Fresh Seafood X Cold Beer


"It was a bold man that first ate an oyster."

Located in the Heart of Hickory, Standard Oyster Company is a purveyor of fresh and seasonal seafood. 


Standard Oyster Company opened in April 2016. It was cultivated and brought to life by seafood enthusiasts for seafood enthusiasts. Our mission is to create a energetic dining experience that includes a vast array of oysters and fresh seafood. 

Our hole-in-the-wall space is inspired by our Founder's own vibe, resulting in a laid back and industrial "all bar" setting that is true to the core. Once stepping inside you're no longer in Hickory, instead an oasis of urban society. Indulge in chilled seafood platters, steamed shellfish, and other classic American fare. Our full bar highlights regional spirits, great wine, and North Carolina beers.
