In our Tiny Town of BIG Hearts.... Colonial Beach, Virginia, Denson's Grocery and R&B Oyster Bar takes FRESH Seafood to another level. That is our Commitment to our customers! Think about how many times you have gone to the docks in North Carolina or South Carolina to enjoy Fresh, Never Frozen Wild Caught Shrimp 'Right off the Boat'...That is all we serve in our Courtyard and Patio. It takes a little 'Doing', but we make it happen. No Imported cheap Crab Meat (Just the Real Stuff from Capt. Faunce of Montross, VA), No Farm Raised Fish. What we do is a Love and a passion. Our Grass Fed/Grain Finished Beef....2 Miles as the Crow Flies from our Front Door. (Maybe 2.5 to 3) we have never measured, but we are pretty sure no more than 3 miles max)! No matter the miles, this cattle is Humanely raised on a Virginia Century Farm by the Powell Family. It's Pretty impressive that this farm has been continually operated by the same family over many generations. Foodservice Trucks do NOT deliver our Fresh Seafood.
