My wife and I traveled to Seattle for our honeymoon in April of 2018 and the folks at the hotel recommended Taylor Shellfish as a great spot for fresh oysters. We had a blast! Our favorite items were the Dungeness Crab and the Fat Bastards. So for New Years this year I ordered up some Fat Bastards and learned to schuck them (it wasn’t that hard)! Highly recommend these delicious little bivalves and the location on Capitol Hill! We will be ordering again.
These guys are wonderful. A day delayed through FedEx but arrived fresh and closed and five days later I still only have one that has died. They kept in the fridge and they are still fresh. I favor a mignonette and a ponzu sauce with soy and yuzu.
This is our 3rd or 4th order and we’ve always had a great experience and recovered great oysters! My only issue with our recent order is that I had requested delivery on New Year’s Eve so we could enjoy the oysters on New Years Day (something of a tradition). We were out of town until NYE and, due to shipping issues, Taylor informed us that they were shipping our order early for delivery the day prior to give FedEx the change to reattempt delivery. Unfortunately, we were scheduled to be out of town until our requested delivery date but FedEx delivered the package without the required signature. By the time we got home, half of our oysters had opened and couldn’t be consumed. While I appreciate that they were taking steps to ensure delivery by the requested date, it would have been nice to have received notification that this may have occurred prior to placing the order. However, the quality is always great so we will most likely be ordering again, just a little disappointed on this one.
Always a delight eating these oysters. Fresh, clean and thoroughly delicious. Nice briny finish.
Delicious, salty second time for ordering Had difficulty with FedEx delivery & probably won’t order again unless can use UPS for delivery
This was my second order since I enjoyed the first so much. The second shipment of oysters was smaller than the first, disappointing but still delicious.
These oysters were plump and medium in size with a bright, briny flavor. Wonderful! Delivered well chilled and nicely package we enjoyed our meal!
Amazing taste! Briny and plump. Great to eat on the half shell, or to use in recipes. I grew up on the Eastern Shore of MD. These are the first "West Coast" oysters that even come close to the taste of the oysters from the Chesapeake Bay. I will totally buy them again!!!
I live in NY, Taylor is the only place I order my oysters from, always fresh, impeccably packed and always delicious. These are great tasting and plump. My only regret is I didn't order more as they went as fast as I could shuck them!
