Due to the warmer than normal temperatures in the Gulf, we will NOT be
carrying SHELL OYSTERS FOR THANKSGIVING, only shucked.
We WILL have shell oysters for Christmas and New Years because the
Gulf will be at way colder temps than it is now.
We had issues with lots of gapers last year at Thanksgiving due to the water
being too warm.. Same thing is the case at present.
That is why hurricanes are still a pain in the rear right now.
Floyd's prides ourselves in having the nicest, freshest, juiciest Gulf of Mexico shell
and shucked oysters in the South. Floyd's has sold top quality Nelson's brand
oysters from Bon Secour Fisheries in Alabama and other sources for over 35
years. All our oysters are safe and certified and come from licensed producers in
AL, LA and TX. They come with tags that show when and where they came out of
the water and we keep these health tags on file for 90 days by law.
Our oysters are NEVER frozen and NEVER imported.
Larry is our in-house oyster Quality Control Monitor,he checks each batch that
comes in for juiciness, flavor and quality. (Quit eating all the oysters, Larry, leave
us some to sell, darn it!) Larry also gives FREE oyster shucking (opening a shell
oyster) instructions if you need to learn how.
Peak time to get the BEST oysters is Thanksgiving thru Fathers Day,
when the water is coldest.
WHERE THEY COME FROM
We get our fresh oysters from Louisiana, Texas and Alabama.
WHEN WE GET THEM
Shipments come in two times per week: Wednesdays and Fridays.

shell oysters by the single oyster, dozen or by the full box. Boxes weigh 35
pounds and contain between 6 and 9 dozen oysters in the shell, depending on

shipped to us.
HOW TO ORDER OYSTERS
Please order in advance to be guaranteed to have oysters for your
weekend parties. We keep extra fresh oysters on hand that we sell first come, first
serve, but keep in mind, they come from the Gulf and have to be brought in 2
times per week, so when they're gone, they're gone! Order by closing time
Saturday for Thursday, Friday and Saturday pickup the following week.
