The chowder was as good as advertised, but the rest of our food was very uneven. The lobster tail that came with my special was great, but the two pieces of fish were dry and over cooked. My mom liked the bouillabaise and my dad his shrimp risotto, but all agreed we had a better meal the previous night at... More

The food here is good, however it is pricey even by tourist spot standards. The restaurant is on the water with a view if the drawbridge.

This was one of the best meals we'd had for ages and certainly a food highlight on out 4 week trip. Great service, tasty food, lovely views and all for a very reasonable price. Definitely recommend you give this place a go.

The S and P Oyster Co was just okay. Service was slow, food was so-so (wahoo was the special and it was so dry it was hard to choke it down,) and the indoor seating was terribly noisy. The outdoor dining area is beautiful and made for a pleasant place to spend some time.

We recently dined here and were not impressed with all the awards listed. The fish we were served -Wahoo- was not prepared well and should not have been served. The service by our two waitresses was poor and it took over twenty minutes to get our check paid. The location is nice and we waited for an outside table, but... More

Really beautiful setting for dinner. We were seated on the outside deck for dinner and were able to watch the sun go down. Riverside dining at its best. The tables were set with old fashioned oil lamps as the sun set, and the view was spectacular. Add to that really great seafood. We were able to view the old historic... More

I'm no seasoned food critic, but i have to say that this restaurant deserves a truthful review. For starters, the drinks were underwhelming; there was barely any alcohol in them. The "award winning" clam chowder was fairly small for a cup, and too thick for my liking. Furthermore, for my main course I had the salmon which was incredibly small... More

Friends and I had a wonderful lunch. The seafood dishes were out of this world. We sat right by the water and enjoyed a great lunch and a bottle of wine.

My family and I were excited to eat at this restaurant, especially because of its beautifully landscaped outdoor eating area and its views of the river. Well, we never got the chance because you cannot bring in a stroller or have an infant on your lap. You have to have a seat. How ridiculous! Will not recommend this to families... More
