Where to Shuck Oysters at The Wharf

September 23, 2021

Let’s get shucking! Wild oysters are always best in months ending in "r", so now that we're in season, we’ve put together a list of the best places to slurp them up at The Wharf:

🦪 Hank’s Oyster Bar – Order up a rotating variety of a ½ dozen oysters ($18) or shoot them down with an oyster shooter ($10).

🦪 Kaliwa – The Southeast Asian-inspired restaurant creates its own East Coast Oysters with Calamansi Mignonette ($18).

🦪 THE GRILL DC – Order up 6 or 12 oysters on the half shell with a smoky-tomato cocktail sauce and cucumber-champagne mignonette ($15/29).

🦪 Rappahannock Oyster Bar – Order from the raw bar and slurp down Rappahannock River Oysters, Rochambeau Oysters, or Olde Salt Oysters.

🦪 Jessie Taylor Seafood – The Municipal Fish Market vendor offers raw Chincoteague and Bay Oysters.
