Oyster New Year

Join Elliott’s Oyster House on November 2, 2019 for Oyster New Year celebrating the annual return of the peak shellfish season! As the cloudy, cool fall weather moves into the Puget Sound region, the icy north Pacific Ocean current entice shellfish to come into their prime; developing a crisp, firm texture and clean taste characteristics.

Eat, drink and be eco-friendly at the sell-out event and the biggest oyster party on the West Coast! Featuring 30+ varieties of local oysters shucked to order at our 150-foot oyster bar, a fresh seafood buffet, live music and more.  All proceeds benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.

A few special features include a raffle with fabulous prizes, the Oyster Luge and the Most Beautiful Oyster contest. You don’t want to miss this amazing event!


Walrus & Carpenter

Hosted by Taylor Shellfish Farms as a benefit for the Puget Sound Restoration Fund, the Walrus & Carpenter picnics provide the ultimate oyster-eating experience.  The nighttime, low tide picnic takes place by lantern and moonlight in Taylor’s Totten Inlet oyster bed. Icy gusts of wind off the bay will invigorate your experience. Take a shucking lesson before dining on these plump, sweet oysters just rousted from their beds. Devour the freshly opened delicacies paired with award-wining “oyster wines” served in sparkling Reidel stemware. The perfect blend of magic and madness. As the tide rises, revel in a blazing bonfire awaiting you on the beach and savor a steaming cup of chowder. This is an experience not to be missed.  All proceeds for these unique events benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.

Thank you to everyone who attended our winter of 2019 low tide picnics!  What an amazing adventure we all had at the events.  Please consider joining us next year.  Tickets will go on sale November 1, 2019.

Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery

Look for the Vodka & Oysters at The Distillery event in 2020, hosted by Bainbridge Organic Distillers.  It will be a wonderful afternoon sampling local oysters and craft vodka cocktails. In addition to raw oyster service, we serve oysters off the grill with lemon, garlic and a touch of red pepper flake and deep fried oysters are the starring ingredient in a hearty chowder.

Puget Sound Restoration Fund will once again provide oysters for the event, including our native Port Madison Petites, raised right on the shores of Bainbridge Island.

All proceeds benefit Puget Sound Restoration Fund.  Check back here or at Bainbridge Organic Distillers events page for this great event in 2020!
