The quirky name, The Dog and Oyster, was created to honor the rescue dogs that rescue the grapes from deer and other grape lovers; and, to honor the oyster, one of the Chesapeake Bay region's greatest assets. The Dog and Oyster is located just a bike ride away from the highly acclaimed Hope and Glory Inn.
