This is one of our favorite spots in town to stop for drinks and food with friends or on the go. Everything is always great. I love their fish tacos, grilled, Chinese shrimp salad and Cesar salad with salmon. Beer is cold service is great. Dine inside or out.

One of the best fish or calamari taco's I've had the pleasure of DEVOURING, and then asking for more. The calamari appetizer is also fantastic, cooked perfectly. A lot of place overcook to the point of rubbery and chewing, not the Brig, they do it right!

It is probably our fav hangout for Happy Hour and Taco Tuesday- cheap prices, excellent food. The calamari tacos is wonderful. Very active bar area- very attractive place

We go in for lunch frequently. We start with a dozen of the various oysters. We then switch to a dozen of the ones we like best. Next, we switch to either calamari or fish tacos. Of course, we are having two or three of the exceptional drinks. Then you uber home :-)

They are perfect, just the right amount of pernod...very fresh hand shucked oysters, bacon, spinach and cheese. We could eat them daily!!!! Fish tacos and spinach salad are good too and Wednesdays are half off bottle of wine. But it's the oysters that we come back for....

Love the newly remodeled oyster and bar are, they have great happy hour deals on drinks and food which are equally good. Service is always good. Don't like the remodeled restaurant areas it's a miss, feels like a CoCos for the pricing in this area it just doesn't feel worthy. Food is okay but doesn't taste fan to table, tastes... More

Updated decor and menu. Bar and outside seating has increased. Very bright and Industrial decor. Good food. Friendly staff. Popular with locals. Crab and lobster cobb was very good. Half serving would have been enough. Request extra dressing. July salmon special was good, but not outstanding. Did have to return fish to kitchen to get fully cooked. Comprehensive wine and...

We used to eat here very often - but following the remodel about a year ago, we're not as likely to visit this restaurant. The entire "mood" of the restaurant has changed - it used to be a relaxing and private place to come following a long day of work. The lights were dimmed and you felt relaxed and private.... More

My wife and I stopped here for a late lunch and were truely surprised by the best service we have encountered in a long while. We each had the Crab and Shrimp salad with each having a different dressing. The salads were very large with enough to take home. Also their coffee is something exceptional.

The overhaul has freshen up the mainstay. The bar has oyster bar and great happy hour inning options. The bar area is suitable for both happy hour and dining. It's contemporary lively and food and service is very good. The dining room is a bit of a miss on decor feeling like a Denny's more than fine dining, they need... More
