Raw Oysters and clams are the best and the crab cake sandwich was the best. Going back again in a couple of days.

Great food in a relaxed environment. Have Rhode Island whole belly clams on the menu, which is hard to find outside of New England. Enjoyable experience.

The raw bar was excellent and I highly recommend having something from there as an app. I tried 3 different types of oysters (never tried before- really cool to taste the differences by region), while my wife stuck with the safer shrimp and crab claw option. All of it was delicious. We split scallops and swordfish for the main course... More
