“Not a restaurant but a great supplier of wonderful oysters! The tasting room is called Merrior.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

We have had their oysters for many occasions - crab feast, Thanksgiving, birthdays and always been very pleased. If you order a shipment to be freighted, they arrive in a cooler with dry ice and will stay alive in your fridge for much longer than I ever thought!

We have had them raw, grilled....always delicious and our guests think so, too!

“The best gourmet oyster dive and oysters in the world, yes the world.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Merrior, and its home at Locklies Marina is off the charts good. They've been visited by the best chefs in American, sell to great restaurants up and down the East Coast and have a delightful restuarant on the water at the marina that's not to be missed if you're a foodie, a water view lover and want a special lunch or dinner with friends. I'd give them six stars if I could.

“Seafood sliders and local beer samplers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2013

Such a relaxing Monday afternoon on the sand near the water. Great food, beer and the company of my husband!

Such a fun place. We learned that they ship oysters all over the country. I believe the restaurant is called Merrior.
