We were seated on the second floor next to the window and a view of the harbor. Our reservations were for 7:00 PM and we were seated right on time. Knowledgeable wait staff guided us through the oyster menu. My husband had a dozen oyster flight all from New England waters. Fantastic! I had the escargot in shells. For main... More

Seriously, this was just too good to be true. We were first told it would be a 20 min. wait and then all of a sudden a table with a view opened up on the second floor! The service was excellent and the food even better. We were offered complimentary champagne and a lobster bisque tasting for their 3rd year... More

Went here prior to a cruise. New it would be our best meal. Shrimp cocktail and oysters excellent and fresh. Lobster wedge salad the best. Rockfish very good as was loster roll with fries. Deserts were very good as well. Service quick. Need to make a reservation prior. Nice place to walk around but do not stray too far!!

Pull yourself away from the chains food in the inner harbor and go to Fells Point for this Gem. Its worth the trip. Had great service. The waiter took the time to go over the oysters on the raw bar with us to select the best ones for our taste. very good selection. Then we had the rock fish and... More

I ate at this resturant last night. The resturant has a good location in Fells Point with some outdoor seating. If you like oysters this is your place. However, I think that it is also important to note that I went to this resturant with limited oyster experience so there is still plenty to select from. Great beers on tap... More

Come to this place. It's the most amazing little restaurant in the area. The raw bar is fresh!!! I had the lobster till and it was to die for. $23. Sure seems expensive but totally worth it. Combined with good service it's a must to go to in Fells Point.

We dined last night. Two of us chose the lobster roll sandwich, one selected an oyster po'boy and we all three tried beach fries. Beware the homemade catsup is unusual! The hand cut fries are seasoned and delicious. We took desserts to the hotel since our dinner was early; bread pudding is exceptional, making us feel guilty after one bite....... More

Then when we get there they said it was reserved! Seriously! I was doing a site visit for my conference attendees . There... More

I'm sorry for any misunderstanding and that you weren't able to dine with us. It is correct that we do not take reservations on the patio. This is because if the weather were to turn, we would not be able to accommodate guests inside. When dinner service begins, our five table patio is open for seating as well, and we... More
