I loved their oysters and vast selection! But- I would like to keep the info quiet, since it is not a large place and getting a table can be very difficult. We went without a reservation (non available) and waited a long time before they opened for lunch and were able to get a seat at a hi- top. Soup... More

Their lobster Mac-n-cheese is to die for! They also have a marvelous with lobster salad. One of these days I'll have to try something new but so far I just go there when I have the craving for those two. Also have dog friendly outdoor seating!

Quaint little spot in Fells Point. Prepare to wait cause it is busy but worth the wait. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Get the lobster roll. It was the best I have ever tasted!!

When you are on the coastline you have to eat seafood. We had a great time with the seafood tower and will do it again. The place is small and the wait was pretty long on Saturday. We didn't call ahead to inquire about reservation because we just landed that day. Great for couples or groups. Personally I think a... More

I'll start off by saying if you go here and don't want to sit at the bar, make a reservation. When you make your reservation, ask to have Teresa Marconi as your server. She is hands down probably the best waitress I've ever had. She is attentive, knowledgable, and very passionate. The food here is top notch. There is nothing... More

I have never been here when it's not busy, so prepare to wait! They don't take reservations so you will have to give your name to the hostess and try to find room at the bar. There are tables upstairs, and the first floor has bar seating and a few bar -height tables along the wall. I recommend eating at... More

Food is really fun and enjoyable. Service is sub par with lots of attitude. No reason for that with so many other places to go to.

The oysters are not anything like their descriptions. This is most disappointing when you want to try several different oysters.

You like what I did just then. Not only were the oysters on point (a ton of selection ranging from wild Maryland oysters to your Prince Edward Island (PEI) oysters, this place had a great selection), but the appetizers were unique, exquisite and large, the entrees were fresh and fun spins on classics, and the service was awesome! Bar tender... More
