Great place for oysters! My family loves oysters and this place had them for $1 each and they were fresh and delicious. Rest of the menu were also good. My son loves their hot wings and fries. The ambiance is casual with some fun decor!

Go for the raw bar, stay for the dinner. Good for bar menu and entertainment, and finer dining inside.

From 12-5 $1 oysters. Great service. Fun atmosphere. We also ordered the Mediterranean plater. It came with two types of hummus and well prepared grape leaves. The cheesecake for dessert was to die for.
