For Father's Day we took my husband out for oyster. I had the catfish filet basket. The fish was good, so were the fries. I am used to a moister slaw and tastier hush puppies. Nice view of the river and optional inside/outside dining. Entertainment on Sunday with cover charge.

We arrived around 8:15 on a Saturday evening and wondered if we had even found the place. But once inside, we were hooked. The owner told us that the ovens, grill, and fryer has been shut down but the steamer and raw bar were available. That turned out to be the best news we could hear - we had Argentinian shrimp, snow crab legs, and raw oysters - all superbly cooked, seasoned, and served. Not a fancy place but great food in a true marina oyster bar atmosphere!

Food was okay, drinks were okay, atmosphere was casual. The restaurant itself looks very mediocre (not super duper clean or tidy).

After eating raw oysters over a week ago my husband is still sick. Called owner, we were never offered an apology even after talking to him two times. We are waiting on blood work to determine exactly what he has. Found out also that the health rating is a whole "87". WOW! So after being sick and missing work for a week needless to say we will NEVER be back! Thanks Louis for being so concerned for your customers.

The setting on the river lends a fish camp air to this "dive". Plenty of fried seafood options, although I went with a dozen oysters. The cocktail sauce packs some heat even without the horseradish! The waitstaff was friendly, attentive and efficient. Based upon the local turnout, this place is plenty popular. I went on a night without live music, but there was an abundance of evidence of great acts to hear to add to the ambiance.
