Everything was good. My friends went with the chowders and they were really delicious. I, being from the Gulf Of Mexico area, had to try the pricey fried oysters. They were fried with panko bread crumb, not my favorite breading, but they were tasty. Service...More

Great food, view, and nice friendly service! Can't ask for more when you are having lunch with a couple of good friends. Try the mussels for sure!

Unbelievably haughty server that basically mocked us for not liking the type of oysters that she served & prefers, other servers bringing us repeatedly food ordered by someone else, 1 hour wait between ordering and being served, poorly prepared food (so bad the "haughty" server...More

We came with a large group, drawn in by the nice patio. That is probably where the positives for this place end. The food took forever, one of our members had to constantly remind the staff about his order and it came after 40 minutes....More
