    Rappahnnock Oyster Co Expands to Charleston

    November 30, 2016

    Rappahannock Oyster Company has been part of the fabric of the Chesapeake Bay community since 2002, when co-owners Travis and Ryan Croxton took over their family’s 100 year-old oyster farm, reinvigorating the local oyster industry. They are thrilled to continue to grow their company and head to Charleston, opening in the Cigar Factory in early 2017.


    Not your ordinary oyster bar, Rappahannock Oyster Bar in Charleston will be a bar, restaurant, and market offering a high quality menu of light and bright seafood-focused dishes, raw bar, and locally-inspired cocktails. Chef Kevin Kelley, who established the Rappahannock Oyster Bar in Washington D.C. as a local favorite, will oversee the menu, bringing global flavor influences to his seasonal preparations.

    The restaurant will share a pantry with a market in the front of the space, allowing guests to purchase many of the same ingredients used by the kitchen, including fresh Rappahannock oysters. Guests can enjoy their oysters, dishes, and drinks outside on the space’s patio, which seats 46, or within the 152-seat indoor bar and dining room.
