Nice restaurant with excellent service -- at least it was for our recent Sunday brunch -- with great atmosphere. Wish the food had equalled our service. The restaurant brags about its world famous oysters but my wife said her fried oysters were only mediocre. That's the way I felt about my crab cakes, and my daughter said her Uptowner sandwich (allegedly ribeye) wasn't even up to that standard. The beer battered fries were pretty good, though. We'll give it another try next time we're on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, but there are some other places we need to check out first. (An aside: First time I've been to the Coast since a month after Hurricane Katrina. It's made a great comeback; remarkable, really, We'll be back.)
