Had basil/butter mussels and coconut lime mussels with a beer (Union Black). Restaurant is unimpressive, parking is rough, food is meh. Came in on a certificate and probably wouldn't go out of my way to come here. Server (Zach) was very kind and pleasant. Not a bad experience by any means, but wouldn't tell my friends and family to go.

This restaurant serves a large selection of seafood dishes. They have oyster stew and mussels with many types of sauces. The menu also includes paella for two.

You see the signs all over town for this place so I just had to find this place.The food did not disappoint, but I was there on a slow night and the place was pretty quiet....But I will be back for more Mussels.

I plan to return next week, it was that good! Best mussels I have ever eaten. Would love to try every variety, but it would take several trips. Well worth the trip from Albuquerque to Baltimore.

We went the day after Christmas. Oyster stew and crab soup just okay. Our muscles were good, but not particularly hot. Initially, stale bread was brought to the table, but was replaced with sliced artisan bread that was fresh.

This place is off the beaten path. We just went to the bar, got to meet the owner and hear him talk to other bar patrons ( Regulars). Felt welcome. Good beer and good atmosphere. Asked for a sticker and got 2 of them.

We stopped here based on other reviews. I was not disappointed by the food. The crab cakes were amazing, still the best I've had. We also had bacon wrapped shrimp and it was excellent. The atmosphere is nice. The only place they are lacking is service. We had a younger waiter who never came to check on us, I finally... More

Classis and simple. Server Mark was very nice and always checked on us. Had the Guiness Mussels special. Loved the sauce but too many closed mussels. The sauteed spinach was too salty for me. However, I would recommend tjis place as they have an exciting not too over the top menu. Will try to return and try the coconut spicy... More
