I really wanted some good fish, I tried the Faroe salmon dish. I was nice sized with Bibb lettuce and capers on top and tomatoes. It was tender and very tasty. I had a kale salad on the side that was much better than expected....More

Stopped at this place for drinks and oysters. It has a great happy hour where oysters are a 1.50 and with drink specials. It was delicious and an awesome value. Saw some entree plates being served and would definitely go back for dinner.

Great, fresh seafood. Small but varied wine list. The Albariño from Spain was a perfect accompaniment for the seafood. Reasonable prices. Friendly staff. You can’t go wrong at this place.
