Oyster Saloon


Update 3/16: The Oyster Saloon is closed due to the coronavirus shut down. We are assessing our takeout options and will update this page as we learn more. Meanwhile, our farm store is open and we've got lots of online sales underway for oysters and clams shipped to your door. Come by for shellfish to take home and eat, or order online. If you want to plan an adventure at the saloon on a future date, $100 gift certificates are currently 20% off.


back in the day when people came to our farm looking to eat raw oysters, we’d tell them their best option was to buy oysters and go shuck themselves. At the time, most restaurants on Hood Canal didn’t serve oysters on the half shell.

Since Hood Canal is one of the nation’s great oyster producing regions, this was clearly an untenable situation. Enter the Oyster Saloon, which we built in 2014. Our goal was to create something to showcase oysters and our community… we wanted wood smoke, fresh oysters, cold beer, and a salty breeze. We used gravel from our own quarry, built a fence out of oyster shell, and constructed eating huts out of home-grown lumber, outfitting them with window frames from a 1920s-era logger’s bathhouse.

The Saloon is rustic and outdoor, so bring your coat, and come experience oysters in the elements. In the winter you can watch storms blow down the canal and listen to sea lions bark in the estuary.

In the summer, the saloon offers an excellent view of the tide rolling off the oyster beds. We also have live music from 1 to 4 on most weekends (and some Mondays) during the summer, check the 2019 schedule here.

Our limited, oyster-focused menu changes with the seasons. Kids are welcome, but not your picnic basket. If you're coming up with a big group (more than 10 people) we'd love it if you called to give us a heads up... we don't take reservations, but this will ensure we have enough staff on hand to serve you.

We’re not a late night joint, so make your evening plans accordingly. And we're not a boat-friendly destination... no dock & big tides make for precarious landings.

Final piece of advice: food comes out when it's ready, so we recommend sharing plates.
