Quality food
Dinner at the Oyster Farm was delicious. It was extremely quiet the night we visited. I had the pasta diablo with clams and muscles and it was delicious. We are sampled the lobster Mac n cheese and it did not disappoint!

Great Quality Food
We were looking for seafood, and this is THE place. Reasonable prices for excellent food. White cotton napkins topped off excellent service. Not sure if it is kid-friendly. Seems to be geared to adults, which is fine with us.

This was my first visit to the Oyster Farm. It was a bleak outside. in the middle of Jan day, and low key but friendly. We ordered the cream of crab soup, an oyster sandwich, and a fried oyster basket. I got a few satisfying lumps of crab in my creamy soup. Both lunches came with a remoulade for which I MUST figure out the recipe ... read more

Wow. Beautiful place! The food was delicious and so were the brews. Our server, Becky, was great answering our questions; we learned so much about farming, the menu choices, the restaurant. Glad we found you! Maybe 6 stars.

Wow factor upon entry... huge aquariums of salt water fish and one further inside the restaurant. The bar is inviting and Erika behind it has flair. She made a manhattan just right for this picky lady. Her recommendation of the Oyster Rockefeller was spot on. The switch from spinach to kale gave it texture without change in flavor.   ... read more

Excellent food with many unique and delicious options on the menu.

Steamed oysters were OK but not the size expected. Blue Cheese wedge was great...loads of blue cheese. This is a great place to go with friends or a date. It's more upscale than most other places.

The place for an upscale dinner in Cape Charles
The Oyster Farm provides an attractive dining room or outdoor seating, both w/terrific water views, coupled with excellent food and friendly service. It's related outdoor bar on the same property makes for a perfect setting for drinks with live music on weekends.
