  • Standard Oyster Company creates an energetic dining experience that includes a vast array of oysters and fresh seafood. Our hole-in-the wall vibe results in a laid-back and industrial “all bar” setting that’s true to the core. Discover the hand-scribed chalkboards highlighting our ever-evolving oyster and seafood selection. Indulge in chilled platters, steamed shellfish, and other classic America fare. Our full bar focuses on regional spirits, great wine, and North Carolina beers (including our own Standard Oyster Stout).
