Great place for dinner and drinks. Shrimp, Mushroom and Goat Cheese flatbread were very good appetizers. Lobster Mac, Oyster Poboy and Grouper Poboys were very good. Walls and ceilings were covered with signed dollar bills. Have to add one.

Fun place, great oysters and crab legs!! Patrons donate dollar bills and they are stapled all over the place. After a few years they remove them and donate to a local charity... nice thing they do
