Fresh Local Oysters

York River Oyster Company is home of the freshest oysters on the York River that are locally harvested, hand picked and shucked. Served raw, steamed, or fried, our chefs make sure you’ll absolutely love the way these bad boys taste. As you can see, our chefs have even created several very creative oyster specials that leave our customers begging for more!

Healthy & Fresh Seafood

We realize the importance of living a healthy and active lifestyle, which is why we provide several healthy seafood options! Many recent studies confirm the numerous health benefits of seafood consumption – not only is it a delicious source of protein to incorporate into your diet, it has been proven to offer many benefits to heart, brain and other areas of heath as well – giving you even more reason to enjoy some of your favorite seafood dishes. In fact, the American Heart Association recommends eating at least two servings of fish each week for better health.
