WATERFRONT DINING

OOyster Factory

The Old Oyster Factory was built on the site of an original oyster cannery. From 1925 until 1990’s, 1700 acres of nearby creeks and wetlands were harvested and their yield brought to a one-story concrete building located directly under the restaurant. After canning, the oysters were shipped all over the Lowcountry bearing the appellation of the Broad Creek Oyster Factory. Today, this iconic waterfront dining destination has stunning views of the Lowcountry on Broad Creek.
