Excellent Oysters

These oysters are some of the best we have ever had. They are so good that Michael Smith is serving them at Fireworks.

tasty, fresh and can't wait to have them again. Now finding a place in Toronto that sells them is the challenge.

My second visit for the tasty lobster rolls, what can one say. Fresh lobster on a toasted roll with pickles and chips, great combination. Will be taking 3 home on the flight this week for my wife.

I was a little surprised at the price of oysters around the island in restaurants so I was happy to see reasonably priced oysters here. We went to the retail location. We drove past it the first time thinking, "surely, nothing good can come out of a shack" but on our way home from Basin Head we were directed to... More

These were the best oysters we had on the island (and pretty much anywhere else). Absolutely worth the drive to Souris for anyone who likes oysters.

I live in California, but am from Souris, so perhaps I am biased in this review. I have eaten oysters from all over North America from nice west coast oysters to disgusting Gulf coast oysters to Blue Points in the Northeast, and I am comfortable in saying that if you like oysters, you will like these ones. Skip the sauces.... More
