After my third trip up the eastern shore I have got to leave a five star+ review. The food has been consistently yummy and service great. Oysters are large and fresh whether steamed on ice or fried. We have tried several of the menu items but the fish and chips alone is worth a shout out. It doesn't hurt that they sell and feature be ... read more

Great place!!! The atmosphere  was awesome, the servers were friendly, super fast service.  Very busy place, especially being in Covid time.  Had to make reservation, but that wasn't too bad.  My gf and I dined there for our special night and we decided to just do appetizers; none of it disappoint.  We started with 1/2 dozen of raw o ... read more

Beautiful view, average food
The Oyster Farm has a welcoming staff, good service and wonderful views. Unfortunately, we were underwhelmed by the food. The server could not recommend any local seafood. Our meals weren’t bad or good. They were just average. With the restaurant being so nice with wonderful...views we expected a lot better.More ... read more

We visited on this past Saturday night and it was packed. There was a wedding party upstairs too. We were given the option of sitting at their beautiful backlit bar or a high top table.

It's hard for me to get on-board with American seafood restaurants. There is just something so hard to get right. From the price, to the execution, to the ensemble of what you offer. At the Oyster Farm, nothing was terrible, but nothing was terrific. Everything was about par for the course.

Perfectly adequate seafood, but nothing to write home about. Raw oysters were fresh and delish. She crab soup very sweet - needed salt/season. Asked for ahi tuna sandwich cooked rare - it was medium at best and no seasoning, aioli was flavorless. Husband enjoyed fried oysters - they were not too battered and dipping sauce was yummy. ... read more

Best lunch ever! Sat waterfront with a crisp glass of rose, we started with raw oysters, which were delicious! We both had Caesar salads which were simple but incredible. My husband topped his with fried oysters and I went with the seared tuna. I swear I had a price of tuna for every bite! Just wonderful!

Good but not local seafood, in a large restaurant with few customers
The Oyster Farm Seafood Eatery is in a nice, new location at some distance from the historic downtown of Cape Charles. Its food was good and plentiful, but more expensive than the competition's.
