We stopped in hoping for raw oysters but the waitress talked us into the steamed oysters...which were good. The French dip sandwich was DELICIOUS. The service was a little slow but still an enjoyable place.

Went here later at night - 9 pm and still a wait, but it was worth it!!! The pizza was amazing, beer was cold and oysters were yummy. The live music added to the ambience and we had a great time!

Every time I've come here, it's extremely crowded and busy, but, to me, that's a good sign. I always get the seafood pizza and get it to go. It's amazing.
