It's as good as all the reviews say-the oysters, monkfish you name it are delicious. The service is outstanding. Upstairs is full of charm & less noisy than downstairs--perfect for a dinner. Try it-it's worth it but get reservations--it's always booked.

We really enjoy eating here. The wait staff is friendly and the food is great. They start you out with a fresh glass of cucumber water. You buy oysters individually so each day, they give you a menu of the different oysters from around the United States (and sometimes abroad) and you can mix it up and try ones from different places. They have a plethera of different sauces/toppings for them as well. Don't like oysters or also looking for something else? The lobster roll is out of this world as is the homestyle Maryland crab soup with short rib. This restaurant is nothing short of amazing, sitting in the charming neighborhood of Fells Point in Baltimore.

Always crowded....reservations a must. Try the Jonah crab...cousin to the Florida Stone Crab. Parking can be challenging. Always fresh seafood.

We stayed at a hotel down the street and this place was recommended by our hotel. It was literally a 3 minute (if that) walk. We were greeted by a very friendly hostess and then taken upstairs to the dining room. The dining room was small and quaint and our server, Julia, was very knowledgeable and friendly. We ordered from the raw bar and the menu and were delighted by all of our food. The seafood was fresh and tasty, the sides were delicious, and the service was wonderful. Absolutely recommend, absolutely would return on our next trip to Baltimore!!! The ONLY drawback is that the "rolls" (lobster, shrimp, etc.) were a bit smaller than I have had at other places, but it was still delicious.
