Restaurant details
Reviewed 8 August 2018 via mobile

My family was on vacation in the Kilmarnock, Virginia area and an internet search brought up Byrd's seafood as the best seafood restaurant in the area. A little more digging showed that Byrd's also has a food truck that pops up at various places locally. We saw that it was going to be at the Kilmarnock Brewhaus (separate review) and we decided to go. The menu is limited, but everything we had was outstanding. The crabmeat quesadilla was fantastic. The only complaint would be that the portion sizes were a bit small, considering the price. But the food was so good I can't even ding them a star for it. If you're anywhere in coastal Virginia or upper North Carolina and you see the Byrd's seafood truck someplace, try it!

Enjoyed chatting with Byrd's Seafood family last Saturday at the Boys' n Girls' Club Fine Arts Festival in Irvington, VA. Byrd's food truck was right on time. as I had exhausted myself buying photographs and handmade jewelry. I greedily purchased Fried Oyster Tacos and Fish Tacos made with Triple Tail (similar to Grouper.) Both came with a tasty Remoulade sauce, colorful cabbage ribbons, soft tortillas, and plenty of lively banter about our various cheffing experiences. Check out Byrd's Seafood Truck whenever you're in the Northern Neck; your tickled tummy will thank you!

#1 Food Truck in the NNK for sure! No longer located on-site at 170 White Fences Dr but Bryan has the Food Truck out and about near Irvington, Kilmarnock and White Stone. Check out his website at byrdsseafood.com and he always posts his locations and menu of the day! Don't miss out on the freshest oysters and other specialities around!

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!
