Had lunch there on a Sunday afternoon and the service and food were great. Not too big, not too small, pretty casual on the water with great views of the bay. Substantial beer/wine selection and the seafood was fresh and tasty. Bloody Mary's recommended!! Overall great experience.

Hard to find, on the second floor of an aged building, looks dark and old. Steps to the left of the building. Up we go. This place is clean and clean. You have to order from the counter. Staff are smiling and professional. We ordered oysters first. Fresh raw (these were the best of all we ordered, full of flavor), fresh with mignonette (second best, great sauce with a touch of heat from fresh pepper) baked with Parmesan (3rd best with great Parmesan cheese), Mediterranean baked (4th best, a good mix of olives). We also ordered lobster and crab bisque, this bisque had great flavor and color, but was not thick enough for my liking. The alligator and white bean chili was the best i had ever had, not that i eat alligator every day. I loved this place. Find it and go there......

Excellent food at totally reasonable prices with super service and a great view of the water. We ordered many different kinds of oysters (I didn't eat them but my companions said they were excellent), I had the conch cakes with mango slaw (not only delicious but also very creative), deep fried green beans and sweet potato fries. Everything was really delicious!!

Liked the oysters, bisque and shrimp. Can't think of anything we didn't like. Maybe they didn't serve breakfast.
