We LOVE this place. Because it is not dog friendly, we can only stop in when we come to Carmel without the pupper dog. On our recent trip, we were alone and so stopped in twice :)
The place is very small and you may need to wait outside until a table is available. The smaller the group, the better. We sat at the bar both times this trip. I prefer the higher bar chairs in front of the oyster bar, rather than the bar stools. The bar does have the much needed purse hooks for your bag which is very handy. This place is so good, I say take whatever table they can give you!
I ordered half dozen oysters, 2 of each of the available selection for that day and enjoyed all of them. We also ordered the oysters 'shuckefeller.' I did not care for them too much, very garlicy. My fiancee did like them; she does not prefer oysters raw. The crabcake is another great option. You can order it a la carte which is good for a late lunch or snack to share (its a good portion, not small). I ordered the chowder (white) and half seafood sandwich. I thought it was great!
You have to order the bloody mary here. Even if you don't normally like them. They are killer here!
This place is always very lively and noisy. I would say it's best for couples or small groups without children.
