Beautiful restuarant with a gorgeous view of the water! Dining partner had the fish of the day which was likely the best dish we tried. The ceviche was smothered with the cilantro jalapeno sauce and you lost the taste of the seafood - which is...More

Great happy hour and local selection of oysters. Many fine bourbons too. Bar staff was excellent. Right on the river so the view is great.

This restaurant has excellent service. It may be good for oysters and drinks. I cannot judge that area of the menu for I did not partake in those offerings. For a dining experience it fails. The soft belly fried clams were overcooked. The clam chowder...More

Hi Don, Thanks for taking the time to offer feedback. I'm sorry you had a less than ideal experience. Did you alert your server or management that you were unhappy with your meal? These dishes usually get great reviews, but that's not to say that...More

My wife and I are not into oysters but they are obviously the highlight of this restaurant. We felt the food, although unique in style, was a bit overpriced. 2 drinks, 2 clam chowder and one entrée for $55. The entrée (stuffed lobster) was not...More
