Lady's Island Oyster
Oysters have always been a part of Frank Roberts’s life. Originally from Maryland, Roberts’s family moved to Connecticut where Roberts worked as a police officer and fished commercially at night. He eventually landed in Beaufort, South Carolina, a spot he considers to be the perfect environment for growing oysters. In 2014 Lady’s Island Oyster grew almost three million single oysters. The Single Lady Oyster is served in Charleston restaurants including The Ordinary, Cypress, Fleet Landing, Peninsula Grill, and Leon’s Fine Poultry and Oysters.
