This was our sole reason for stopping in Portland. Menu, apparently, hasn’t changed much. Went for lunch and sat on patio with our dogs. Very friendly waitress. Good food: I had fish tacos that were very small but tasty; should have ordered the three! Husband...More

The oysters here are fixed perfectly ! You get to watch them clean oysters. Hollis was helping us and we had great conversations with her. I believe she was leaving for other reasons but told us how she enjoyed working there.

I haven't been here in a few years but have always enjoyed. The oysters didn't disappoint, although the price seemed a lot higher than I recall in the past. We did a sampler and really enjoyed all of them. The service really took away from...More
