Lots of other good seafood options, as well, if you hit them at the right time. Met the owners and their son, and they were all... More

This is a small, rustic winery with a different atmosphere from the other standard along the Virginia Wine Trail. Since the last time we visited, they have added shaded communal tables for tasting or enjoying a glass of wine. The weekend midday oyster roast is a creative addition. The oyster tacos and Asian slaw are awesome. It is well worth... More

Kids loved the tractor and all of the dogs...plenty of space to play. We went in the afternoon for soft shell crabs which were absolutely delicious and Oyster tacos which were our of this world (food available fri-sun). Went back later for the wine tasting-all were very tasty and we enjoyed the info on each wine. In fact we had... More

We have been there once only to be received with a great deal of non-chalance by a server who recited information about the wine like a poorly-memorized script. We have travelled throughout the U.S. visiting wineries and collecting wines. There are several in Virginia well-worth visiting offering decent wines at a decent price. Unfortunately, this isn't one of them. All... More

Very cute place...very friendly. Loved seeing the rescue dogs in the vineyard. Love the farm tables and you could sign oyster shells if you had some.

We stopped for a chilled bottle of Pearl white wine paired with fried oyster tacos tacos and fried green tomatoes Wow. Eating under an umbrella in the vineyard. This is summertime living in the Northern neck of Virginia. Not to be missed.

The oysters lured me in...had never had a wine & oyster pairing. What fun! The wines are okay and the oysters were great. It was fun to do something different than other winery visits. The rescue or shelter dogs are sweet, they help keep the deer away from the vineyard grapes and have a nice place to romp and play.... More

Dog and Oyster Vineyard was outstanding. From the OVERSIZED cork screws at the entry point to the wonderful outdoor lounge area, it was a great winery visit. We will go back! There was a catering business there cooking fresh seafood (they are there on weekends) AWESOME soft shell crab bites and oyster tacos. The wines were good. The whole experience... More

We try to visit the Dog & Oyster once a year, since we love our wine & oysters! They have some new wines since our last visit, and they all were good. Our favorite wine of the tasting was Pearl, a nice Sauvignon Blanc, which we bought a bottle of to pair with our oysters! They also had soft shell... More
