This was truly one of the most delicious and memorable meals my husband and I have ever had. Everything was above and beyond, some of the best food we've eaten. Every single thing we ordered was divine! The fried oyster roll was outrageously good, so good we had to get another. The oyster selection was fantastic, every single one we... More

First of all, this is not your garden variety lobster roll joint, and, depending on your tastes, that could be a good or bad thing. If you're expecting a paper boat filled with fried clams or a hot dog roll filled with large chunks of lobster, you're in the wrong place. But the menu is interesting and the food is... More

Although it was only $7,... More

We stopped by around 7:30pm on a Friday night during peak season and the line was 2.5 hours long without nearby parking. It was raining so we decided to try another day. Came back for lunch at 11:30 and was able to find a street parking close by and were seated very promptly. Ordered 2 dozens of assorted oysters, NES... More

Maybe it's me (my husband wanted to go here), but the portions for the "entrees" were so tiny for the price. Everything tasted great, and I especially enjoyed my crab roll. But seriously, these were tapas-sized plates, so be prepared to order many dishes. I never say this about restaurants, but I honestly left a little hungry--and I am a... More

Come here if you are not hungry just meet friends and chat. The portion is really tiny. The clam chowder soup tastes weird
