Their chowder was just beyond words. I wasnt a huge fan of the clams. They had a pretty good oyster selection as well.

Fresh, tasty oysters. Love the caviar special (although it’s obviously not really caviar). The lobster was great as well. It’s a small bar with minimal room and long waits, but I would definitely go back
