We happened upon this place (which was way larger than we thought!) and were pleasantly surprised. The clam chowder and oysters are worth going back for. Mondays and Tuesday are half price oysters all day!

I've been back a few times and every time I was so disappointed. Went with a group of coworkers for lunch and the staff was not friendly. The waitress who served us was in a bad mood. Had the lobster grill cheese and it was so greasy I couldn't finish it. Went with a friend of mine a few weeks... More

Outstanding food with an emphasis on seafood. The food was carefully prepared with personal slants taken into consideration. Service is outstanding. Highly recommended for that special occasion.

Great for lunch -- reasonable and big selection. Dinner is more so just seafood and expensive. Also, the patios are amazing!

Mom was excited to try it, because she's looking for a new "spot" so we took her for mother's day. I'll try and keep it short. Cauliflower soup was pretty much just blended cauliflower and water. no taste, none of us could eat it, sent it back. main course, my sister got steak. It was so fatty and gristly she... More

Popped in with our daughter on a whim. We just wanted a lighter dinner - they had some great choices. The oysters were very good with a nice variety of condiments. My wife and daughter enjoyed their salads. The wine choices were extensive. They have a formal dining area, a more casual bar-type layout and a nice outdoor patio. It... More

Very turned off by dinner there last year. Food was decent, service was pretty good, but once the bar crowd started to file in, our wait staff was non existent. Didn't realize this was a big party bar and people were roaming by our table in the dining area side. Could not hear conversation at all. The crowds were mostly... More

We went to see a friend play in his band and decided to go early and have dinner. The seafood selection was good, pricing on the high side. From lobster ravioli, to shrimp fettucine and fresh oysters $3.00 each and 3 different types to choose from. The oysters came with different sauces... I like my plain. Anyways we enjoyed a... More
