“Very BUSY for a Sunday Lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

We dropped in for Sunday lunch as we were passing through the area. The restaurant was crowded and there was a 20 minute wait for a table outside. We were seated inside immediately, but there was a bit of a wait for service. The owner, or manager, was directing action and maybe a bit too aggressively. Our server was Bobby and our meal and drinks were delivered fairly quickly considering the number of customers. It was all too apparent that the restaurant needs several additional POI (Points of Sale) as servers were at times waiting 3 or 4 deep to get access to the computers. They might benefit from one or two staff members just running the checks??
We had oysters on the half shell and a steak salad both of which were good.

“The HookUp Hooks You Up”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Went there for lunch last week with some co-workers. Very impressed with the size of the place as well as the decor. It was chilly outside, so they had the deck closed off, but I'm sure that it's the place to be when it's warmer and they have the doors open looking out to the water. The waitress was very friendly and had a great sense of humor.
I had the garlic parm oysters that were very good. Along with the Hook Up burger which is a 50/50 ratio of ground beef to ground bacon combination with cheddar cheese and fried egg with chipotle aioli. Couldn't finish it. It was huge and very tasty. I will definitely be coming back to this place when it warms up to take advantage of their deck and bar.
