“Great restaurant for oysters”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013 credit card Amex Cardmember Review

We went there for friends' reunion. The oysters are really nice which we ordered one dozen and then another. The clams were good as well. Really a nice place for friends to hang out.

“very nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 August 2013

We ordered the 2 lb lobster for 2, an outstanding meal. Both the potato salad and corn on the cob were awesome, as well as the lobster. The servers were quick and very attentive, but the place was not very crowded (not sure why) on the Saturday evening after 6:30 pm we were there. The Dr. Seuss wallpaper going down the stairs, and the crossword puzzle wallpaper in the rest room (with the amusingly marked door!) on the lower level-added to the interesting atmosphere.

“Seafood Gem on 5th”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2013

Found this place more or less by accident, but quite a find! Food was excellent. Get the wine pairing (about another $25 per person) with the 3 or 4-course prix fixe (ours ran about $75/person), and you've got a pretty good bargain, all told.
