On a crowded Father’s Day with perfect weather this place was hopping. They sat us outdoors with a short wait .The service was freindly and knowledgeable. The oysters were great The wine and beer list adding a fabulous accompaniment. All in all a memorable experience.

They have private rooms for events, but atmosphere is relaxed because of location of this place. Both tourists and locals come to this place. So dress code is basically your choice.
