Great oyster selection from up and down the east coast, plus local. Nice wine choices, cool vibe, not touristy at all. Get the pork belly!!

Gourmet Market turned restaurant featuring fresh local seafood, steaks, crabcakes to die for, creative sandwiches of house roasted meats on fresh baked bread, and one of the best selection of oysters on the East Coast. Outside dinning in season, extensive wine selection and best prices too.
