    Oysters, oysters, oysters! Its also a picnic area where you can bring what ever you want and barbecue. Table is something like 5$, just it can be busy. You can also get charcoal, knives, sauces.

    Buy a bag of fresh oysters, lemon,sauce and shucking knives; BYOB for a great day outdoors. The picnic area is closed now but there are a few benches around and picnic areas nearby.

    Cash only! Oysters only! If you want beer - bring with you! If you want food other then oysters - bring with you! If you want drinks - well you know. It is oysters only and in the middle of nowhere

    A little more rustic than Hog Island. Buy your oysters and shuck them at the picnic tables by the bay. I THINK BYOB.

    Get here early if it's nice weather or the weekend. The clams and mussels are huge and make for a great change of pace.

    An incredible day spent out here. Bring the wine, BBQ food, and a great appetite. Going in the Fall and Winter will promise better table availability.

    The vibe is great. Be sure to come early to get a table or make a reservation if you have a party larger than 10 people.

    There's new ownership now and the new owner is more, shall I say, enterprising. You have to pay tips for valet parking and a $5 per person to use the picnic table. All those used to be free. :(

    Oysters and mussels. Get there early though and be prepared to wait. Bring other food to grill as well.

    They sell oysters/knives, first come outdoor tables/grills. You bring everything else (charcoal, booze, etc). Barter w/ others. Come early on wknds (full by 11am). Cheaper, more relaxed vs Hog Island.

    Oysters are delicious but don't forget to keep them on ice. Otherwise it's gonna be a long drive home.

    Reserve a table if you have a big group. Great oysters but bring extra shuckers and beer :)

    Find the guy with a clipboard to get a table. They're all "reserved" otherwise.
