We just had to get away from the pandemic lockdown. Vacationed very carefully in Cape Charles. Found the Oyster Farm here. Our waiter, Mike, was a true gem of relaxed charm and knowledge.

Excellent food and service.
Our waiter, Mike, was first class with relaxed conversation and guidance through the menu. A mench! We had the planked salmon and planked scallops both with fresh green beans and risotto. Split a locally produced and very lovely pistachio with salted caramel ice cream for dessert. If you're on a tight budget, it won't be comfy. But i ... read more

My sister and I shared a delicious dinner on the outside deck of this restaurant on a lovely evening in October. We enjoyed Oysters Rockefeller, Bill's ESVA clam chowder, and Chicken Marsala with a side of green beans. Then I ordered a Valrhona brownie to-go for our at-home dessert. Loved that the oysters had kale instead of spinach ... read more

Where do I start? First time in Cape Charles. First evening out. Lots of choices. Out of several appealing options we choose The Oyster Farm. Boy, were we disappointed. Made reservations for a booth.

It looks very nice. They couldn’t find our reservation but seated us after a bit anyway! They were out of oysters and clams which I thought was odd since they are an oyster farm! The Thai shrimp and scallop pasta were very good.
