Stopping by at 4PM on a Monday worked out great. If you enjoy oysters, $1 a piece was nice and the choice was fine and they were shucked perfectly, with plenty of juice in the shell. Drinks were a bit pricey $8-$10 which probably makes up for the fine selection of menu items during happy hour at super prices. Would come back again if in town. Seafood is their specialty and they are proud of it.

Loved the fresh, open remodel (but the room can get noisy). Oysters fresh and served properly, chowder is very good with rich not too thick broth, fresh clams, and tasty bacon. Crab sauté never disappoints.

Wasn't sure if we would be able to get a table because they were booked with reservations... went in to eat at the bar but a table became available. Enjoyed some apps at the bar during happy hour - $1 oysters were great!! Moved to a table and everything we each ordered was delicious. The soup and the entrees. Service was great!

Great service and food. Leave room for dessert, Joe's cheese cake is excellent. Oysters are phenomenal. Salad was great to start our meal. Wide range of wines and drinks. Highly recommended.

This is a wonderful restaurant. The food was delicious and nicely presented. The fish was fresh and cooked perfectly. There was a live piano player, a nice bar scene, and the service was professional. If I get back to Atlantic City, I will definitely eat here again.
