Oysters from the Lynnhaven were renowned
as the best in the world.

Join us in their revival!

From start to finish we care for our oysters entirely by hand: Pleasure House Oysters are hand selected, tumbled, graded, cleaned, counted and packaged.

  1. I had the chance to eat some of these Lynnhaven Oysters a couple weeks ago at an event . The oysters were outstanding and the whole operation is first class.

  2. Good morning sir — your Oyster Tasting event at Terrapin yesterday (10 Dec 13) was awesome — Donna and I thoroughly enjoyed the local history / knowledge … although I might have to attend again to start to understand all that you went through with us … 🙂 That is another way of saying we WILL be back —thanks again and please put us on your email list for future events. Terrapin is a great place as well — lead chef / staff / Bryan out front with wine knowledge — great Team effort!

    All the best always

    Donna and walt

    PS —Sent note to wrong place yesterday (Lynnhaven Oyster) and also sent an old “oyster” picture —send me an email address and will send that —I don’t see a place here to attach / embed a picture —thanks!

  3. I’ve had the Lynnhaven oysters,and there is nothing to compare them too,still big and salty like they where back in the 60’s

  4. Dear Mr Ledford: I’ve enjoyed your website and I’ve had your oysters at A.W. Shucks. They seem to do a very good job there! Good shucking by Jamie. I’d love to take tour and could easily find others interested. Yes, I’d love to take your tour and check out the farm. Waterman and Tasting tours. I do live on the water and would like to grow in a float but I would not expect that I could do what the pros do. I’m a very avid consumer and find shucking pleasurable (I don’t have to do it for a living!!). I’ve always wanted to attend a Terrapin oyster tasting but seem to always find out after the fact. I’m sure they fill up quite quickly!! I’m a fan of size and brine!! Thanks. arthur j goldman

  5. What a fantastic farm and operation! We had the pleasure of taking a tour with Chris and had an amazing experience. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and dedicated to his craft. It’s clear that Pleasure House is committed to environmental responsibility and sustainability – and these oysters are the tastiest I’ve ever had!

  6. Very interesting suggestions about Oysters, but you forgot to mention the beautiful selection of these delicassies in the Pacific Ocean: Kumamotos from California & Oregon, Oysters from Quilacum, B.C. in Canada and the best in the WORLD; oysters from Chiloe Island in Chile. Try to taste raw oysters with just a few drops of lemon juice, and you will taste Heaven!

  7. Took a great Oyster tour of the Pleasure House reef with Chris and his First Mate, Carson, on Saturday May 20th.

    Great tour! Educational, fun and great oysters, too.

    Highly recommended.
