Book well in advance or be prepared to wait. Insider tip - the bar keeps its own waiting list for seats at the bar. The high top tables in the bar entry are very tight but you can make it work. Try the oyster shooters...More

The place did not take reservations due to the renovation in the second floor. Therefore, we went there early before opening time and luckily had a chance to take a seat. Fresh raw oyster choices were a perfect experience as a starter. Then we ordered...More

We visited this restaurant during the week at lunch time just as they opened at noon. It's a popular place and was full within the next 40 minutes. We really enjoyed their fresh oysters, crab soup, lobster chopped salad and fried oyster sandwich. All were...More

The food was subpar and the service was unacceptable. We ordered the lobster salad (the amount was small, no substance, and just a few bites of lobster) and crab cakes (the crab cakes were mainly bread). Definitely not worth the price we paid. We left...More

The best oysters & seafood I have ever eaten. It's certainly more a bar/oyster house than a restaurant. But that's what makes it so much fun! Great, pleasant, friendly staff. Prices are reasonable considering the quality of food they serve.

No doubt it’s number 3 on Tripadvisor. I had read really good comments both for lobster roll and crab cake; however, on this occasion I went for the roll. It was, honestly, the best lobster roll I ever had. Portion was adequate and taste was...More

There’s street parking around the area but you will have to walk to the place. I walked in for lunch on Friday and Saturday without much trouble. I imagine dinner might be a different story.
