  • A little drive off the main road but most worth the trip. Such a fun place to eat Oysters looking out at the oyster farms where they were harvested from. Definitely an authentic experience.  more »
  • Amazing Oysters and great staff! It was well worth the trip from Hobart (and even from Canada)! Thanks again to Lex for showing us the proper way to open oysters!  more »
  • Worth the drive in for at least a dozen fresh ones. They were nice to lend us glasses for wines we brought. Remember to buy a bottle before you head to mellshell!
  • Excellent, sweet and creamy-tasting oysters. Enormous, too! I bought half a dozen to take away as we arrived just at closing time.
