I came here with some friends recently and the food was great. We shared the crab dip appetizer and it was something special. Lots of restaurants have crab dip but this was a cut above most.

Great steamed seafood. Menu can be a little limited for non-seafood lovers. Place has charm and my 15 year-old son fell in love with one of the waitresses.

All steamed or broiled seafood. The oysters and crab legs are excellent. No fried food. Highly recommend it if you like seafood. Atmosphere is rustic with picnic tables.

This restaurant was fantastic but the waitress with blonde braided hair made my experience worthwhile. You are the most beautiful girl I have ever seen in my life. Thank you for being so attractive. You're amazing. My snapchat Instagram and twitter names are cjfalchi.

There is this waitress there and she's the hottest girl I've ever seen. I have to say that if I knew her schedule, I would be there every time she's there.

My fav is raw. Dare I say it, better than Elijah's. The only reason they did not get 5 stars is because they are not... More

We've been there twice and ate at the tables on the sidewalk both times. Enjoyed the crab legs and shrimp, the music (from a neighboring rooftop bar), and excellent service. Cannot go wrong here.

It is a small oyster bar but the service was great and the seafood was excellent. It is family friendly and the prices are very reasonable
