Excellent assortment of superb oysters. Wide array of seafood, very nicely presented. Service was excellent. Good wine list. Ambient noise is moderate, but not intrusive. What a great place!!

Here with a group. I had the lobster roll which was excellent. Lots of chunks of fresh lobster served with equally excellent fries. Everyone in the group enjoyed what they ordered. The service was excellent.

This is hands down some of the greatest fresh seafood around. It is prepared unlike anywhere I've tried in the past. I really loved their uptown location for it's coziness and quaintness. But this location serves a great variety of everything as well. It's got...More

The space is large with lots of tables as well as a large bar area with seating. The place was packed including the bar area. Once we got the attention of a bartender it went rather smooth. Had some wine at the bar. Good service.
