They’re meaty but the brine at times tends to obscure the natural sweetness. angler23 on December 18, 2019 at 11:22 pm Rating 5 Nice texture, salty but not briney – entire family liked ‘em. Ian Kang on April 23, 2019 at 10:56 pm Rating 4 The salt blast is for real. You get a real taste of an Atlantic-side bay with these. Goes perfect with a beer. I always find myself craving one of these at any oyster bar. Admiring the rugged shells is also nice after slurping them down. Bob Sansbury on April 20, 2018 at 8:18 pm Rating 4.5 My ‘go to’ oyster. Tons of brine. Inexpensive and easy to come by. Even more fun when you harvest yourself from Tom’s Cove… just stay out of the private beds.

Erin on January 31, 2016 at 12:12 am Rating 4.5 Funny, I didn’t find these as briny as reported. A little steaky, a little brine, and a little kelp – kind of the just-right bowl of porridge on the platter.

Carter on November 1, 2015 at 12:47 pm Rating 4 Darn tasty, and thank you Virginia growers. Brine like this deserves a deep cup and gets one with these beauts. I enjoyed them thanks to the hospitable staff at Pearl Dive oyster bar on 14th NW in DC. Submit a Rating Cancel replySign up now to post your rating, or login here.
