‘The Local Oyster’ Closing on November 11th

| November 7, 2023 | 0 Comments

Yesterday on social media, The Local Oyster announced it will be closing its locations in Locust Point and Mount Vernon. Its last day of service will be Saturday, November 11th.

The Local Oyster first opened in Locust Point in October 2022. It was the second location for the company.

The Local Oyster occupies a 3,800 sq. ft. building at 838 E. Fort Ave. This location was the former home of Rallo’s Restaurant and Big Matty’s Diner, but had been vacant since 2015.

From The Local Oyster’s Instagram page:

We are humbled by your support over the years but it is with heavy hearts that we regret to inform you that both The Local Oyster Mount Vernon and Locust Point will be closing their doors for good this Saturday Nov 11.

We have given it our best effort and done everything we can but unfortunately the time has come and the hard decision had to be made. This is a sad moment but it’s also an opportunity to reflect on all of the good work we’ve done for the Baltimore community over the past 10 years.

We would like to thank our incredible team for making everyday fun… We have built a family and it truly has been a pleasure working alongside you guys, even while doing the dishes.

We would like to thank Bozzuto, Warhorse Cities and WPM for their partnership while helping us navigate the bumpy and ever changing hospitality landscape.

Most importantly we’d like to thank our friends, family and guests who have supported us and have helped make The Local Oyster a household name in Baltimore. We Love you guys.

The Local Oyster is not going away. We will be refocusing our efforts on catering and events as we reset and figure out where the road ahead will lead us.

Please come out this week to bid farewell, have a drink, share a few laughs and tip the shit out of your bartenders.

When one door closes another one opens… We’re gonna miss you all but I promise we will be seeing each other again soon.

Right now, our focus is taking care of our team and ourselves. So, we probably won’t respond to you quickly if you reach out. For press inquiries, please reach out to kathleen@truechesapeake.com

With sincere appreciation,
Nick and The Local Oyster family.
