, or are famished after your hike through Palo Duro Canyon, or just ready for cold drink after a grueling day at work in our great city of Amarillo, The Drunken Oyster has you covered! We’re on a mission to be Amarillo’s Best Restaurant and we’re excited to serve you!
