    I realized that i might not be the biggest fan of raw oysters. But that isn't the restaurants fault. I was trying something new and just wasn't in love with the raw oysters like i thought i would be. The ambiance and service was amazing and all around a 5 star experience.

    The oysters and clams were wonderful. What was odd is that things in our order (for 4 people) arrived at odd intervals. Initially 2 individual fresh oysters, then some more, cooked oysters. Lovely. Then 15 min later the clam dish (for 1). Then finally, 45 minutes after our order, the 2 panini came. So each of us ate individual meals, while the others watched! Go for the shellfish and ambience, and hope that they get the timing of their kitchen service in synch before you arrive.

    You won't get oysters any fresher-you can watch them harvested from in front of you and brought directly up to the outdoor area. Staff are fun, knowledgeable and happy to share how to shuck and prepare them (raw or barbequed).

    Wescott never disappoints! Jackson was our server and he was great. The whole crew is amazing including the farmers working hard out on the docks while happy customers dine. It was raining, but we were dry under the tables umbrella and toasty with cozy blankets given to us by the staff. Food was incredible and presentation beautiful. By far the most special place to eat on SJ!

    Absolutely marvelous location, food and service at Wescott Bay! We enjoyed dining outdoors with a view of the bay, oyster flats and the pastoral landscape. The oysters are delicate and just the right size! We had both raw on the half shell and a few grilled as well as the tomato/stone fruit salad, piping hot baguette with butter, locally grown greens with a delightful vinaigrette and a panini…..PLUS a bottle of Washington Orcas Project Albariño.

    First time to San Juan Islands. Westcott Bay Shellfish Co was highly recommended & so glad to make reservations. Absolutely incredible - the food, atmosphere & oysters were great. It is a little pricey but very much worth it. We live in North Carolina and love oysters the grilled Chipotle Bourbon were outstanding!

    Very nice setting on water, staff very helpful. Oysters were so so. If you don’t like lemon or shallot vinegar, then you would be eating plain and they were small, which may be a sign of the times with climate changes. Lunch was very expensive.
