  • Not to be missed! Here we ate the best oysters ever taste and a crab-yummy! The place is very casual but you can enjoy a relaxed and homely. You can choose the type and amount of oysters that you want but you can also find other types of shellfish and fish, including king salmon and crab. These are already boiled for those wishing to eat it raw at the time or if you want to cook at home. The price is more than fair: approximately $ 20 for a whole crab and oysters cost just over a $! I mean, ever eaten a fish so fresh and good!

  • Just off the main road, there is the ability to pick and pay for your collection of farmed oysters. This is a beautiful bay, looking out over the ocean and the path of the ferries going through. The a...  read more »
  • I love oysters so this was a must do on my stop in Orcas Island. We got a dozen oysters for $16. Considering we are shucking these ourselves and not at a restaurant, I thought the price was quite high...  read more »
  • Very fresh shellfish harvested across the street in a bay. They have several varietals of oysters, steamer clams, and fresh dungeness crab. All of these may be purchased live on site. Additional fish, including smoked salmon, halibut, and cooked crab may also be purchased on property. They can sell you seafood to bring home to cook, but also offer oyster tastings on site. Previously, I had only ever tried an oyster shooter at a Seattle seafood chain, and it was not something I enjoyed. The staff at the site decided that they needed to give me a better experience, so they approached me with a freshly shucked oyster and a small lemon wedge. This oyster, while still not my favorite, was far better than my prior experience, and their desire to show me their product and let me experience what a true oyster should be really won me over. We bought a few pounds of steamer clams which we ate that day. They were tender, sand free, and had excellent flavor. Prices were reasonable and they take cash or credit cards without trouble. The site isn't a fancy location, but it was a neat experience.
  • Amazing fresh oysters! You can bring your own wine and shuck oysters sitting on a table outside, enjoying the view of the bay.
  • Local spot for fresh oysters, clams, and crab. Also a good selection of fish by the pound. Small garden on site to eat oysters on the half shell.
  • Fresh oysters near where they are mined, and some that have come from away. All delicious.
  • Great stop to have some fresh oysters and prawns after a hike. Very nice staff. You choose and shuck your own oysters. I think it was $1 ea for mediums. Quite delicious! They provide some seating and a shucker.
