“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

While taking a break from the Beau Rivage, we stumbled upon this amazing restaurant. Sat at the bar where We shared oysters and ordered an entree. Had the opportunity to try the local brews. Great staff & great food!

“Very good eats and reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

We dined for lunch on Sunday and I got the yellowfin tuna which was really good with the aioli sauce. The portions were not huge but just enough to fill up and the waitress was nice and accomodating. All around good place to eat and would recommend it to friends.

“Best Raw Oysters Around”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013

I have eaten here before but this time we ate at the actual oyster bar downstairs where the shuckers are busy at their craft preparing the oysters for the guests in a variety of methods from raw to grilled to florentine to whatever. We enjoyed visiting with the shuckers as they quickly opened and prepared dozens and dozens of oyster at a fanatical pace. Kudos to these guys for a hard job well done. The staff was very friendly and the place was packed with guests including many locals which is always a good sign. We will back!
