Legendary Oysters Fresh Outta the Chesapeake Bay
Rappahannock River Oysters
When you think about what overfishing has done to the Chesapeake Bay over the past century, it's amazing there are even any shellfish around for us to enjoy. But when you consider that RRO has been producing what is considered by many to be the best tasting oyster in the world, it's really awe inspiring!

Established in 1899 by a young James Croxton, Rappahannock River Oysters + Clams has gone from serving local dinner tables to supplying some of the world’s finest restaurants. Their incredibly fresh and tasty bivalves are all native to the Chesapeake Bay, which for centuries has been exalted for their seafood. Rappahannock River Oysters + Clams are aquaculture grown in the family-run estuary and are the perfect combination of salt, tenderness, and natural flavors. Famous varieties like the sweet Rappahannock River oyster and the ocean-side Olde Salt are among the most succulent you can get your hands on. Thanks to RRO, the world is indeed our oyster.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Rappahannock River Oysters have been featured on "The Today Show," PBS's "Chef's Afield," The Huffington Post, The Washington Post, Travel + Leisure Magazine, Food & Wine Magazine, Garden and Gun Magazine, and can be found in the kitchens of some of the nation's top chefs including Eric Ripert, Tom Colicchio and James Beard Award Winner Rowan Jackobson.
