Went there for happy hour for a few Oyster Shooters. Saw a few burgers being made as the kitchen is right behind the bar and couldn't resist getting one. Defiantly one of the best burgers ever, cooked perfectly.

If I lived near would go occasionally, but doubt I would go out of my way. Oysters 3.50 plus each, lobster over $30. Just didn't impress me much - felt a bit like Red Lobster-good but not great

This is my wife's new favorite place for lunch or dinner. Food is wonderful, service is above par. Prices are steep and it's often crowded (parking can be a challenge) but did I mention the wonderful food? Happy hour is a smart time to go.

These folks allegedly bring in oysters 2 times a day to keep things fresh. Both east and west coast oysters are available and you can trust the "oyster sommelier". They can tell you the bouquet, start and finish of each region's oyster pick. Amazing. I...More

If you like seafood you would enjoy this place. The flavors are quiet intense but worth trying at least once if your in town.
