Went here in July a family of four. A small place but they could fond a tanke for us. No kids menue but they were flexible and could make something for the kids. Our oysters and tuna burger was delicious and so was the wine.

I am pretty sure they do not take reservations as this is a very very small restaurant. It basically is a couple of tables and two raw bars. I think they have a pretty quick turnover rate because of how small it is and the... More
