Seafood
We are growers of oysters, mussels and clams in the renowned waters of Westcott Bay on San Juan Island, Washington. The farm opens its Tide Tables to visitors for a unique lunch experience of the farm's freshly harvested shellfish, as well as fresh farm salads, charcuterie and cheese boards. This is a summertime LUNCH-ONLY spot, and tables book up well in advance. Please bring proof of your reservation with you (your Open Table email or text confirmation). We seat lunch service from 11-4 (closed Tuesdays). Our season is Memorial Day through Labor Day. Closed fall/winter/spring.

Fantastic place for an outdoor lunch in the sun eating fresh oysters, grilled or raw, from 50 feet away. Can't beat it!

Our experience here was the highlight of our weekend on San Juan Island. Nothing beats fresh seafood straight from the water. The atmosphere was perfect, laid back yet so outstanding. We can’t wait to visit again!

Great place for oysters. The only negative is we can't pick our own oysters. But that's probably because of Covid restrictions. Highly recommended!

Lovely outdoor seating and excellent shellfish. I have to go to Westcott when I am in the San Juan’s. The service it great, they had great spaces of tables with COVID. Try the grilled oysters and you can never go wrong with the chilled ones too!

The setting is amazing, right on the water looking at westcott bay. The food is fantastic. The oysters, both raw and grilled, were so tasty. The server gave us an great demonstration for shucking oysters and we had success shucking our own! This place cannot be beat.

What a fun experience!! You can order the oysters shucked, or do it yourself. Gotta do it yourself!! The oysters were delicious. The grilled were also amazing. The salad was fresh and delicious. All tables are outside, with an astounding views. Beer is cold. Service was amazing. Loved this place and will return next time I'm on the island.

We have lived on island for 20 years and have purchased shellfish from the old oyster farm-walk in only and pick up.
Westcott Bay Shellfish is the ultimate island dining experience around. Shuck,slurp,and toss right on the beach!

Westcott Bay Shellfish Co is a unique, quintessentially northwest dining experience. I recommend you sit at an outdoor table by the beach shucking your own fresh oysters complimented by local organic cheeses, speciality meats , bakery goods and great northwest beer and wines. Whether you drive in or arrive via your boat you will have a memorable dining experience. The staff are very helpful and customer focused.

Always a wonderful place to stop for a bit of fresh seafood And a bit of “R&R”. Great service (as always). Love the (new) Reservation system and being able to pick up fresh seafood to take home and enjoy later.
I always recommend friends also visit when they are nearby.

Only open a few more weeks before seasonal shutdown. Reservations required. Outdoor picnic table dining but oysters could not be more “farm fresh”. Try as many grilled oysters as you can. Outstanding. Fresh greens locally sourced also bakery items (bread and choc. brownie) Great service. Good selection of wine and beer...most locally sourced also. Fun stop for an afternoon. Only open 11-5.

First time! Clams were tender, caprasi salad with balsamic vinegar, wonderful. Cheese board plentiful and delightful combo of textures. Coconut water hit the spot. Will make this one part of our new gotos! Oysters were delicate and juicy.

We’ll be back!
