“The first time I tried a Murder Point oyster, I couldn’t believe that they were grown in Alabama or in the south. The perfect briny flavor and the buttery finish just blew my mind. I could have ate all the oysters the Zirlotts were serving that day. I knew right then that I was going to serve these oysters to our guests at Fishers.”

"I just wanted to say that your oysters killed it tonight at our restaurant. I was lucky to get the first 100 from Taylor before anyone else. They really are great flavorful clean oysters with a cool story. I offered them as a 7th oyster tonight verbally and sold out- the staff loved telling our guest how special they were. Even without the story they are a great shucking oyster for my restaurant. Thanks again for your support on tweeter and keep them coming northeast."

“Many thanks to Rosa for giving us the info we needed to enjoy your incredible oyster. We went to Orange Beach for a week in early Oct and enjoyed them several times at Fishers. They are just incredible. Did not to eat the last one because I didn't want the experience to end. Ordered more than I can believe and enjoyed every one. Thank you for your hard work to produce such a unbelievably delicious oyster.”




Murder Point Oysters are raised in baskets in the open waters of the bay, just west of Bayou La Batre, Al. We use a method of longline farming throughout our 12 acres of farm waters. Unlike wild oysters, we are able to control the size of the oyster and harvest at just the right time to ensure the perfect salinity.
