This summer, Huntington Beach, California-based Ways & Means Oyster House will start shucking in The Bridgeport Village shopping center in Tigard. According to the press release, Ways & Means will share “the California coastal lifestyle” with a focus on oysters, small plates, and cocktails. And the venue will be sizable: Ways & Means tells Eater the space will be 4,789 square feet with seating for 150, including a 48-seat patio and 33-seat private dining space.

Ways & Means has its own brand of products, including a fleet of beverages, like Ways & Means Chardonnay, Ways & Means California Blonde Beer, Ways & Means 24-year-aged rum, etc. It also has its own Ways & Means Oysters, through a partnership with Tom Perry’s respected White Stone Oyster Farm in Virginia.

On the food front, Ways & Means will serve oysters from both the East and West coasts (sources are currently being confirmed). And the rest of the menu will offer both seafood classics, like Maine lobster rolls, and more creative options, like a jerk-glazed Atlantic salmon bowl with coconut rice and papaya salsa.

Ways & Means was established by Parnell and Jennifer Delcham and Dena Mathe in Orange, California, in 2013, and the company rebrand and relaunched in Huntington Beach in 2015. The Tigard location is its second location, with plans to expand to other areas of the West Coast.

When it opens at 7455 SW Bridgeport Rd., Ways & Means Oyster House will serve lunch and dinner daily, as well as weekend brunch. A retail area full of Ways & Means-brand kitchen items, beach-inspired products, and more will also be onsite.
