Wild Dams are oysters that are harvested by hand from the banks of the Damariscotta River where they grow wild. These unadulterated, free range bivalves have a sweet plump meat and a clean, crisp, briny finish that fans of this growing area will be well accustomed to!
Wilds are great on the half shell, but are also an excellent option for grilling, frying and steaming!

Several had to be discarded - either full of mud or just did not appear to be fresh. For the most part they did not have the briny freshness I have come to expect from GP oysters. Will be in Maine next week so hope to have better luck then.
We’ve ordered from Glidden Point probably 7-8 times over the past year or two, and our experiences previously had been wonderful. My wife and I throw an annual summer party/seafood boil and have ordered Glidden Point oysters in the past and they’ve been delightful. However, this year they were out of the cocktail oysters and so we went with the Brickyards, Wild Dams, and Topsiders (though the Topsiders and Wild Dams were not labeled, so it is difficult to say which was which). This was very disappointing. Numerous oysters fractured while shucking leaving behind small fragments of the shell inside. We ordered over 100 oysters which would normally be consumed within an hour for the number of guests, but these were so difficult to eat because of the fragments left behind that over half of our order went to waste.
The wild dams are amazing. I found them super easy to shuck and even easier to enjoy! I will definitely be ordering more.
My oysters of choice never fail. I love ordering the wild dams because they tend to be big plump juicy and deliciously briny. And you get 50 for$100! Fresh out of the Damariscotta River. Glidden Point always delivers them fresh, next day delivery. A taste of Maine in every slurp!
These oysters have awesome flavor. The brininess is perfect for raw oysters and also good for Rockefeller style. My only concern is the size but this is the nature of naturally grown oysters.
