What kind of happy hour gives only $2 off for 6 oysters? It's still well over $2 per oyster. That's crazy talk!

Sorry, I don't eat oysters, but I'm guessing that's not a good deal!! We found better dining at that price point elsewhere on island. Service was excellent though.
What dates will you be closed this fall. We came around Sept 1 last year and you were closed. When do you reopen this year in Sept. When do you close?
