The oysters are great, the lobster roll was absolutely delicious, but when it was presented to me I was like “where’s the rest of it?!” - I definitely recommend checking this place out for a drink, oysters, and splitting the lobster roll as an appetizer....More

Had to wait 1-1/2 hrs. for a seat by the window. Hub had oysters which were good and I had a lobster roll which was small but tasty. Cole slaw was spicy and not that tasty. Food somewhat overpriced and would not eat here again...More

We came at 6:30pm on a Friday and waited just over an hour for a window seat. The food was great and the oysters were fresh. Not the most comfortable of settings though but would still recommend it to others! Pity they don’t take bookings...More

The oysters were great, but everything else was not great. Very poor layout and use of space - had to wait over 1 hour in the middle of the day. The lobster roll was TERRIBLE.

I'm not sure this would work well for kids. It's a loud restaurant with banquet style seating. At first glance the menu doesn't seem too pricey but it is when you take into account the tiny size of the portions, which they... More
