“a great place for afternoon drink and snacks”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

After travels from Napa we ended up in this nice bar. We intended to only take a drink but after having seen all nice snacks we decided to also order oysters and calamari. The food was freshly prepared and it combined perfectly with the wine. Also the staff was very relaxed and professional

Note: The day after we came in for coffee and learned they there was no espresso machine so I got a very flat coffee.

Conclusion; go for drinks, snack and dinner but find another place for coffee

“Where everything was 5 stars”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

We got in with no reservation one late afternoon. Tiny slice of a space with friendly and fast service. The sourdough was divine. The oysters were fresh and fabulous. The crab cake was delightful and every bit of the seafood was very fresh and beautifully prepared. Nice selection of local micro brews and a fantastic finish with key lime pie and a great cup of coffee.

“A simple and tasty meal”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

The clerk at St. Moritz Sweaters (great sweaters by the way) recommended A W Shucks for a light quick meal which it was. We had clam chowder and salads. The clam chowder was very good and the salad was very fresh. The service was fast, and the waitress friendly. The restaurant is small and simple but adequate. I would recommend it!

“oysters not fresh”
Reviewed May 10, 2014

Friendly service but some of the oysters were not really fresh and the crab cakes, though large, were awful, with little crab and some kind of filling, maybe breadcrumbs? We couldn't tasted the crab, so we left them on the plate.
