While Maine is renowned for our lobsters, our cold coastal waters offer another treasure: the oyster. Raised by growers all along our coastlines, the Maine oyster is considered by many to be the best found anywhere in the country - and even the world. The reason? Maine is ideal for oyster growth. Our waters are clean, cold, and nutrient rich,with strong tidal flows which move over the oyster beds, keeping them fed and healthy. Maine oyster harvesters take pride in the care and handling of their “farms” - and the result shines through. We turned to our friends at Basket Island Oysters to source our oysters. They are as local as we could get, raising their oysters right here in Casco Bay off the Portland peninsula. These oysters come straight out of the sea and right to our dock for absolute pristine freshness. Maine oysters are coveted for their punchy, briny “liquor” and sweet flavor - and many consider Basket Islands to be among the very sweetest anywhere in the state. These small-to-medium size “cocktails” are absolutely perfect when served chilled on the half shell with just a kiss of lemon or dollop of spicy cocktail sauce. Oyster ship live and fresh.
