They were first served by Italian immigrant Phillip Mazzoni and his brothers in the late 19th century as a free giveaway to their saloon patrons with a purchased beer or whiskey.
It is unknown if rolled oysters were actually invented by the Mazzonis, or if the recipe was brought over from Italy with them.
During prohibition, Mazzoni's remained open by selling these oysters in their new restaurant and it became a popular food item all over town.
Prohibition is the illegality of the manufacturing, storage in barrels or bottles, transportation, sale, possession, and consumption of alcohol including alcoholic beverages, or a period of time during which such illegality was enforced.
Today, most seafood restaurants and fish fries in the Louisville area will have their own version of these on their menus.
