I got a really good feeling about this place when we unwittingly walked in 4 minutes before the kitchen closed. (Apparently, we'd crossed a time zone somewhere and lost an hour.) However, the staff was totally copacetic about taking a large order at the last minute, and the service remained excellent thru-out our meal. The raw oysters were fat and salty, fried shrimp were piping hot, tasty, and grease-free. The crab cakes were sort of pasty, unfortunately, no big chunks of crab to be found. And be forewarned, they don't fry oysters...even though they're swimming in them and have no problem frying shrimp. What's up with that?? Atmosphere's pretty ho-hum unless you sit outside. But great staff and tasty food go a long way toward overcoming any deficiencies, so, two thumbs up, and we'll be back!
