Smith Island, Virginia   MapOyster bars nearby

The flagship oyster of Ballard Fish & Oyster Co., Misty Points are remarkably salty and strong-shelled for a Midatlantic oyster. Grown in the barrier islands at the bottom tip of Virginia’s Eastern Shore in off-bottom trays, and tumbled to deepen the cups and increase shell strength.

    While a good oyster and pretty much standard for Eastern Shore of VA, I thought they lacked the salinity I expected from seaside farm raised. Cocktail sized and shells were a little brittle. Good favor.

  2. Rating 3

    Not salty enough for my taste.

  3. Rating 5

    These salty seasides are among the finest, consistently fat with a classic deep cup that makes for great baked oysters.
