Out of the shuck shack we provide our oysters and clams whole in the shell for you to shuck and cook yourself. We give instruction and guidance in a very relaxed atmosphere that brings you closer to your food.
And in case you want it all done for you from The Kitchen we bring you recipes that highlight the natural beauty of our shellfish. All of our ingredients are non GMO, organic and sustainable.
We are a BYOB, the park is dog friendly (on a lead) and we are very lucky to enjoy a wonderful energy from a great diversity of oyster lovers from far and wide.

Tips for Picnickers

What to bring

Here are some suggestions to make the most of your visit:

  • - An oyster knife and a clean cloth or gloves to shuck the oysters.
  • - For the clams, a pan and a nice loaf of French bread (perfect for sopping up the broth).
  • - Wine and beer (allowed in the State Park).
  • - A cooler with ice.
  • - Sauces, salads, vegetables, cheeses, fruit…

We have oyster knives, sauces, lemons and charcoal for purchase.
