Our Proprietary Oysters

Sometimes a little mystery in life can be a good thing. The thrill of untangling a Sherlock Holmes story, for example, or the exciting uncertainty of embarking on a new business venture. At other times say, eating raw oysters-any amount of mystery is a terrible idea. 

That's why we worked with Rappahannock River Oysters (RRO) in Virginia to develop the Emersum Oyster. (As in 'em are some good oysters.') Exclusive to Jax Fish House, the Emersum is the result of months of cooperation and research with RRO, which got its start in the Chesapeake Bay in 1899. Resurrected by cousins Ryan and Travis Croxton in 2002, the young upstarts have turned the oyster world on its, um, ear while embracing sustainability in their oyster growing practices. 

Which means that we can know for certain that for every Emersum grown, dozens of wild oysters are seeded, improving the ecosystem of the Chesapeake Bay. Another thing we know for certain? The Emersum is the freshest bivalve this side of either coast, with a size, taste, texture, and liquor that you can count on every time. 

We're certain that you'll love them or your money back.
