Oysters – you either love ’em or you hate ’em. If you’re the latter, we’re sorry to hear. But if you’re with us and love ’em then get ready for a month in paradise. The incredible Sean Connolly and his team at Sean’s Kitchen are bringing back their hugely successful annual Oyster Festival for the entire month of August.
There will be daily $2 oyster happy hours, three amazing dinners, fantastic Champagne, new oyster dishes on the menu like the Coffin Bay Oyster po’ boy, black bun with green goddess dressing, and more.
Here’s what’s on offer at Sean’s Kitchen this August:
The $2 Buck Shuck
Back by popular demand are oyster happy hours.

Sean Loves South Australian Oysters
Sean’s Kitchen is proud to showcase oysters from all over South Australia for the 2019 Oyster Festival.
South Australian farms produce high quality oysters, recognised globally for their creamy texture, fresh sea smell, pearly white inner shell and distinctive frilled exterior along with a high meat to shell ratio.
Smoky Bay Oysters
The waters of Smoky Bay are fed by the cool nutrient rich waters of the Southern Ocean, giving freshly harvested oysters a wonderful flavour and presentation. Oysters from Smoky Bay are renowned globally for their “Sweet Ocean” taste.
Coffin Bay Oysters
Coffin Bay is the premier oyster growing region in South Australia. Oysters produced here are known for their quality, flavour and size, largely due to the waterways surrounding Coffin Bay which are constantly being nourished with nutrient enriched seawater, welling up from the Southern Ocean.
American River Oysters
Kangaroo Island is well-known for its clean, green environment including high-quality pristine waters. Oysters grown in this region are known for their size, quality and distinctly sweet yet salty flavour.
A thriving oyster industry has been established in Franklin Harbour, which is located in Cowell.
The clean, sheltered water in this area provides an excellent environment for aquaculture, and the Pacific Oyster grown locally are recognised as some of the highest quality in the world.
