If you love oysters like I do, definitely come by. We tried other dishes and they were good. Place is definitely busy. Depending on what time of day you go, if they get real busy, the service gets a bit hairy.

Stopped in for a quick bite for lunch. I enjoyed 1/2 a dozen oysters and half a sandwich. Also discovered they had Pappy Vanwinkle bourbon which I have been on a mission to find

Very nice place. The fish sampler was great! Good choice. The beer is excellent and we picked a bottle of wine at a decent price. Great choice of food and nice place to be!

Wife and I had a great meal with drinks and great service. Located right on Ocean Avenue in shopping area and close to our Hotel the Carriage House Inn. Little noisy and not a lot of seating but everything else was very good.

I love this place, we stop in as much as we can, we love the shuckafeller oysters, the cold sampler plate is awesome, the clam chowder with their french bread is great too. In fact, we are planning on going this weekend again.
