Great bar with a good selection of oysters. A fun place for date night or girls night out! Great location by the waterfront across from the Empress Hotel. Steps away from the causeway from downtown entertainment.

We loved the casual booths-around-the-bar setting and really enjoyed two rounds of oysters. Staff was very friendly too.
