Excellent food. Specialty is bluepoint oysters Went on Mother's Day and although they had a limited menu, (as do most restaurants on holidays) everything was delicious. We did not feel rushed at all and each member of a party of five thoroughly enjoyed our choice.

Ambiance not helped by yellow street lights streaming in window, curtains weren’t used. Wait staff efficient but not overly friendly, had to double as hostess when we arrived. Cutlery offered was a large steak knife which had to double as a butter knife and to...More
