Rappahannock Oyster Co. to Move into Norfolk's Waterside District

Posted By on Tue, Nov 29, 2016 at 4:25 PM

Waterside District will have raw oysters to go with that craft beer and riverfront view when it reopens next year.

Baltimore-based developer The Cordish Companies announced Monday that Rappahannock Oyster Co. will be part of the revamped property, scheduled to open in April.

Rappahannock Oyster Co., based in Topping, is a family-operated business. About 15 years ago, cousins Travis and Ryan Croxton “revived” a lease on oyster beds signed by their great-grandfather in 1899, according to a news release. The partners have since expanded into the restaurant business.

Along with serving raw oysters in the central two-level market area of the Waterside building, the restaurant also will have a portable raw bar that can be used for events and festivals “at and around Waterside District.”

The tenant will join Guy Fieri’s Smokehouse, PBR, Blue Moon TapHouse, The Fudgery, Cogan’s Pizza, Carolina Cupcakery and Starr Hill Brewery. Other tenants have yet to be disclosed.

The developer has committed to a $40 million overhaul of the Norfolk property.
