Good Oysters Rockefeller

First, the hours on TA are wrong. They're open from lunch on and we stopped in for a late lunch. This is a bar. They bring you water in a red solo cup. They bring you plastic forks and knives with your food unless you ask for the real thing. However, the food is definitely better than bar food... read more

It's a small place but don't let that fool you. Justin was a great bartender. The crab bisque was superb. Seasoned beautifully with a little kick. The clams and oysters on a half shell were great and very reasonable. The clams casino and the oysters rockafeller were absolutely excellent. It's a new place for me but I can't wait to... More

This locals bar is rough around the edges, but makes up for it with much better than average food and atmosphere. Be ready for loud music, loud tv's, loud patrons and loud bartenders. Your attitude will determine your enjoyment. Drinks are served quickly ( and strongly ) We had the Oysters Rock - very good, Cream of Crab Soup -... More

I had a $25 restaurant.com voucher and we decided that this seemed worth checking out. We walked in to only a few people at the bar and one other booth occupied(I love going to... More

There is nothing fancy about this place, but the steamed shrimp and crab legs are the best you will find. With just the right amount of Old Bay seasoning they are terrific! They also... More

My friend and I stopped in here to grab some food and escape from the rain. We were the only people in the place. The servers were incredibly nice. We had crab legs and shrimp and they were both very good. The bathrooms were rough, very small ceiling tiles missing it seemed clean enough but needs some work. Live music... More
