The food was very good, it was busy but not a long wait. It is located right on Trade St. in the arts district.

“Outdoor Lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

Lunch was ok but I am from MD(known for good crabs) I had a little too much filling in my crab cake and not enough crabs. Staff was good and very polite.

“Very good oysters!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2014

I had drinks and oysters on the half with a co worker. Best oysters I have had in a long time and the seafood quesadilla was excellent. Parking to get to this location is really bad but it is worth it.

“Great Food! Great drinks!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014 via mobile

Fantastic food. If first time, get the bucket most definitely. Oysters are great appetizer. Service was subpar but I believe it may have been a one time incident. Overall FABULOUS!
