Pretty good oysters and very nice staff. One of the best places to go for happy hour, but they are not open for lunch.

Quirky but really great find on far end of Pearl close to 9th with an oyster bar and numerous seafood choices as well as land options on the menu. Sat at the bar for dinner and had a sampling of oysters from Maine to Washington. All extremely fresh and tasty. Followed with a spicy yet delicious cup of gumbo then a rare tuna special that was fantastic. Service at the bar was great, the bartender had a top notch knowledge of the wine list. This was my 2nd trip in and won't be my last.

the menu may not meet everyone's taste if you have a group and it is a little pricey. The service was very good.

While it is noisy, it offers very tasty dishes and a wonderful happy hour with great prices on oysters and other dishes. It is consistently good and worth a visit if you are into seafood.

We made a meal of the wonderful appetizers and drink specials. The strawberry lemonade was very good. Would suggest going there for sure. Loves the atmosphere.
