Yummy Food

This was our first time here, and we had no idea what we were getting into. We were surprised to see that all indoor seating is at a counter and the majority of it is at the bar.

The parking isn't good, but the food is always good and also Oyster's are very good on the half shell. Very good place to eat.

Best Seafood in the city. Best prices too. Boiled and fried shrimp are the best anywhere. Oysters on the half shell are the best with a low price.
