I guess I don't need to talk about oysters - they have a very good variety for every taste, - the rest of the food is very good as well. Good reasonably priced wine list. Finally, the branzino we had was probably the best we ever had, period.

The restaurant is not in walking distance of the boardwalk, but it is worth the ride. Our server was very friendly and a true professional. I got the lobster Mac n cheese and it was delicious. The corn chowder was also very good. This might be the best restaurant in AC!

The food is always fantastic and our last visit did not disappoint. From the fresh tomato salad to the halibut special....yum!

We live on and travel by boat and Atlantic City was one of our stops while moving north. A friend in Maryland had told us about it and said we had to try the Pommes Souffle. After that, we would never order French Fries again. So we stopped here. Our only problem with the place is that we came at 5pm to enjoy the happy hour specials and have some of their oysters. Regretfully, the bars were packed and the specials do not flow over into the table areas so we would have had many happy hour specials and drank a lot more had we been able to partake. That being said, we (2 couples) sat down and had a variety of items (Clam Chowder, their special(Alaskan Halibut to die for), Soft Shell Crab, Pommes Souffle [we'll never look at French Fries the same way] and a killer Banana pie) They waiter was super, the servers right on top of it, the young man that took are of the used items on the table could not have been more likeable and professional. It is upper scale and with what we had, I wouldn't expect any less. Maybe next time, we can get a seat at the bar and enjoy the happy hour.
