“Good food with reasonable prices make this a real find, especially in a shopping center”
Reviewed April 15, 2014 via mobile

After 3 lunches and 2 dinners, I can heartily recommend this restaurant. The food has always been good to excellent, and the prices are very reasonable. The 3 item lunch special is especially worthwhile.

“Not as good as before”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

Had a four star dinner in the fall, so yesterday was disappointing. The highlight was the beet salad with goat cheese- at $8 the only bargain of the night. The catastrophe was the fried clam strips. At $14 for an appetizer, we expected many more clams than we got, and there was way too much breading. Calamari was hot and not too chewy, but again had too much breading. The mahi taco appetizer was a joke with pieces of fish not even half the length of either taco. At $10, that is silly. Not likely to return with so many nearby options with more consistent food and at more reasonable prices.

“Nice find for oysters”
Reviewed March 15, 2014

We went after a very tough couples massage. We were walking around in a mental fog but were able to make do. The service was very good and so was the food. We had a dozen oysters (very good) followed by spinach and cheese casserole, grilled shrimp on lettuce, a a ciopino made with critters that come from the Chesapeake. All of this washed down with prosecco.

I did have a squint at the decor because it seemed like Co. was stuck between fancy and local hangout. I think everyplace in Potomac must do double duty. I say go if you can. Oyster is the good.

“Great Service, Good food”
Reviewed March 2, 2014

Have visited several times. Recommend the crab stuffed oyster, it's pricey but tasty. Have had the rosemary chicken and the Chesapeake something (forget the actual name) and both were good. Usually go with what's the special that day.
