Went for a Sunday brunch with my boyfriend. They had a wide section of oysters. 'Hama Hama' is the best, creamy and rich, leaves a great after taste. The fish sandwich was also amazing, very crispy and delicate. The restaurant was spacious which would be good for families and large groups.

According to my wife, who is the oystermonger in our family, the oysters here are ta-di-fa. There are probably about 15 varieties available at any time, and everyone on the waitstaff knows so much about them that they can match them to your palate.

And there's plenty of excellent food for everyone else, too. I love the fried oyster sliders, the cheeseburgers, the steaks, and all of the seafood dishes (which is really why you'd probably go) are awesome, too.

The décor is wide open and unfortunately that makes it a bit loud, but that's my only complaint.

I wish I could eat here everyday. Everything was wonderful. Oysters for sure. And gypsy hot sauce was really good.

Heard that this was one of the best seafood restaurants in Boston, but would not go that far. The food was good but not great. We waited for over an hour for a table and were quite happy with everything until we became invisible. The only way we could get the account was to get up and leave. Will not be back.
