Murder Point Oyster Company opens location at The Wharf

Murder Point Oyster Company now has a retail location in Orange Beach. The Bayou La Batre based company held its grand opening June 10 at The Wharf location.

Murder Point Oyster Company is a family-owned business committed to bringing the best oysters love can craft to their customers. For the last five generations, Murder Point has made a living working the natural resources of the Gulf of Mexico from catching shrimp or fish to raising love-crafted oysters.

Murder Points are exclusively grown in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico using a long line method developed in Australia. The oysters are spawned from the species Crassostrea virginica, also known as the Eastern/American oyster. Murder Point Oysters thrive in the unique conditions off Alabama’s coastline, which produces a full, rich and creamy taste with a light metallic finish and a drop of butter flavor in each one.

The new retail location at The Wharf sells oysters by the dozen or you can pick up a sack of 100. Take the oysters home or sit out front at the shucking station and enjoy a dozen with friends. The location also carries fresh local seafood like shrimp, crab cakes, crawfish pie and stuffed shrimp as well as premium steaks, beef and caviar. You can also pick up Murder Point t-shirts and souvenirs.
