The oysters were really tasty. They had toasted cheese sandwiches for the kids. Only problem is very high stools so not really anywhere easy for kids to sit inside but totally worth it for awesome oysters!!!

American River is a gorgeous little enclave on Kangaroo Island in which The Oyster Farm Shop nestles. We took away a couple of dozen freshly shucked oysters and the best part of a kilo of King George Whiting to our beachside retreat in Penneshaw as the worst storm in 50 years howled and roared around us.

There is so much more than oysters on the menu and the staff are friendly and talk you through the menu. We were also able to purchase a small bottle of Dudley... More

I was so excited to try this place but the oysters were particularly tiny (the price was not). I also wanted to try marron here but they didn't have any at lunch time.
