Ran into this food trailer on a Saturday, ordered a dozen raw oysters, oyster tacos, and fried oysters. The raw oysters were outstanding. Owner said they were from two miles away and pulled out of the water that morning (less than four hours before). The taste was spectacular, perfect fresh, clean, and slight salt finish. Fried oysters were great as well, light batter so you could still taste the flavor of the oyster. Honestly, best oysters we have had. Find this food trailer when on the northern neck (hint: see Facebook posts for their daily location).

Ate here twice while at the Dog and Oyster winery. The seafood is fresh out of the water that morning and is really delicious.

Had the fried oyster tacos, that are served with a Sriracha slaw, which is very limey with a kick (but not too much). I liked them so much I went back the next day and got it again. The soft shell crabs and fried oysters are also just perfectly crispy and flavorful.

Bryan and the rest of the staff are very nice. If you get a chance to eat here, you won't be disappointed!

Ran into Byrds at the Dog and Oyster Winery. Great fresh oysters - just hours out of the river. Followed up with some fried oysters - just as good. Yum Yum!

Byrd's Seafood is located at located on site of The Dog and Oyster Vineyard in Irvington, Va. They serve “fresh out of the water” local oysters so very good. We tried fresh oysters first sooo.. fresh so good. Next deep fried oyster, like popcorn shrimp but better, melt in your mouth goodness . Next fried soft-shell crab in a homemade remoulade sauce I'm in heaven ! Finally Oyster Taco's if you have one last meal in your life , this is the one to choose ! Bam OMG crazy tasty, yes I had three. If your in the Va. this is a must stop. Thank you Bryan Byrd !
