Happy hour: 6 oysters and beer for $12.50. OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS!!! The oysters were fresh and delicious. You can choose from a list of oysters and they tell you what kind of oysters they are and where they came from. You choose a beer from the list. My beer was awesome but I forgot what it was called. It had hints of fruits. My husband ordered the scallops and he loved them.

I didn't know oysters could be gourmet. I ate 5 different kinds of oysters here, and one was better than the next. We sampled all of the appetizers, and they were so wonderful. They also serve craft beers that we loved. Restaurant was crowded and loud, but the service was outstanding! With so many people there, they still managed to make us feel special and welcome.

Wanted to live in this place. Great chatty staff, low key decor and the best selection of oysters we've ever eaten. The simplicity of great Ales and oysters is priceless. We hung out with the staff as it was a quiet night and they shouted us a drink with desert. Totally made our trip

Besides the oysters and the excellent local beers we we served a perfectly balanced main dish of fish and vegetables (monkfish and brussels sprouts). Friendly and knowledgeable service (oyster recommendations). On a Friday night we could be seated within 20 minutes. Affordable prices.

Recently in NYC for a few days. Found a website with so many positive reviews of Upstate we hopped in a cab and set out for dinner. Arrived to find a small place bursting with style and in time to enjoy happy hour. Six oysters and a beer, $12 in NYC! The selection was amazing. Each one we tasted was better than the next.
Simple, a bit rustic but warm and cozy. Staff friendly and knowledgeable. We had 2 rounds of oysters follow by crab cakes. Perfect scallops with risotto were next, ended with whiskey cake and coffee. Best seafood I have ever eaten in NYC!
