Where is Williams Wharf?

William’s Wharf is located on the wester shore of the Chesepeak Bay in Virginia. It sits between the Rappahannock River on the north, and the York River on the south. There is a WWII US Navy torpedo boat named after it, called the USS Mobjack.

What do William's Wharf oysters taste like?

They have a delicate symphony of sweet and salty tastes. The key to this is reduced salinity from the freshwater rivers surrounding William’s Wharf.

What should I eat them with?

We’ve cultivated them so that they can be served 100% on their own. To really enjoy the complexity of flavor, we prefer them naked (meaning without sauce)  on the half-shell.

Is it healthy to eat oysters?

Aside from being incredibly low in cholesterol, these bivalves are an excellent source of minerals zinc & copper. Experts think that oysters accumulate so much zinc & copper to help fight off bacteria and other unwanted diseases. They are also rich in Omega-3 fatty acids.

Are they available in months without an “R”?

This is a controversy that has been around since before Roman times. This old adage is based on the spawning season of oysters, during which they lose a lot of their meat and become relatively tasteless. Our oysters however are sterile, in order to prevent them from mixing with the native oyster population, and can be enjoyed all 12 months of the year.
