Oysters by the dozen!

I'm 50/50 when it comes to oysters in a half shell. At this restaurant they were delicious and local. The fresh horseradish and cocktail sauce went well. I had the yellow fin tuna for dinner. The fish was great, but could use a bit more sauce. It also came with a side wedge salad which was a great... read more

We always go here every time we visit Corpus Christi.A very nice menu and wine selection. I like the bar for Happy Hour with half price oysters on the half shell and anything else on the menu. Don't hesitate.

Love the coconut shrimp here. Everything is fresh. The atmosphere is lively. I think a bit pricey, but food is consistently good

Visiting the area and needed a sushi fix. This restaurant really hit the spot. The best part of the meal was the oysters. Dinning solo, I sat at the bar and watched Josh shuck the oysters personally. The oysters were fresh and flavorful. Delish. The sushi was pretty good too. The only thing wrong was the sashimi was cut into... More

Food was good. Nice atmosphere. Good service. We did have one problem with part of our meal but it was handled quickly. I would go again the next time I am in Town.

We ate lunch on a Sunday , but waited a very long time for drinks and appetizers. When asked for sauce or ketchup the wait was also long. Then the food which usually is great was ruined with everyone's fish too well done and the rice was barely cooked. One order of crab cakes was fine. The manager came out... More

We waited quite a while for a seat which is okay, but the service wasn't that great. The oysters were alright, though not the best we've ever had. I'm glad they ended up being on the happy hour special. I would give it another shot, but it won't be a regular spot for us.

Fresh seafood. Oysters were in season for this visit. Coconut shrimp on appetizer menu were delicious, plus the presentation was beautiful.

The food is consistently good but it would be nice to add some more uniquie menu items. i know thay added sushi in the last years. The sushi here isn;t my favorite. I generally stick to the fish of the day specials and of course the sald with the walnut dressing.
