Our Oysters


Raised in the Chesapeake Bay - where Atlantic seawater mixes with fresh water tributaries - our signature deep-cupped ‘Golds’ are prized by oyster lovers for their distinct merroir and golden hue. A fusion of salt and sweet found in every taste. Available in five varietals.  

Shucked Pints

Chesapeake Gold Oyster

Hand-shucked Chesapeake Gold Oysters are processed daily in our HACCP approved facility at Hoopers Island.

All of our oysters go through a stringent quality control checklist before being released to our processing department.

Our oysters are packed in natural juices before and sealed with our tamper proof lid and marked with a sell by date to ensure freshness
