Mayflower Point (3 Ratings)

  1. Rating 4

    Very briny but delicate flavor

  2. Rating 3

    Smallish, briny, sweet finish

  3. Rating 3.5

    A mild, midsized oyster with a very sweet finish—a typical Cape Cod Bay profile that almost all the Barnstable and Dennis oysters share. The shells were pale and thin and the texture delicate, indicating a tray-raised oyster, but the cups were fairly deep for tray oysters. These must be handled a fair amount. They certainly feel well cared-for.
