SoCal-Based Ways & Means Oyster House Declares Opening Date

The seafood restaurant will be massive

Ways & Means Oyster House

Mega seafood spot Ways & Means Oyster House tells Eater by email it will start shucking in Tigard’s Bridgeport Village on August 26. Based in Huntington Beach, California, Ways & Means serves a huge menu of seafood — including Maine lobster. The Oregon location will be its second overall, and, as first reported by Eater, Ways & Means is moving into a massive 4,789-square-feet venue with seating for 150 (patio not included), at 7331 SW Bridgeport Rd.

The August 26 grand opening looks as though it’ll be a community affair, centered on an oyster-eating competition between members of the Tigard Police Department, Tualatin Valley Fire & Rescue, and the Tualatin Police Department. Each oyster eater has 60 seconds to gobble as many oysters as possible, and the restaurant’s donating $3 per oyster to the winning competitor’s charity of choice.

The Ways & Means kitchen will also be boiling, frying, and shucking on August 26, and since that’s a Saturday, it’ll offer brunch, as well as lunch and dinner. A dollar per plate sold between 10 and 11 a.m. will be donated to the winning charity, too.

Ways & Means Oyster House is definitely one to watch. It’s a huge seafood offering in Greater Portland, and the company is clearly savvy, having its own brand of beer, wine, clothing, and more.
