Very seafood oriented menu with great options! Oysters from West and East Coast as well as Canada. BPG is like a fine tuned violin. Everything is perfection!

If you like fish and seafood then this is the place to be. I prefer to sit at the raw bar. Great oysters. ...then fish. It's a BYO so splash out on a Challis Premier Cru and enjoy!

This is a nice little cozy spot in the heart of Princeton that serves fresh seafood as well as other food. It's not an intimate spot as it can get pretty noisy. There's an option of sitting outside or indoors. The assorted oysters, shrimp dumplings...More
