Fodor's Expert Review Malpeque Oyster Barn

$$$ Malpeque Seafood

There's nowhere better to enjoy world-famous Malpeque oysters than this casual, family-run wharf-side eatery right at the source—you can see their beds right outside the window. Oysters can be prepared several ways, but purists should just order a dozen unadorned (with a cold beer as an accompaniment), then slurp away. Chowder, steamed mussels, lobster rolls, and similar fare appear on the menu as well, and there is a retail outlet in case you want to take some seafood home.
