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

Overpriced
Second time eating here with friends. The wait staff is friendly, knowledgable and willing to make changes for picky eaters. But the quality of the food is average and is overpriced. $24 for a dozen oysters. Mid-teens for most lunch selections. $5-6 for a cup...More ... read more

Excellent food with many unique and delicious options on the menu. The food prices are a little high, especially for the locals, but are on par with other restaurants in the area, which cater heavily to the summer tourist population. The Wednesday night trivia events are very fun and challenging. Service can be very slow during busy ... read more

Phenomenal Waitress
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.
