We had a few dozen of oysters and clams at this place. They have a great selection of both east and west coast oysters. 3 lb Lobster special was also a plus here as well! I definitely will frequent this place.

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.

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.

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.
